Will call / sms you Biju. I have a Canon A710iS digicam. Is it possible to take pro-shots like you guys do with such a cam? Or does one need something like the EOS?

It was a great pay and practise session. Had a good turnout. I got my first racing lessons from Nitrous and Aditya (man you were too too good). Sorry for being a chicken and getting scared. Those tyre screams were mind blowing.

Some random images. Tifosikrishna, Rudraji and other experts, please give me some advice.

Good work Mail, the blurry background has done a good job giving us the sensation of speed in those images.

Wow, there was a Gypsy on track!!! Impressive!! How was it faring against the other vehicles?

What do you expect, the MMSC is like their backyard. Did Adit get his Esteem on track finally?

Was anyone timing the cars? The Cedia must have put in some awesome lap times, i'm sure.

My passenger neoranjit timed me at 2.32 on the full circuit. The gypsy was fun, underpowered and behaved in an impeccable manner. I'd never expected that it would turn out to be like that.

OK..The turnout was good..and there were NO TEMPERATURE NEEDLES GOING UP as suggested by some elite members!

rest later!

Nice images Saiyan. However I love to have some sense of action in the images though I freeze action at times. I have edited the images with some help from my brother to add some action. Sorry for not taking permission before editing.

Couple of quick points
1. Caps is equal to shouting on the forum. You don't need to do so.

2. Good that the temp needle didn't go up, that point was made by me as per personal experience turbo cars and it was not meant for NA cars.

3. I am glad you all enjoyed your time there and let it be that way instead of pointing fingers and making it personal.

ps: have been on the track enough times and have seen more than enough to warrant an opinion of my own and the best part I never even did put it on the thread. I believe in being safe tthan sorry.

Nice set of pics there.
