@nitrous:
thats a very tempting invite. i have been trying to be at a raceday for a long time now(either at CBE or Chennai). i will try this weekend.
Am i supposed to confirm participation in advance?
Is it for sat / sun or both days, and what time?
And yes - Last Sunday, i was in Chennai. It was HOT!! Hope it is a bit cooler this weekend. Would definitely be welcome, if we are supposed to hang around the track for the whole day.

Sorry, I did mean track day.
And, thanks for the links. I was in two minds whether to ask for links or search myself.

Cheers

John, Im using a common understandable term here.
The PnP should be used at the track.
Btw, its not much different. Just that in the Indian context, TimeAttacks have sent a benchmark so high that anything else should be called Pay and Practise.
PS: We'd better see some Michelin XM1s get worn,this weekend.
