Oh No, ajmat. We were expecting to see your RS in action.
And I don't think end-May is going to be any better, as far as Chennai weather goes.

Chennai weather is more like the same all round the year IMO. Hot and humid. Besides I am sure loads of them would have turned had the same thread been put up by Farhan and Co without asking these questions. I think the testing for the single seater and saloon cars season on going on isnt it?

As pawan mentioned, it is for the long loop.

I think even if we manage to get 2 or 3 cars on track we are going to go ahead and do it. There is no point in waiting endlessly. Those want to join in are most welcome. 1 elantra is confirmed, I think so is vikram too? Can we have some of the Anna's who are coming to drive on track post up as well? Where is nitrous when you need him?

You can expect quite some crowd from Chennai, if the participation in our recent meets is any indication. But then no idea how many will be bringing their cars on track.

Anyway, let's have this track day as scheduled - its been a long time. The weather doesn't make any difference for us Chennai-vaasis.

I don't think that's fair. People are allowed to ask whatever they want, considering cars are worth a lot of money. And maybe you should ask Farhan for some help, in that case.

Akshay, are you coming for the track day ? I remember reading somewhere about some boost stuff done to your car. Would love to see it in action. Is it on the BlueBaleno ?

Let me just say that I would take their word blindly based on their experience and depth of knowledge

biju. Its a saturday and we have the whole of sunday to chill out. What better than some action at the track and a meet to call it a day.

So guys, please start confirming your participation for the trackday. Mcl has only a week to complete the formalities.

Sponsors? You're joking right?

I will sponsor you (terms and conditions apply) as long as I can drive your car on track. What say now?

Guys, I am sure Rahul will show you all a good time. I would have loved to be part of the organising comitee, but can't since I am officiating the 24 hour karting event this weekend in Goa.

Yes the weather is hot, so carry a lot of water to drink. I am sure the cars will all be ok if driven within their limits.

Have fun guys, will try and join you guys if time permits.

Lol, it's BlueBaleno now, is it? Anyway, can't say for sure, some more work to be carried out, after which I will be wiped clean monetarily. I have large plans and small paycheques, and they don't combine well. Fingers crossed, I'll be there.
