everyday i take out my car ...i see someone or the other racing on the ring road ...BTw i have seen your driving when we had gone to krishnagiri...all i can say is that you were really lucky to be alive
i have to say this that i wholly agree with satya on this....no offence...

it is just the impulsive behaviour that causes accidents.....keeping a cool head takes you a long way..

godfather...it was a damn brave and decent thing to take the guy to the hospital and pay for the damages..but what were you thinking??? you are faster that all those guys put together any day....then why did you have to get all charged up by one little finger?????

What does that tell u ???

PS : If u are referring to that culvert incident , then let me remind u that i wasnt the one driving then ..

Rahul, You could have stopped this guy and confronted him for having banged your car rather than falling in his trap by racing with him.

Secondly, i feel sad that you met with an accident in your new baby. 5 years is a lot of experience but in the 7 years of my driving experience and with lacs of kms under my belt without a single accident but many close shaves i have realised that it just takes 1 silly mistake either by you or the other guy you are racing with and it can prove fatal to either of you guys or some innocent guy on the city street. I too am your age and i know how it feels when some crappy jack-a** comes your way instigating you for a race but then i guess common sense should prevail but i know "its easier said than done"

Be safe rahul, don't take it too personal coz its just an advise a fellow "Baleno freak" would like to give you. And howz your car now? Would like to wish you luck for the speedrun. Take car mate.

Cheers

I think we all know how strictly people stick to one-way rule in Bangalore, especially after 9PM.

This is coming closer to personal attack. Cool down.

There is no real excuse for racing in city streets, I suggest you stop making any and move on.

I'm not quoting any of the above posts as this would get complicated.

1. McLaren - racing on public streets is not something on needs to advertise. that said appology accpeted. Howevr I understand this was not your first time (racing on public roads) please try to make it your last.

2. RX - I dont see anyone giving Samurai a hard time. Lord knows he can take car of himself.

3. Prince - how many lac KM in 7 years? 1 lac KM = 40km per day everyday for 7 years with no holidays. :-)

4. Godfather - Thanks for sharing and that was brave of you to stop and take the man to a hospital.

India is going through growing pains - our car/km ratio has gotten terribly skewed. I am sorry that the younger amoust you have to deal with this (gone are the days of carefree drives with barely enough traffic to warrant traffic lights) but the best was to do is to practive defensive driving even if it goes against your natural instincts.

Take a page out of Juan Manuel Fangio's book guys.http://www.allamericanracers.com/jmf.html
"When he first drove a grand prix car, Fangio was 38, an age at which many of today’s F1 stars have retired yet Jean Manuel Fangio who won 47% of all his GPs. Jim Clark comes second with 35%. Michael Schumacher won 32%"

I normally revv hard and pretend to overtake the instigator.. and when he speeds up and goes ... then I quietly go at my own pace.. The trick is to turn the tables on him and push him hard.. but not push ourselves too hard.

hey godfather ,
that was really unlucky that you had to suffer because of the other guy ...but very nice of you that you took care of the biker instead of running away .
nothing personal here ,but i feel people who race on the public roads should be lynched....no excuses for that

Hey man!
You sounds really cool! But needs an extra pack of ice packs! (Jokin)

Yes, There're plenty of crazy guys out there. They just get heavy on their heads and starts doing all the funny stuff on the road. It seems that Zen guy should be really happy if he saw you in accident. Ya, that's how bad these morons are!

Anyway I praise you for keeping your temper in control to max and helping out the poor victim after the knock. Most people like to fly away from the scene especially in a similar situation you were in.

Dude! Let's race in Speed RUN!
