fellas ,

this happened in nov 2003. had been to khargar as i heard that drags were taking place. went there , watched the drag and then this happens.....

1.30 am - start off from khargar ...slowly cross belapur and reach the start of the palm beach road near the nri complex..my frnd chetan gets a brainwave...says y dont we try and launch like we r in a drag ..i say ok, stuff metallica into the pioneer mp3 player and just as am abt to launch ...i brake ...see an indica growing huge in the rear view mirror fast!!!!

we decide to let the guy pass and take off after him...he whoozes past arnd 120 kmph and maaan i let go my ikon...the growl is delicious .....faster and faster ...the indica accelerates and i redline the ikon and floor it....the road is twisty in parts ...i come along side( 4th gear ) the speedo showing 130 ..the guy is trying his best ....i downshift to 3 and floor it and scream off the speedo shows 155 ...pooof the indica is dust .....but then we reach civilisation(vashi) .....i slow down ..the indica comes alongside ..shake of hands , a thumbs up and he's off......while chetan n me ....we are in a trance of adrenalaine rush and metallica !!

dint know just watching a drag cud have *effect like this.

cheers

Tey say the most dangerous part of a drag meet (or any racing event) is at the end of the day when everyone goes home, coz then they all drive like they're the next Schumi!

I'm sure anyone who was there at the drag will vouch for that!

Right said Rtech

One does feel the after effects of a drag. Let alone the drag .. even after I watch the Grand Prix on big screen I get into the mood , I feel as if I've taken Schumi pills and start racing right from Nariman Point to home. I guess the excitement does get to you most of the times

Its like MAIN BHI SCHUMACHER

Cheers
