As in bombay, its pathetic to see that TBHPians do not bother to go for such events. As Sam had rightly mentioned, we always go for the speed run, but no one bothers coming for this.

What an event to reckon? I think every city should organise this and every Team Bhpian should participate in this.

Vikram_d and myself went for the rally. It was incredible fun, a nice drive, and, pardon the expression, a real eye-opener. Iceman and s0uljah were scheduled to come, but couldn't make it as both of them were working on a Sunday as well.

No one else from this forum of over 10,000 members and 1 million posts found time for this event. I'm sure there will be 1 million good reasons and excuses, unlike if there were to be a TBHP breakfast meet or drive to Yelagiri/Maddur/Mysore.

Waiting for Vikram's report...
