As I was about to stop the car before the barricade, I saw that the gate on the left side which leads staright into the track was open & to my luck, the Security was asking me to turn into that gate. My heart skipped a few beats as I turned and got on to the race track.

This is the gate I am talking about.

Children's Day Special : Treat with the Lambos, Meet the Mighty Bulls-59629d1223983472tjktyresnrcmmscsomepicsp9170120.jpg

I revved the esteem & it screamed on the track & swung into the pit lane, I knew I could be in danger if a speeding Lambo had come along that time. As I came into the pits, an European lady was furiously waving & chasing after my car. I rolled down the window &

she shouted "How did you get here ?"
I said : "Through the open gate by the side."
She : "Why ?"
I : "I came to see the track and the main driveway was blocked & I was directed through this gate."
She : "This is DANGEROUS. You could have been killed."
I : " I am sorry, You should keep that gate closed"
She : "Ok, in that case, do you want to drive out now ?"
I :" No, not right now, I want to see the cars."
She: "Ok, you get inside & stay there, keep your doors locked & don't let the kids out."
I: "would be very happy to, thanks."
She: Nodding her head sideways and frantically talking to someone on the wireless " Get that damn gate closed."

Did I say that all this happened while the esteem was parked right beside those awesome shining Lambos ? I did not know where to look while addressing that lady.

Wow! Now we were in.

@Benny, the sad part is I did take my camera, forgot to pick up the batteries for it on the way. I was looking for my rechargeable batteries & could not find it, so I planned to pick up duracells on the way. I regretted that all day & still.

Thats laughable, though it was scary. Share more pics and video too.

I am sorry you have to twist your neck to see this first video, again very very poor quality due to the ancient camphone.

Why two threads on the same topic?

Wow, esteem_lover, some Childrens' day treat for your kids

I am sure this would be one of their most treasured moments all their life.

You bet they did, Mahendra. They are still in a daze talking non stop about that.

It was fun watching the Lambos powerslide in the water.

V12 it has to be, though they were fantastic with the V10s.
I am not sure if these were V10s or V12s though.

Nice treat for the kids there. What a way to celebrate Children's Day!
And as for the engines, all are V10s producing near about 560 BHP as the name of the cars (LP 560-4) suggest.

So we waited just outside the pits for a while when one of the organisers presumed that we were also invitees & called us in. This was a golden opportunity, but then I did not want to push my luck, hence just declined & climbed on to the tower instead. Watched all the action from the tower for the next 45 mins.

Around 4.30, the team started packing up, they were seen raising their glasses, probably sold one that day. The Corollas & the Innovas transported them out of the track. Once they were gone, we were left alone with these magnificent machines, all parked in the bays. They were left with a man & his team of 5-7 mechs/labourers. They were pretty ok, did not object to us hanging on there.

Saw another beauty there.

The regn Number of the B tells who was among the ' prospective customer' list. I thought they already had one in their stable.
