Default Track Day 31-08-2008

Hi friends,

Couple of months ago I gave my Unicorn for complete Engine work at 333 Racing service Center in Chennai. I picked up the bike on 30th Aug. I was aware about the Saloon car & Superbikes event on 31st Aug. I started at 11AM on 31st Aug and on my way ride to Hosur visited the Track at 12PM and spent almost one hour. It was raining very heavily still the drivers were ready for action. Below are few pictures attached includes even my Bike images.

The RWD zen somehow does not perform as great as the FWD ones. Did witness the action at MMST last time around!

Missed this time as the Pondy "hangover" thread was active and I was a part of it!

does any one have the specs on the zen. it looks like a fwd due to the fatter slicks up front and slightly slimmer tires at the back.

nice pics.

The rims on the mondeo look quite dashing.

Also the blue zen looks a bit odd
Dont know why!

It runs an esteem engine and is a RWD.

They also had normal E-Zens and contrary to our thinking, the RWD did not perform as well as the FWD ones.
