Might not qualify for this thread as it was not me alone driving. The car is my '07 Civic.

Looks like we are not talking about the complete trip here but the single continuous drive. The longest I have done so far I guess should be 1160+ kms from Vapi to my place in Sarjapura road, Bangalore. I started around 12 noon from Vapi, wasted about 2.5-3 hours in Mumbai to cross the town and got home at around 7-7.30 in the morning next day, I slowed down a bit after witnessing a horrible accident and took too many breaks in the later part of the journey.

Thanks to http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/members/hvkumar.html

Edit: This one is inspiring ~ http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...it-second.html (Solo drive Chennai-Mumbai-Chennai, A decision made in split second)

There is one more travelogue written on the difficulties faced in an attempt to cover Mumbai-Chennai by a member...that one is also very impressive, but could not find those links.

The second longest one was from Goa to Udaipur (1400 KM), and the third one was from sonipat to Daman (1350KM). Both of these two were during my goa trip in Dec.2009. (Verna)

I have driven Pun - Blr a few times & IIRC it was less than 900 Kms. Not sure it would add so much even going from far ends of both cities. Which route did you take?

Longest Road Trip :
Golden Quadrilateral circuit starting from Bangalore - ~6200 Kms

Longest Drive (single driver):
Mehsana- Palanpur-Abu Road-Udaipur-Jaipur-Gurgaon-Delhi-Agra-Kanpur-Varanasi - 1750 kms in 31 hours.

We started form Mehsana around 11:30am and were in Varanasi next evening at 6:30pm. This was never planned and it just happened due to various reasons during the GQ Drive.

Note:Mehsana-Abu Road doesn't fall in the GQ but we wanted to take this route for fun.

All of these above drives were done in my WagonR that has now clocked 186,000 kms!

The longest drive We did (in terms of time,effort & enjoyment) was in 2008 Diwali. Self driving & wife acting as navigator.

Pune - Karwar nonstop. The drive through Kali river valley was the highlight of this stretch.
Karvar to Udipi via Gokarna Murdeshwar Kollur & Marvantha Beach.
Udipi - Shringeri-Kuderumukh-Hornadu-Mangalore. One of the most scenic drives I have done. Went past Samurai's famous test points in Agumbe ghat!!.
Mangalore-Dharmasthala-Kuke Subramaniam-Madkeri.
Madkeri-Yellapur with a lot of off the track places thrown in.(Longest drive 5.30am to 10.30 pm!)
Yellapur-Gokak-Pune.

Total distance was a shade over 2800 kms. But it was a total hoot. Car was Santro AT.
