Hey guys,

Well NC, Stratos, RJK, F50, Salil, my friend ad & me made it there yesterday. i left kemps corner at 820pm and got there at 1030pm coz of the ridiculous traffic jam at mahim, so be warned!

The track was really awesome!! very big..... however there was a huge difference between karts, so if you ever go there try out a couple of different karts if you can.

cheers

Hey man.... what makes you say that??
I actually didnt scrape my car anywhere.....BUT the next night when my dad was driving me to the airport there was this HUGE hole on the road and i tried to warn him...but too late... however didnt notice any damage in the 10seconds that i looked at the car before trying to catch my flight!

hey guys,
The track sure has an awesome layout, with great chicanes and a nice start finish straight, that can be taken flat out almost halfway till the 2nd corner(only in falcon karts). The surface material is imported and is said to be upto international standards and one can feel the difference immediately. Lots more grip on the circuit, and nice kerbs to ride over too. If i had one complaint about the facilities on offer, it is that although they house an outlet of Just Around The Corner, they always have a shortage of food, which is wierd, considering the central kitchen for MARS(owners of JATC) is right behind the track. The karts start of with 6.5 bhp falcon karts...going upto 18 bhp mondiales and 28 bhp rotax karts. But to the general public, the falcons are the only ones available till now. My 1st visit to the track was a couple of weeks before this team bhp meet, where i clocked in a fastest of 43.3 secs. This time around, a better drive and understanding of the track, i cut down my laptime to 40.3 seconds, missing out on breaking into the top 10 by just 0.16 of a second. Plan to start practising there once in a while, so one can represent team-bhp on the top 10 board.

Tell me dude how to take those hair pin bends, i seem to loose all my time over those two bends and everytime i do oversteer that means i do carry a bit more speed than needed.
