To my untrained eyes he seemed to drive very well and the way he took the corners was amazing - I could still hear the tyres scream! I became nervous after a couple of laps and told him to drop me me back! I even shot a video of one full lap and will post it after converting it from .3gp.

Too bad I forgot his name in all the excitement! I think he left abruptly because he blew a tyre.

aargee's sweet little boy jelled very well with my son and both had a very good time. But both got bored after a while and wanted to go home, so we had to leave much earlier than expected.

My old lady was shown up really fast. She started overheating in 3 laps, so had to take it slow with long breaks in between. Next time will be better prepared.

My kids had a wonderful time when they went on track with me after all the cars had retired. Thanks to Farhan for that.

No, slipstream did not drive on the track, so it must be someone else's car.

awesome day

did around 18-20 laps, had to stop because my tyre were not holding up well, don't what happened but in lap few laps there was no grip whatsoever, i guess because of heat, did 2.27 as timed by bottle. coudn't go with transponders because of the tyres :(

have a in-car video, will post it today on youtube. sat in Nikhils city and those advans have crazy level of grip, he was at least 20% faster in corner, every corner i was thinking hes entering too fast but the tyres held up without much squel. car was a complete boat but tyres were awesome. did a 360* spin in his car, another first on track .

Just sticking tape - to prevent glass shards from falling on track in case they break.

Yeah I reached home at 1045ish - i took breaks of 10 mins or so at every toll naka as it was getting tiring. I hear the other bangy boys drove non-stop and reached home by 930ish (as mentioned by krishé)
I also got bogged down by the trucks drag racing on the highway at 5kmph

we had to tape our lights as a safety precaution - incase of a crash - the lights don't fall off and ruin the track for other cars

As a first timer, true experience of a life time.

Glad to meet Headers, Arka, Ranjit, Prasanna, Hari, 1 more Hari, Pravin, Bottle, Gansan, Nikhil, John, Manu, yzfrj,venom, propeller for the first time. Did not get to meet up with Aargee, Rahulkool, Arjun and others.

Farhan gave a very good briefing for the first timers. He detailed each and every curve and how to handle them. To do 3-4 laps slowly until we are comfortable with the track. What to do in case of getting stuck up in the track and things to avoid in the track etc.

By the time i managed to get the tapes stuck and was ready most of the cars were on the track already. So i started doing it alone initially. If a NHC Gold color was doing some crazy runs that would be me though i ensured i did not obstruct anyone and let everyone behind me to pass.

For the second run, i was looking for the help of a experienced person and Headers kindly came forward and and took me through each and every turn. We did the 3-4 laps in 1-3 gear and with a decent speed and i was immediately able to feel the difference when i did the laps alone and with Headers. Tyres squealing noise was very less and the curves were very comfortable. He took me through Entry, Apex, Exit and answered many of my silly questions. Thank You so much Headers.

Third run was with Nitrous in his mistress, what a drive it was. He handled the car and turns with such grace and elegance. He was able to brief while he was driving at such speed. Nitrous covered the racing lines, Entry, Apex and Exit points, he said to watch the car moving at every turn and i felt the car maintain a stright line touching the racing lines. A class driver with a good co-ordination. Thanks Nitrous for the experience.

Fourth Run was with Baghya. Another kind and brave hearted soul who came with me. Baghya is very experienced with the track and directed when to brake, accelerate, keep left, keep right and touching the racing lines perfectly. You should have driven the car in the track bakya.
One of the turns bakya was shouting 'brake' through his helmet, by the time i realised and reacted, it was late and i felt the rear wheels pulling in a different direction and we did a 360 degree turn running over the bushes with all the leaves and dust coming in. For a moment i thought the car was going to topple and was really scared for myself and for Bakya whom i called to help me. I apologized to Bakya but he was really cool. We then completed the lap and it took sometime for me to get back in mind. He immediately went with another person as navigator. Thanks Bakya.

Fifth run was by myself. I struggled again in the same place once where we did a 360 degree, but was able to do the next set of laps comfortably.

Sixth run was with the transponder. I did three laps and the best was 2:44.55, they said it was a good timing for a first timer and i felt really happy.

Some observations which i had:
1. The matiz was literally on 3 wheels in the curves.
2. the Red Palio was amazing, did neat turns.
3. Nikhil was racing through all the while. I saw him doing 360-degree's thrice and in spite of that he was able to maintain the timings. Great tyres there, Nikhil.
4. Manek was amazing in his 800
5. The mod esteems that were zipping through scared me a lot, because of their speed and my inexperience on the track. Their noise levels were very high as well.
6. Jassi's santro was very good and the exhaust was awesome.

Overall it was an amazingexperience, met a lots of fellow bhp-ans and an eventful day without any unfortunate events to anyone. Thank God.

I have taken some pics, will post them later from home.

ps: sorry for the long post.

I agree - I was struggling to keep up with this 3 wheeling maniac for a lap or two - just couldn't! it went really fast on 3 wheels on those long right handers - I could do only 80ish there
