I am sorry the pics are very poor quality as I had to rely on my old Nokia 5310. I am a little busy right now, so the story & more pics will follow.
cheers

As Nitrous already explained, it was an invite only event where some of the prospective customers only had been invited to drive & feel the great car.

Can we expect a Lambo thread in Ownership reviews soon?

Nitrous told me his experiences at the track on Friday night. I was shocked; at the same time I felt that I should give it a try. I cannot be so near & yet so far, least of all I did not want to die wondering. But then I did not also want to disappoint the kids. They love the Lamborghinis, one has a Gallardo 1:24 & the other has a Murcielago 1:32 and they treasure these 2 cars. Saturday morning (Nov.14th ), I was in two minds, should I take them & risk the disappointment & probably the humiliation or should I always keep wondering what would have happened.


Living in India, we always face a lot of disappointments & humiliation, so I decided, even if we do, this will be a learning experience for the kids. I explained the situation to them & I can tell you that they only looked at the positive side of it. They were darned sure they will get close to their beloved cars. So we started off around 2.30p. The track is 22 kms from my house on a straight road. You can say I live on the same road as the race track. I can sense the excitement in their eyes. Normally this kind of a drive would be very noisy, but there was silence in the car as the kids were trying to take in the moment. I felt like a kid myself.


So we turned into the MMSC gate and started the long drive into the parking lot. Just a few metres into the drive, I saw a roadblock and a Security Guard standing right beside it. I feared the worst, now is the moment I dreaded. All this effort & the false excitement induced into the kids.

Very very true suman. They have not seen a lambo in flesh, this was the first time.
