Why dont you look at this:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...ml#post2351636 (Mumbai - Delhi Route Map directions)

Also please check out the timings to cross the Mumbai and Jaipur - Gurgaon stretch. Please avoid Jaipur - GGN in the evening / night.

Cheers!

Woah there, we are also driving down to Delhi. I'll be leaving Pune a bit earlier to and be with my family in Daman for Diwali, and would be (hopefully) leaving on 27th morning from there to Delhi. We are expecting to drive non-stop till we reach Delhi. Have to be there for Metallica. 6 Friends, 2 Drivers going to be a hell of a trip!

hi
avoid udaipur-ajmer-jaipur
Go via chittaurgarh(NH76) bhilwara kishengarh nasirabad and onto Jaipur(by passes all major towns)
it is longer but you will save fuel as it is a far better 4 laned(except for a bad stretch at kishangarh/udaipur)
I took this route in oct and nov 2010 and again in aug sep 2011.
In oct/nov i would not see a truck for 2/3 kms but now it is different.Truck traffic has gone up by more than 10 times and pretty heavy traffic.
AFAIK udaipur ajmer jaipur is 2 lane and you can imagine the difficulties if you are stuck behind a long trailer
Ample places to eat.
hope this helps
regards
PS if you are staying in Ahmedabad and if you like sherbet try,time permitting, and go to Motumal Tanumal.Best in india.Umpteen flavours to carry back home for hot summer days

Killer plan, Ninja. I love the rush one gets out of driving long distances at a stretch. Add to that the Metallica concert and F1 Grand Prix. When you are returning back, just make sure the head banging and fist thumping is well within control!

I am no expert on the GQ route, so I have nothing to add to these great suggestions.

Nice! We seem to have an almost similar plan of action but with minor changes.

I'm going to leave Pune Tuesday night, and stopover at a friend's place in Mumbai. He'll be joining me in his car uptil Ahmedabad where we'll be put up for Diwali - we'll be leaving on 27th morning for Diwali too!

Thanks! But Ahmedabad means home food - so doubt if I'll have time for anything else!

For me the drive is of more importance than the race or concert!

Agree on the rush part - especially when you have the free time to stop anywhere & do whatever you want - that makes your day completely!


Q to all - once the trip starts, should I be uploading pics here or on my Vento thread?

Nitinjalli

It is not food. It is sherbet bottles like sold by kissan.
Far better option than having carbonated soft drinks

Thanks guys. The trip was excellent - reached Delhi without any issues on the road. The GQ is a dream to drive - except for a bad patch outside Delhi (due to constructions) & last 100 kms before Gurgaon (bad roads & road expansions), the entire stretch is a dream to drive.

Will be putting up a detailed travelogue once I am back.

Concert was a dud - but the F1 made up for it. We got a world class circuit set up out here - it's a must for every indian F1 fan!
