Oops sorry guys. I just came back from lunch and saw my post. The thing is when I did a preview of the post I saw the images displayed properly. So I posted confidently and went out.

Mods: Can you please tell me whats wrong with the attachement. I have resized the size as required and referred in the post http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/announ...-team-bhp.html (Uploading photographs directly to Team-BHP)


2the max - Is this your Swift?

Guys I am trying to post the pictures again in this thread.

Its great to meet you all. I had the privileage to meet a few of the chennai TBHP members but was not able to interact with most of the bangalore guys.

@ raj barcode - I saw a Debadged Elantra in the pits and I hope it belongs top you. Thats a neatly maintained elantra and you have inspired me to go for a debadged setup (most of logos were vandalised anyway )

Back to the P&P session. I started from home at 10:40 and was hoping to meet Riju, Parakeath and Praveen(Mi10) on the way, but was not able to meet the group. I picked up my friend just after poonamalle and continued my drive all the way to Irukatukottai in my puny little Zen. Here a picture fo my Zen.

MMST Pay & Practice - 2012-tbhp-pay-practice-029-myride.jpg

There have been a lot of talks going on about the race esteems, here is a pic of the one without the bonnet playing catch up with another modded esteem.

MMST Pay & Practice - 2012-tbhp-pay-practice-110-esteems.jpg

Now the following pictures are taken from the C block tower (Media tower) from the 2nd floor. I tried to zoom all the way to the back of the track and some of the photos were shot with 48X maginification. Please excuse for the grainy pics.

Here is the photos of action happening on track
Riju in action:

Esteem from bangalore (TBHPian please identify your self. Your lines were great towards the last few laps)
MMST Pay & Practice - 2012-tbhp-pay-practice-019.jpg

Here is a OHC in action:
MMST Pay & Practice - 2012-tbhp-pay-practice-039.jpg

The Skoda Octavia was burning the rubbers on track.

Now for spinouts:

MMST Pay & Practice - 2012-tbhp-pay-practice-050-spinouts.jpg

Now for breakdown snap of Esteem: I believe the vehicle belongs to Esteem_lover. please correct me if I am wrong

MMST Pay & Practice - 2012-tbhp-pay-practice-126-breakdown.jpg


Due to personal commitments i had to reach chennai by 4:30, so me and my friend started at 3 PM from the tracks.

Now some of the things that I missed on track

1. I didnot take my ride on the track (wifey reads TBHP and she knew the P&P happening on track so was not able to bluff around)
2. Didnt go on trakcs with any of the TBHPian as everyone were trying to familiarize with the track settings
3. Didnt get a chance to see the Mistress in action (Nitrous do you have any video of the mistress ripping the tarmac)
4. Most of all I missed the Photo shoot
5. Missed the next race day announcement. Guys can any one share that info please.

Yep, the first Fiesta is mine. Thanks. I think I had an expression similar to your wife's inside my helmet.

This Skoda was doing some pretty good laps though it was never timed. I see what appears to be a silver Fiesta in one of the pics, though I don't remember seeing one that day. The last pic is my car. I got two pics now. Yay.

Goutham I didnt have the oppertunity to meet you in person, but next time when you come for the meet i will make it a point to meet you. I would say that the way you were making your vehicle hold the line should have taken the toll on your tyres for sure. I always had fun watching your car shooting out of the last turn with your tyres begging to be released from the stress the vehicle exerts. Great driving buddy.

GreaseMonk, can you please identify your photo so that I can find out your car. Yourt profile says that you own a fiesta and the one photo of Fiesta that I posted was that of Gilead.

The greenish-grey fiesta is mine. I was parked in one of the last few stalls in the pit lane since I had arrived during the motorcycle session in the morning and they didnt want a car in the first few stalls. Needless to say, by the time the car session had begun I was pretty pooped and ended up just sitting in the pits when not on the track instead of mingling with fellow BHP-ians.

Elantra, I am in the 14th photo from the top with 3 cars in the foreground: Manek's 800, a beige OHC and my greenish-grey Fiesta.

It was nice seeing you after a long time, Hari.
I was helping out a few BHPians who were first timers on the track. So, I got onto the track only after 3.

It belonged to a friend of mine (not on team-bhp) and I hope it was not doing 'nutty' stuff.
Nope, but I do have a video. I'll upload it shortly.
White Octy with TN plates ?
