I have kept my copy safely kept in a drawer and check it everyday- there is a scoop on the show and there is a mention of oath of secrecy for which they cant reveal all , but promised a lot of fun and I guess mind boggling stuffs. I have applied for 1 day off on 26th ( last day, as I hope to get some good bargains on the last day) unless, they offer mouth watering quotes on day 1 itself. 22nd - I ll be there in second half as I guess first half will be half ready only.And of course, Saturday Sunday are mine and I wont miss any cricket match at all!

And yes I am sure, my Nov issue will get me a free entry on day 1( first visit) but would like to know, does it permit me for multiple entries.

I just hope , I am not giving an idea to organisers by writing this- they should not put a mark or something on the magazine to know second time or thrid time visitors. So organisers and Autocar guys, please, lets have fun. As it is a rare event that happens in India for auto enthusiasts- else at least have mutliple entry passes as an option.
!!

Default Official Statement

Here is a press release that is out to the media, might as well read it here first.

Quote:
At the Autocar Performance Show 2007, to be held at the Bandra Kurla Complex from the 22nd November to the 26th November, JBL® will be having an event to remember.

The performance show is co-sponsored by JBL and the entire entrance area (a massive 9000 square feet) will host what JBL calls “The Summer Carnival” and the theme? Absolutely orange and complete fun.

The area will be completely covered in the orange brand colours and will feature

• 9000 square feet of bright orange carpeting
• Orange based games – like JBL wheel of fortune, spot quizzes and many more fun things
• Entertainment – Tattoo artists, jugglers, dancers, jam bands, performances,
• Orange Candy Floss to be given away free to visitors
• Orange(schezwan) Popcorn to be given away free to visitors
• International Models - showgirls on showcars
• Live DJ
• Lights, laser and sound performances
• Loads of prizes to be won – lots of JBL speakers, JBL headphones, JBL Tee Shirts, a Gibson Electric Guitar
• Live musician Jam sessions with electric guitars and a chance to play the Gibson Flying Vee and Les Paul limited edition guitars
• Some of the latest JBL multimedia gadgets – a chance to get up close and personal with the future.
• Live Demos of JBL headphones
• A volleyball court where you can play a fun game with your friends (provided the staff from JBL stops playing first)

There are entry forms to the Mr.JBL and Miss JBL contest, a personality contest which will be held on Sunday with prizes such as a JBL car audio speaker system, JBL iPod docks, JBL Headphones and more.

Apart from the fun and entertainment – JBL will launch the “Evil Twins” – a pair of 2-door Suzuki Swifts, completely pimped up with 10,000W sheer power. The car has only 2 seats for the driver and passenger, the rest is all jaw dropping ICE.

There will also be other rocking show cars – Honda CRV, Hyundai Verna and a Mitsubishi Lancer that serve no other purpose but to be mobile discotheques, fitted out with some absolutely crazy JBL audio systems.

There will be fun photo opportunities (to be won at the wheel of fortune) with the cars and the pretty women.

Pimped cars, pretty women, great music - Here’s your chance to feel like you starred in “The Fast & the Furious” and drive your friends crazy with envy. So dress sharp and don’t forget to get your camera for this one. See you there.

JBL is a trademark of Harman International Industries, Incorporated, registered in the United States and/or other countries.
JBL is represented in India by Sahil International

Autocar and Autocar Performance show are trademarks of Haymarket SAC Publishing (India) Pvt. Ltd

Gibson is a trademark of Gibson Guitar Corp, USA
I hope this answers all the questions in your head. I will be there myself all 5 days of the show. If you need any assistance or need to sit in a car that is closed to the public, look for me. I will arrange that or perhaps a quick photo with some pretty girl and a car.

However Monday will have no performances and no women.

Cheers and Enjoy.
