2ndly, my car is in Hubli and theres no way i'm gonna drive down 700+ kms for a track day.

If things work out, u might see a green Vtec on track this time. U know U can't force us into it, so hang on!!!

PS: V're more enthu about driving the Vtec on track than you guys are about watching it but, only if everything goes as planned.

Look shan , as friends who have been to track day and have seen what fun it is we thought we need to make u guys come to track to experience the same fun(everytime i try to rope more friends of mine so that they can have a go at the fun too) .. If u guys are so busy so be it .. We arent interested in seeing u guys drive , we are more interested in u guys finally doing some action than sitting behind the cozy comforts in front of ur comps and doing all the techy talks .. Knowing techy stuff is great , but its not everything .. Sitting here and asking did anyone manage to use heel toe is easy , get on track and try and ul know how difficult it is .. I tried in the baleno and found it tough , mainly bcoz of the postioning of the pedals .. Too far off ..

PS : Sorry to have sounded rude .. We know ur all are busy , but so are we .. It will be good if u guys can make this time around in the green VTEC ..

White Siena is owned by Mohnish, a friend of mine. That 1.2 was keeping up pretty well with all the other cars, mainly due to driver skill. He is on TBHP, but not too active.

Red Viva is one of the RAC guys.

V'l come when we can. Should be able to make it this time, but can't say for sure. If the thing was this weekend we'd have been there for sure. But 11th-12th might be a prob.

Will let yo'll know after the 6th.
