I am a car buff and I am glad that my son introduced me to this web site and for the last few days it is fun reading your experiences.

I am a ralliest and a drag participant during the years of 1978 to 83. Winning K 1000 in 1982 was the high point. Had the privialage of rallying with some greats like Karthikean, Gautham Kaddam, Vicky Chandook, Bharat Parekh, Subash Chandra, Dr. Sabu, Dayanand Mandrake.

I have a son Nikhil who is a " CAR KNOWLEDGE BANK" . He amazes me with his knowledge and I now realise that this web site is one such link that enchances his real time knowledge on cars and its maintaince.

I hope to interact with you guys, and have good exchanges and fun.

I strongly belive that Quality is the first word and there is nothing known as 99% . It is 100% or it is not correct. This I have learnt the hard way. Though it is difficult to follow in India, I am trying my best.

Let us start the exchanges.

Ravi.

Welcome Sir! People who raced/rallyed in the early 80s were our boyhood heroes and the Rally Fiats were our ultimate dream machines!

Welcome to Team BHP and have a great time!

No, I am not Ravi Prakash. I have done a few rallies with Dr Ravi though, including my last K1000 in 1984.

I am in Bangalore. Jayanagar.
