Pretty decent result, IMO.
He placed 11th in Race2 and clocked a best lap of 2:06.518.
Shrivz, just wanted to say THANK YOU; that's one of the coolest rides to ever wear Team-BHP stickers

cars are alloted by lucky draw before each round.

Stickering is done after car has been alloted

Cyrus! Thank you. The seat is bolted on as per our requirement. The steering is telescopic and tilt adjustable. In-spite of mounting the seat on the last available hole, I just about have a 1/2 inch gap between my knee and the steering wheel.

I will post some pics of the race, would upload some more once i download that from my cam.

Congrats Shrivz, may be you might not be all that satisfied with your position, but i hope you would have enjoyed your race. I have a doubt, why was your left window a bit down? won't there be a lift when windows are opened? i know it would be hot inside, but with window glasses a bit down, it would reduce the speed is what i have learnt in Aero, Please correct me if i am wrong..
Hey! The VIP passes are on invitation only. Eager to see the remaining pics from your cam

I did enjoy my race! My windows were up in the first race, but I got thoroughly baked so had to take them down just a tad bit in order to let some air in.

Was at the MMSC track yesterday night and looked at all those nicely prepared cars standing in the pit area. I wish I was younger and eligible to apply!! Met the behind the scenes team who put in tremendous hard word to make sure that the cars are ready race to race. Salute to their spirit.

Rain at the track area had made it a bit slippery. Best of luck for the final round.

thanx rehaan,
those are definitely interesting.

The VW guys are attached cameras to some of our cars, lets see if we can get hold of some footage.
(i had 2 camera's on my car for race 2: one rear facing attached to the spoiler, and one on the dashboard capturing me)

The VW Team had 5 drift innovation cameras for on-board footage. These are available from Racetech

I was there on the same day for the last race. Too bad I had no idea who else was there.
