There will be a clash with the F1 race but I am willing to miss it. Don't want to push the track day back any further.
Same here. Infact the first trackday that i attended back in 2006, also fell on a race weekend. Initially, i had 2nd thoughs but once we got there, nobody seemed to be bothered.

Watching an F1 race is fun, but nothing compared to a trackday where you are in the driver's seat.

i am in for it. I am not sure whether to bring my i10 kappa or a feista 1.6.

I drive the kappa a lot so want to know its limits on the track.

My kappa has done only 2000kms is it ok, but then I have been giving it the heat treatment for a while now.

Fiesta 1.6 will be fun to drive on track.

Is it 1.6s or just 1.6?

Reading through the thread, it would be worth coming just too see all the modded beauties.

F1 can wait +1 for Trackday.

OK now that the date is decided, I would request you all to send me a PM so that I can compile a list of people along with their cars.

I guess sometimes you might want to check out the VFM quotient of your chappals too.

Yeah, I know the fiesta is a better car for the track.

But then this is my first track day in a car, I want to drive a car which I know. The fiesta is my brothers so really dont know the car's handling much.

I have decided to come with the kappa the first time, when i dont want to worry about the lap times it does not matter which car for now.

I just want to drive so hard that my new tyres should go bald... that should be fun skating and sliding...

Looking forward to meet all you track legends I see in team bhp.

I feel leaving early from Bangalore and getting to track and reading the track conditions and watching the bikes should be nice... but open for anything.

The plan will be to leave Bangalore by 6:00 - 6:30 and reach Chennai by 12:00. Have lunch and then hit the track by 1:30 - 2:00. Drive on the track till you feel like it and then head back to Bangalore.

The confirmations as of now are as follows

From Bangalore
1. vikram_d - Swift
2. reddream - ?

From Chennai
1.
2.

Please add you names to the above list.
