Could you please tell us the route that might be followed? Makes it easier for those who have prior appointments to make it to the appropriate location once they're free.

Judging by the sponor ads, it will start at ITC Gardenia, go on St Marks ROad, towards Bellary Road and onto NH4 past the airport

Can we have a Bangalore BHPian meet for the Supercar drive this Sunday? It would be nice to put faces to names.

I second this idea.

But any idea if it's an open event? I mean, will everyone be allowed into ITC Gardenia to view the cars?

I'd been to the CannonBall Show today. It started off well, with the white Aventador. He absolutely floored the car. I can only imagine how the DMC Winged Aventador sounds now with the Capristo Exhaust. Besides that, I was quite disappointed.

They made us wait outside the hotel, for close to an hour. The cars left in something that lasted for about 2 minutes and that was it. They hadn't even told us where the cars were going. I heard someone tell me they were going to Palace Grounds. Went there, but nobody home.

And the cops over there wouldn't even let people stand on the footpath and look into the hotel.

Anyway, these are the attendees I can remember:

Black Audi R8 V10
White Audi R8 V8(I think)
Silver Audi R8 V8
Red Audi R8(Left last I think)
White Lamborghini Aventador
Silver Rolls Royce Ghost
Maroon Jaguar XK-R
Black Merc SLK
White Lexus SC430 Soarer
BMW Z4
Porsches, loads of them(The ones with the Vorsteiner Kit, the deep green one with BBS Rims, the white turbos, the red Cayman, Blue Porsche Cayenne and the Brown Panamera and few others I guess)
Lancer Evolution X, 3 of them I think
Maserati Quattroporte
Maserati GT
SLS AMG Roadster, the same one which was on display in UB City a while ago.(Left just before the red R8)

All this while there was a white Bentley Continental GT Speed at UB City.

Looked like an invitee to me.

Our dear Avishar is taking a ride in the Lancer Evo X. I also saw UnknownSatan and EP there. But don't know which car they got into.

Honestly, a very disappointing show for many reasons. First of all some of Bangalore's best cars were not present ( None of the Astons, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, GTRs etc). Secondly, the space was too cramped for the cars to be even parked properly. And the crowd management was just horrible. Thank god I was in ITC for a meeting otherwise I would ve just given up and headed home.

Ugh! The last thing that R8 needed was those even uglier black things hanging from the grills.

I thought evil eye would just bounce of the reflective chrome, wouldn't it?

Yup, I was inside the ITC with my family & friend, was quite disappointed as B'lore's some of the best super cars choose not to be in the show.

The drivers had no idea when they should leave and was very cramped, security were haywire not knowing whom to manage. Police were cursing and the anger was thrown on the crowd.
Overall saw some super cars and drove back home - nothing much exciting.

The white aventador was there initially but the owner chose to go elsewhere neglecting the drive. So I guess this doesn't count. Also, the grey Rapide wasn't there at ITC but made it all the way to NICE road. What a beauty! None of the GTR's were there, but when all the supercars were returning to ITC, I spotted the grey 'zilla entering the hotel too. He wasn't there for anything else.

But it was fun to watch the beauties stretching their legs at NICE road. What a sight But the show could've been organized way better. Missed the best of Bangalore's supercars though (racetech'd aventador, black italia,remaining GTR's,gallardos).There was a G55 AMG too. What a beast.
