Completely agree with the statement nikhil and note that he is a rally guy driving on track for first time.

My observation after riding shotgun with him...
- doesn't take car smoothly on corners.
- Always enters panic situation.
- But one thing i have to appreciate is he has CONTROL over the car as what ever panic situation he enters can come out of it.

All is excused as he is a newbie.

This guy has talent with those crappy tyres he was able to keep up with those rally esteems which did 2.09 min wonder what would he had done if he had advan neovas.

Mad Manek is actually capable of better timings, I know that for sure. He must have been stressed out by the time the transponders came out.

Vijay, my car was totally under prepared. Even the previous night I was stranded in a traffic signal. My fuel pump relay had a mind of it's own, works sometimes, stops sometimes. Could not find a replacement in the market. But, I don't know why it overheated. Did not have the time to check it out still.

Nikhil, would have loved to meet you and a number of other bangy boys, my kids took my time. Want to ride shotgun with you next time.

@ Jassi, like everyone said, your santro sounded very sweet.

@ jagfx, my kids want to see your car, maybe next time.

Thanks, Gilead! The bigger one is mine and the little one aargee's.

BTW which Bangy boy was driving that red Matiz? It sounds really nice in the video! Another nice exhaust is that blue car (Fiesta?). Is that the one with the Titanium end can?

Thanks Hari, you really made up my day man. (There goes the allowed claps for you)

With all the build up i gave at home, without a picture it was not worth it. Now i have one pic to show off.

Will PM you my email, please send the photo.

I was actually looking for you! I didnt realise you were at the track until much later when someone told me you were the guy in the Green Esteem! Been seeing your posts for quite a while and missed meeting you :(

Cant wait for the next track day, as this one was slightly disappointing for me.
Had an electrical/electronics problem and the car kept switching off on the track. and then later on for a while the car was not revving beyond 4.5k rpm..

Thanks a lot sriraj for all the support and help when the car was acting up. And ofcourse hrishi for the pick up and drop service around the track in his petrol indica. He was really squeezing every bit of juice from that motor.

I dont even remeber how many times i disconnected and reconnected the battery trying to reset the ecm. i actually had a 10 size spanner in my pocket all day.

But i did manage to get a few "ok" laps when the car was behaving itself. dint time myself, but i did feel i was doing better times than the previous trackday.

Switching to o.e size tyres has improved the overall feel and handling of my car.

Thanks to the chennai boys for organising. sadly didnt get to meet /chat up with many of them.

Sat shotgun with raj ks in cedia ,really like the way the car handled, very agile.

Nikhil's timing by the end of the day was impressive . he had done a 2.29 when i was sitting shotgun with him.

Sathee's car has the titanium exhaust, but mine sounds sweet after 3K RPM as well. I was not able to figure out which of the two blue Fiestas passed by in your video.

Your car exhaust can be heard in the video that was shot from inside the Palio. Maybe you missed it.

Does anyone have any more videos? arjunrudra, you got any?

Please don't apologize buddy. We are all on the same boat here.
We are learning our lines and trying to push one step at a time.
Most of us had a blast, so that's all it matters.
I went into the pits after following the octy for a lap. I don't have enough grunt to pass him but he wasn't fast enough to leave me in the dust. In the video I lost the tail end taking c10 was coming in waaaaay fast trying to play catch-up, luckily I was able to get the shown back on the track.

Of course you did let me pass. You car has twice the power and even if you had feathered the gas I would't be able to pass. Thank you it was the only way for me to "analyze" how I was screwing up. Next time I really need to get a "proper" cam. This was from mobile cam.

Yup. As most of us commented those chaps. Absolutely daft. He had no room still he kept coming. I lifted off and the moved to make room else he might have given a nasty surprise to the octy probably by trying to go around it.

No way man. That guy is just keeps on going. He was the only reason I was able to do my best time for the day. I was right behind him. He gave me room and I was able to pass, only to be pushed to the max. I snapped and I spun. This was the closing laps near 5pm, So there is Manek for you.

Stressed on a lap, that too Manek ?
No way....!

Propeller got pushed around on his crdi by Manek. I have a video I was riding shotgun with propeller will post it soon.
