Just got back from the track. Local boy Rajini had a podium finish (3rd place) in the second race of the 600 cc category!

Missed the first race of the day (115 cc) and started off before the last one (Stunner 125cc) as well, to avoid the rush. Spoke to nitrous over phone but could not meet him or any of the other BHPians.

Had a stroke of luck while entering the venue. Stopped to ask directions for the ticket counter from a couple of gentlemen standing and talking near their car, when one of them asked "do you want tickets"? When I replied in the affirmative he immediately whipped out two Rs 400 tickets and handed them over to us. Told us to inform anybody checking the tickets they were complimentary tickets for buying a Honda Stunner from Surya Honda, and there will be no questions asked. No questions were asked and junior had a ball, thanks to the good samaritan!

But while leaving home, forgot to take the camera mobile and took an ordinary one in our hurry, so no pics to post.

Hi, I too was there at the event. A big big thanks to Farhan (better known as Sideways) & Mr. Pramod Chandok for helping me and two of my colleagues to get media pass and so access to all parts of the track. I got a few decent ones, however it needs to be processed, after a tired day, it's time for me to hit the sack. Thought of uploading a couple of photos before signing off....
