Hey guys, these are really awesome photos and videos. Mine are not half as good! I do have a few candid pics of DC, but when you got vids, who needs photos? :-D

BTW, did anyone catch his reply to what car he drove on the Germany autobahn when he drove his fastest?

Yes. He said it was a Mercedes AMG. Was it you who asked that question about the fastest he had done in a non race car and where?

Read that the organizers are going to pay with caution deposit of around 14 lakhs, for the speeding ticket that DC got?

Don't believe everything you read. There are great spin masters at work behind the scenes.

Possible, thought i didn't notice it. Things with the car were not running perfect - probably due to the heat. (Did you notice the blowers they put on the car as soon as it stopped? - in addition to the existing dry ice)

Hey, that's too bad man! There was a thread about this event in the meet section but not too many members replied there. There were tons of TBHPians present, but i only ran into a few (Salil_2001, Flyingspur, kunal817, dippy, jitu, etc). Didn't know / get to meet Gogi, Viper, Tejas, you etc

Oh, thanks! Yes, that was me. :-) A bimbette question, was it?

BTW, they were just not giving me the mic, so I just kinda shouted out the question kneeling at the front. And then they thrust the mic at my face. LOL.

Funny because I was right next to you. I had asked question about the crash at the pitlane entrance.

I was looking out for familiar faces Rehaan but i was mostly keeping out of the direct sunshine for i have developed a skin allergy. Would you believe it im allergic to the Sun??!! Its true.

Thanks Manas for giving us the play by play details. Wish someone would have known you were outside, im sure one person could have been managed to be bought in. Anyways, theres always a next time.

Didi anyone notice Dippy asking DC the proverbial question albeit in a hushed tone....
Dippy:" Er...David, G'day mate....er.... main chaloon??"

Really? Wow, nice coincidence. I remember your question, and I thought at that time, "Here's a total F1 junkie!" LOL.

Pity there wasn't an informal TBHP meet though. There would have been a good number of people I think, judging by the posts here!

A friend of mine captured David Coulthard going flat out on the sea link! Please turn up your speaker volume.

Does anyone have the official aerial video of the event? Rehaan and Dippy, didn't you guys take any pictures or videos?

that reminded me of a funny incident a couple of years ago (Dippy, Viddy and Ishan will remember this). I came to a car show (at the Bandra Kurla complex) with my 5 year old son and his friend. We were standing right next to the Speed Car and I lost the kids. Imgaine my chargrain when I saw my son had managed to get into the car and his friend was standing on the engine cowl.
