Thumbs up Team BHP in London Local Media - UPDATED NOW WITH ARTICLE



Last monday, like most other days, I picked up a free copy of Metro before I got onto the underground, for my 30min commute to work. As usual I started from the sports page and way working my way to the front page.

For a bit of background, Metro is a tabloid, distributed free of charge at all underground stations. Not a very serious newspaper, but helps keep you amused and occupied during the journey and stops you from staring at strangers. For an outsider, like myself, it helps get a perspective of life in London/ UK by talking about burning issues, local crime scene, etc. ;-)

Anyway, on Mondays Metro does a page on automobiles. I was quite surprised to see the head line on the Auto Page as "my other car is a fiesta" and a big picture of a red Ikon and a jeep looking like Mahindra Classic on Indian looking roads. Somewhere on the page, the text "team bhp" caught my eye and I HAD TO READ ON!!!

The story went on about the Mumbai Petrol heads "rallying" through Mumbai Marine Drive and a certain Mr. Rush egging folks on for another drive and the emerging automobile scene in India and the choice of cars and what not.

It felt really good to read about Team BHP out here in the local media, and made me proud to be a Team-BHPian!!

GOOD SHOW GTO and Team BHP :-)

Will try to scan the article and post it.

Holy Cow! That is AWESOME! The Team-BHP culture IS spreading across the globe. Our community is most representive of the emerging Indian car enthusiast. Its a fantastic culture. A Family that is just so close knit. Reading on Rudras outburst (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/collec...tle-time.html), Rtechs gratitude (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...thank-you.html (Thank you.)) among many others only strengthens this fact. Thank you BHPians for making Team-BHP what it is today.

Rahul, I eagerly await the scanned article.

That should be GTA no? GTO stands for Gran Turismo Omologato which means a grand touring vehicle,in Sonia-speak. (Our super admin must be referring to his beloved CJ ).
