Default Bangalore K-1000 Rally: Aug 8-10 2008. (Pg 3 with report and pics.)

Anyone from T-BHP participating?

Are there any plans for visiting and watching this in action? Let's plan to go there as a group and have some fun.

What say..???

BTW, I don't know the exact location of the spot where this will be held over 3 days and which day/location is best suited for watching and enjoying this.

The location remains the same as last year Sidlaghatta methinks.

This is the schedule as far as the bangalore leg is concerned. The recce and scrutiny happens during the previous days.

Aug8 - Leg1
Aug9 - Leg2
Aug10-SSS (palace grounds)

A few of us will be there to witness it and I think we have a few participants from t-bhp too.

Folks who are participating all the very best to you guys.Come back with flying colors.

And where would that be? Any pointers/directions for people living in South Bangalore?

So, do you suggest that Palace Grounds on the 10th is the best option to experience the K-1000? Or would that be some other place on the 8th/9th

yes, its the same stages as last year.

Recce is on 6th august.

There are quite a few places where spectators can watch the rally on 8th and 9th.
The stages are near siddlaghatta, which is around 80kms from bangalore.

The venue is a little ahead of Devanahalli. I have no maps to the location, lemme see if I can get a road map to the venue.

Well each has his own preference, to me the event at palace grounds is more of a show event than a real back breaker. I prefer to see them drive through unchartered territory and kick up some dust and stones.

Its fun to see them go sideways slinging stones and gravel at full throttle .

Thumbs up Accommodation

Yippeeee I am finally coming to Banglore to see the K 1000 Rally.

Luckily Dad had some travel vouchers with him that would enable me to travel economy class to and fro from Delhi to Banglore.

However unluckily I don't have any such vouchers for hotels and hence have a shoestring budget for the same.

What I wanted to ask was that are there any reasonably priced places for accommodation in Banglore ? or preferably could I stay in some kind Bhpian's house ( understand student baba !).

No replies to the above post yet. Come on baba, I too want to see those cars going full throttle and doing pendulum turns .

And the SSS stage is an added bonus as well !

This would be the first time I would get an opportunity to see the action unfolding right in front of me and thus need your help with the problem mentioned in the above post to make it possible.

Thanks speed, although there is a comprehensive listing of hotels in the guide, it does not have any info about their respective room rents.

Another thing, presently I plan to fly on the 7th to Bangalore and return to Delhi on the 10th by around 11 pm.
Will it be worth flying earlier to see the Recce ?

I mean would seeing it help me to know rally car construction better ?

Recce is only for the competitors, spectators won't be allowed into the stages during recce.

So flying to bangalore on 7th will be fine for you.

For accommodation, just google about the rates, you will find some information.
