Thumbs up Rally of Coimbatore 2009 !!

Delhi's Philippos Matthai goes airborne in his Maruti Baleno during the first leg of the Rally of Coimbatore, the first round of the Speed-Indian National Rally Championship on Saturday. Mathai had to retire with mechanical problems.....(source Mail Today Pg 44)

He was leading the 1600 cc class with 1.5 minute lead. He could have comfortably finished in the top 3 overall, had it not been for the clutch failure...

Way to go Phil !! Congratulations on the "flying performance" !


Gaurav Gill also had to pack up prior to Phil due to a blown engine. Better luck to our Delhi lads next time.


Cheers

Wow that's great. His first race. Initially he wasn't that optimistic. His car got stuck somewhere, yet he finished 5th.

hey thank you guys.... Raaj & C10

new navi was blank as soon as i started on the stages....... had done testing with him but on the D day he literally went blank, had to push till i had vision of the track only

the navi checked me in with 5 minutes of early penalties too...

thought my day was over but saw bad luck had struck phil & joshi & saw them on the stages with their cars stalled. so started pushing the car to my max possibility and finished the rally with over 1.5 mins lead.

would have been 1 in top 5 overall if not for that 5 minute penalties

car handled well, well prepped by SAMY - kari sports

looking forward for the k 1000 in aug....... i am loving the stiff competition

Note from the Team-BHP Support Team : Please take the time to use proper punctuation as per Team-BHP rules. Avoid...typing...like...this. Thanks.

Thanks Raaj!! With 61 entries and 26 in our class, It was certainly a great experience driving this time, it was pure test of speed and endurance- both car and driver... the rally was also ironically called "Raid de Coimbatore" . Should have finished with a better placing- but we all know what rally is all about.

were you in cbe during the rally? If any of you guys have snaps from the rally kindly share it - my comp was 38.

Looking forward for K1000-Bangalore Aug 20-23.. see you guys there
