Each video for me is 400MB. I'm still trying to upload to Youtube. Patience guys, unless someone knows a quicker way to upload.

A couple of laps around the track for the camera. Did not push since my buddy riding shotgun was all over the place and was unable to keep the camera focused on the track. So took it neat and relaxed. So stuck to higher gears without over revving to save gas . Infact I was quite surprised with the FE despite the belting the engine received. Once in a while my car does give me a few pleasant surprises as well.

@petrol head - Next time you're on track, try and enter the corner a bit later. I can see that you're turning a bit early (which makes you think you're gaining time), but when it comes to exiting the corner, you are having to reduce you speed even further in order to keep the car from going off track.

Heres a nice vid which explains exactly what i mean.

@shan2nu

Point taken . Infact as I mentioned earlier the car was not very comfortable in the corners that required heavy braking coming into them. So was literally lifting off early to give added time for engine braking to aid my brakes which were miserable. Yeah those corners somehow I was not very comfortable and had a tendency to enter earlier since I did not want to miss the apex and run over to the outside. The car would just not behave in slower corners. Would try and correct the quicker entry the next time around for sure. Thanks

Binoy, those are some really well panned/tracking shots. Specially the one of the 91 looks fab.

Hey guys,

I'm new to Team BHP and I'm from Chennai. So does this racing happen every Sunday? Are there entries to be given? How is it done? I drive a Fiesta 1.6 kitted with Magnaflow, Pipercross Viper, Superchip, etc.

Really looking forward to some info on the track scene. Saw someone asking about superbikes. I have a Yamaha R1 too. Can I bring it to the track? I don't want to race the bike, but I want to race the car.

We took ~12 bottles of ice-cold water (don't want to rub it in but the water was superbly chilled and so refreshing ). When Amit & I took the second instalment of 6 bottles out of the fridge, there were around 15 bottles remaining.

As we were leaving Muscat Bakery, Siddu pulled up in the red RS....

And if I remember correctly, he was mentioning something about an over heating car.
