18. The Palio and manek's M800, which as nickatnite said, is a pocket rocket. And manek's brother sure knows how to get the max out of that car.

22. The track Esteem - they sure have some real stiff suspensions. Is it just me or is the rear left tyre off the track ?

You guys seem to have had a blast. Nice pictures.

Love the way Header's Gypsy looks in the pics. @Headers: Have you shortened the length of your Gypsy ala the Suzuki Samurai

Speedworks is a performance shop in Nungambakkam, owned by JD Madan. I have no idea about the speedworks audio shop. Tirestore stocks more than just tires.

Glad you had fun Ajo. I guess you wont stay away from the tracks now on.

No Shan. My car didnt get to track this time. The slicks I had earlier weren't good enough for the demands of the track, so I gave them off to a friend. Couldn't source a fresh set of slicks due to shortage of dough and time.

Had fun nevertheless.

OK, I forgot one important & awesome part of the day - guy's night out at n_aditya's place. His wife was at her parent's place and so he invited us over with a very simple agenda - "let's go to my place and get drunk".

So, after the lounge bar, we went to his place and had a great time there - food, drinks, music and ofcourse quite some chatting away.

Me and John were the last to leave his place - don't remember what time it was, though I am sure it was well past midnight. Thanks, aditya for being the perfect host - we had a really great time.

Yes, it is shortened. Or as nitrous would say (for reasons known only to him), it is a circumcised Gypsy. LOL.

1. The lengths some guys have to go to to persuade people to pose for a snap. The expression of neoranjit's face is just great.
Attachment 11769

2. For a snap, ajo kuch bhi karega - the chennai sun be damned.
Attachment 11770

3. We had some unusual spectators too at the track - a little shy of the paparazzi though.
Attachment 11771

4. While we were having fun burning fuel, there were some on the campus who were worrying about more mundane things like roti, kapda and makaan - the other side of India Shining.
Attachment 11772

OK, enough of non-car stuff. Coming to the cars & track snaps, this was a big learning experience for me. I learnt that while it looks so easy when you look at tifosi's track snaps, the reality is different when you venture out to take similar snaps.

So, moral of the story for me : Stick to people, animals and nature as subjects and don't bother sweating to take snaps of cars in action.

5. Starting off with the big tyre, which has always fascinated me.
Attachment 11773

Rest to follow...
....You were busy Saturday.That, i can gather. Nice pics, as always . Gosh!. I just didn't know he felt that way. I would have smiled for the photo!.I have a pic of neoranjit that i feel have to get his permission before i post. Or should i?....By the way, hogs like cars too.
