How did I miss this forum??
i have been a passionate driver since 1997 and a lot of drives I undertake are more like campaigns because of the distance and durations involved. I remember my early drives in my first car, a Maruti Esteem and those were the days when planning 500 km per day was an ambitious target to today when a 1000km per day is not entirely outrageous.

My most recent drives ie 2016 have been
1. Chandigarh-Jaipur-Ahemadabad-Pune-Goa-Bidar-Bhopal-Chandigarh. With the last leg being from Bhopal to Delhi, a distance of almost 1100 km in a day. And mind you this was with my wife and kids in tow.
2. Chandigarh-Lucknow-Siliguri-Varanasi-Chandigarh. This was solo.
Both these drives were in my XUV500 W8 FWD Refresh.

Sorry. In Set No. 1 the last leg was Bhopal to Chandigarh not Delhi.
