Hi Guyz I would like to participate in the Track day. Hey Sideways thanks for calling up 'n updating me. I would bring my Ford Ikon 1.3. I'll be there for both the days.

Last time participants-Did the baleno face extensive tire wear? I'll be thrown out of my house if I rip the tire tread in 2 days

Depends on how you drive. I was responsible for a full 50% of the wear, due to my driving antics. If you don't try F1-ing it, your wear should be reasonable... how old are your tyres anyway?

did the baleno face excessive tyre wear ?? yes it did .. But if u ease it out on a few corners and drive a bit on straight roads before u get home u might just be safe ..

I agree. This is a great start...

Why don't you Mumbai guys try and make it? Bunch of you hop into 2 cars and come down? Or even ship the cars?

Well, your question has been answered by the bangalore boys. Would suggest you take it easy around the corners. Try and pick up a set of second hand tyres. Should be able to sort your problem.

You will need to pick up only two tyres for the front. Rear tyres wont ware much.
