1Day, the experienced/senior track drivers go shotgun with the newbies on the track to teach the basics of line, apex, etc.
We don't let them loose like headless chickens on the track. Don't worry
In addition to this, there are also track videos of pro racing drivers, available on youtube

It was awesome fun yesterday. I did about 30-35 laps & almost emptied a tank of fuel. Surprising to see that the michelins are holding up quite well. My best time on the stopwatch was around 2:27... Happy with that results (My previous best was 2:29). Rahul was kind enough to sit along with me and give a couple of tips, it certainly helped. Thnks buddy.

It was good to meet all you guys... The track is free again on 3rd and 24th Oct, according to Mr. Sheshadri.

Cheers!

Yupp, I agree to - Atleast 50 Laps each!!. In the meanwhile my "mistress" will be ready and running as the owner is busy doing the "mods"

And lemme get a pressure gauge and a compressor - we can try the different effects of tire pressure too!

Gautham, care to explain the first pics {of me doing doughnuts on LH's car}

First bring the Gypsy and drive it on track.
Else don't comment

Thanks for the crash course on brakes

Brake update :

Brakes are good. It was a bit smelly for a lap. Once it got heated up it was better. Now I can stop. I still feel the need for a better rotor (for track) as I'm braking very late now and wants even more braking power.

On the road brakes are just awesome.
I had to do 2 panic braking till now, no fuss no drama car just slows down.
No trye screech nothing. Love it.

I'm just imagining what deadly combination this + Tarox would be.
