Hey People,

I have just switched lanes from http://groups.msn.com/FormulaIndia. My nick there was M5, and we had that MSN group going strong for almost a year. With 65 members and 10000 + posts, all of the FormulaInders were unanimous in voting for an exclusive domain/address where we could come and park our turbo-charged personalities. We have really had a strong following at FormulaIndia, and hope that team-bhp will garner an even bigger response. Having made some amazing friends from the msn group, I can only hope for more to come from team-bhp. *

I am from Bombay, and an Mba from Boston. Petrol has flowed in my veins since as far back as I can remember, and this passion for all things automotive has only grown stronger by the minute.

Currently I drive a C-Class and a custom-modified Mahindra 4x4. If you had to ask me to choose one of them, it would undoubtedly be the latter - I spent 4 months rebuilding her from an absolute mess and today, the results are for all to see. The Jeep really is an extension of my own self.

Among all the cars I lust after, the topmost are the Ferrari 288 GTO, the Mercedes Benz 560 SEL (W126 series), the Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VI and the Ferrari Enzo.

Take it easy,

GTO

Hi fellows!
Most of you already know me and some of you have even met me. Yes, I'm the same prankster who's been running around on Formulaindia. At 27, I'm probably the "old man" of this forum. Profession? Well, I'm screwing up the accounts and tax matters of an engineering firm. I love cars especially big and fast ones - this passion started since I was born. I drive a '96 Contessa currently. I would like to own a Jag XJS convertible, an XJ220 and a good old Ferrari F40 someday. Other cars I love are the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Jag XJR, Merc 560SEL & SEC and RR Silver Spirit.

Hey Guys!!!
I'm Deepankar but Dippy as all know me as. Working as a graphics designer in Mumbai and also writing for Bombay Times, Auto India, Jam and other mags as a hobby extending my passion for automobiles. Cars have been a part of my life since my very childhood. I have had the good fortune to experience the world's finest automobiles since I spent my childhood in Dubai. Cars ignite passion in me especially the exotics from Italy. Currently I drive a Zen and hope to own a Ferrari or a Lambo one fine day in my life. Other desirable cars for me include the Jaguar XJS, the 500 SEL, BMW M5, Range Rover SE to name few. Hey GTO really feels great to have our own den on the WWW. A big Thums Up for your efforts and I hope our dream to set up a Team bhp racing team comes true as well.

Cheers

Hey Normally Crazy

We hope that we can add to your knowledge in the days to come. And add to all those who love cars but don't have the right people to talk to, discuss about and learn from. This has been the endeavour of a few of us who have gone through the treacheries of other websites, messageboards for the past 2+ years for indian car enthusiasts, but have failed to be excited enough. Its been our dream since really long to have our own website and now finally we are able to do justice to our passion.

Frankly, we hope to make it India's most loved motor website and messageboard. All we need is support and torque from people like you to keep our wheels spinning.

Till then keep revvin

A warm welcome to Normally Crazy

Hey,
It's me....that same old, Vtec loving Shan2nu. I'm currently doin a course in Fine Arts at "Chitrakala Parishath", Blore.

I've always loved cars but, it wasn't until we bought the Vtec did i start taking interest in the technical aspect of it.

These 2.5 years with the Vtec has not only made me a better and more confident driver but, has also given me a sense of reponsility and maturity.

Regards...
Shan2nu
