Don't know who all are going for it yet, but I'm sure the 458 will be

I hope no one has an "issue" on the expressway though. Hope everyone drives safe. Will be quite a sight especially in the tunnels

"Issues"? 2 weeks back on the expressway a Boy with a Z4 ran thru the centre on to the other side and over 3 ladies cutting shrubs!!
Many of the club boys do the expressway trips very often. Its just that with competition around the adrenaline flow muliplies. They must have set rules wherein timing should be on basis of starts every 3 minutes, so no overtaking each other, if its a competitive affair. Otherwise they are largely a responsible lot. Maybe no one below 30 allowed. This is going to be exiting.

SSP, Please let us know of the schedule so we can get a glimpse of the cars on the way or at your halt points. It would be futile to drive on the expressway and hope to see them as they would just zoom past with no hope of us catching up in our daily practical cars. Thanks

There is no group drive from the city to Panvel. Everyone is gathering at 1330 at McDonalds. I presume for 30 mins or so. That would be the best place to catch all the cars in one spot.

Expected to reach Pune at 1600 where one of the club members is hosting everyone at his home in Baner.

Of course it is not going to be a race. No one would actually allow something like that anymore.

I really do hope everything goes well. The SSC is a fantastic group of people with a similar passion. I hope one bad apple doesnt spoil everyone's day.

I would be coming too along with the C6. I guess everyone would assemble on the bandra side of the sea link and drive on from there. Will check for timings.

I'm sure we may stop right after the expressway, before we head to the member's residence.

Speedy, I was planning to check with DJ closer to Saturday on this. Maybe we can start off together from Peddar Road.
