Its gonna be a scorcher. Be prepared for intense heat and humid weather.

Nonetheless I will come. May not get on track with my car though. Will hitch a ride with one of the participants for a change.

Pawan : u getting the eZen to the track? Vikram, would love to see the turbo'ed swift belt around on track.

When i asked Psycho about the track day he told me it would be ideal to hold it at the end of May since it's gonna be very hot till then.

Are you guys sure the cars can handle constant redlining in that kinda heat?

Racing oil and super good engine cooling system should help.

Track is off bounds for privateers on Sunday or so Mr.Sheshadri informed me. So saturday it will have to be.

Shan, once the season starts getting hold of the track is very very difficult. I know the troubles I faced last year when I some of my friends wanted to go to track. So we either do it when the opportunity presents itself or we wait and wait. In the end its the individuals choice. No one is going to force anyone to come.

Rahulkool (sounds like I am addressing myself), charges for one session will be around 1.25k. This will include track charges and service for those who want their tires changed etc. Rates will be finalized at the venue itself. It should not be much.

So Rahul (1885) is this confirmed for 26th April? Can we start getting confirmations from those who will be coming over to the track? That way we will have a fair idea of the number of participants.

P.S. Saturday is good since we can get together after the trackday. Most of the time, the folks just disperse since they have to drive back to bangy. This time around, we can have a proper meet and the boys can get some good rest with no urgency to return back to blore.

Agree with you, Aditya. This being on Saturday means we can have a relaxed evening.
Count me in. Though I won't be getting the Baleno on track.
