I think there should be a change in the programme next year. They should have the drive early morning at 7.30 or 8.00 and the have the display of cars. The traffic doesnt help at all
I agree, we had the same reaction from normal car users in the Lotus. We were behind you on sealink when the Bawa was getting pissed off in the Phantom.

I have suggested this to DJ and also many other owners have agreed to this.

You mean I.M. in the Corvette..he was not speeding at 200+ on the sealink. It was to be an exhibition drive, which some owners turned into a race track of sorts.

Yes they were standing on reclamtaion a little ahead of the regrouping spot. Thats where many cars not part of the SSC event joined in for the drive.

I'm completely smitten by the 458 Italia. Although i don't quite like the yellow wheels.

Do u really think it will make a huge difference?? IMO the car enthusiasts will be chasing the supercars even then. I too witness several close calls every year on the supercar rally day (from home that is), where each one on the road is trying to either keep up or click the participant cars and causing total chaos around. Maybe having a dedicated lane for the supercars on that particular day may be 1 solution to this. In that way the supercars will not have a chance to race each other and also be kind of protected from hooligan enthusiasts. (ps: I donot know the rules and permissions required for this so please donot shoot me if this suggestion seems illogical).
Also did anyone else notice/snap Mr.TATA's LHD Ferrari on sunday?? It took a turn from the babulnath signal and did not follow the other cars to walkeshwar.

A Sunday well spent. A decent turn out of cars at the event. Me and Dippy rode in the Roller Phantom this year for the rally. Here is selection of pictures which I shot at the show

Fantastic coverage & pictures guys.

I had no idea Bombay had so many super cars.
It's great all the owners are actually coming out and displaying / driving them instead of making them garage queens.

Actually, LOTS of supercars are missing from action in those pictures. There is more. MUCH more in Bombay is you know the right people!

Awesome, simply awesome. The Chevy Corvette looks fantastic. Pretty much took the cake for me.
Glad they had some babes to strut their stuff too.

What's the deal with that silly looking excuse of a car from DC...wonder if the owner mistook the title 'Supercar Show' as something else.
