Propensity to do lot of miles.
  1. 450 Miles in 8 Hours
  2. 500 Miles in a day
  3. 1600 Kms in 3 days
  4. Leisurely 2300 Kms in 10 days. (Holiday break)
Hence the nick, thought it to be most appropriate

Its a nick i have been using ever since i started using Internet, Hotmail,yahoo everywhere i have the same nick. Came across this site when was searching information about my first car. Did not know that it would end up becoming my identity in this Family spread all across India.

But its become famous now, So i dont mind it, Even my car's Wind shield carries a sticker with this nick

This was the name I used in one of BBC Five live site for
formula one discussion. The user I wanted was PetrolHead but since it was not available settled with MotorBreating.

Default Downsouth

I might offend a few folks here, I am maried to a punjabi, from POK kashmir migrated to mumbai after the partition. So when ever I used to visit her folks/relatives they used to pull my leg asking me if I was a Madrasi, I used to get pissed off but would smile it away explaining I was from Bangalore. So I coined the word downsouth, it suggests from the south of India.

Er... the last note is redundant, because if you were a Bengali,
your first name would be Vinay, and last name Das !
