All are welcome with their families too .. But serious advice would be to leave ur wifey and kids at home unless they are auto enthus .. If not they will get bored and create ruckus listening to RPM , BHP , Traction , Powershifting etc etc all the time from us .. Saying this from personal experience ..

Himanshu , all drives start at about 7 in the morning (if 1 Mr.v1p3r would wake up on time) and are done with by about 4 in the evening ..

Count me in as well. Atleast for now, as the date is too far ahead in the future for complete confirmation. :-)

Guys,

My house is in Jayanagar 8th Blk - Bangalore south and near to Ring Rd/Mysore Rd - Can I join from some point near here?!

Or should we congregate in front of Grips on Mysore Rd itself?

Most often than not the start off point is a place from where everyone will have to pass through .. For eg , it was dakshin honda on the krishnagiri trip .. Everyone will have to pass this so its easier to find .. As the time comes close we can choose such a destination on the mysore road too where every member can meet up ..

Wish i could get my GF to the meet and make her drive a go-kart on our return journey at grips .. She would leave a few dropping jaws with her impressive pace ... But alas she is leaving to her hometown on the 21st itself ..

Hello sir , im not discouraging any women folks to accompany us just warning the others a little ahead .. Dont want the goa episode to repeat where the ladies would go " WILL U GUYS PLS TALK ABOUT ANYTHING OTHER THAN CARS ?? " unless u have forgotten the statement .. LOL !!!!

But then why Mysore road ???..... people all along the road want to commit suicide... missed running over a scooter guy while driving an Innova, still regret having skid in the Innova for a good 25 feet to avoid that moron ( who even after looking at the car coming at a pretty good pace, all of a sudden decided to take a U turn to the right from the extreme left ), feel that i should have gone through him...

The road is newly laid but too narrow and goes right through the villiages instead of around them and has no fencing/barracades to keep the villiage people and their vehicles away from the road, leave alone their cattle, which makes it VERY DANGEROUS....

exactly my point. n given the hot blooded drivers we have, its a recipe fr disaster, unless we all swear upon all that we love and honor, to stick to a safe speed limit... sumwhere around 80 to 100.

Amitoj , we are going majorly here ... I personally have nothing against the women folks coming (remember i was the one who gave the idea in the 1st place for the goa meet too) .. Neither have any issues with people wanting to talk about anything other than cars .. All im saying going by our tendecies to ONLY TALK ABOUT CARS the women are bound to get BORED .. So its better to warn them up front only.. That said and done , i personally would have got my GF along if she was not going back to her hometown because she never gets bored with car talk as she is one enthu too ... I repeat all those who want to bring their better halves along are most welcome to ..

PS : Im beginning to wonder if ur posting under some (or should it be someones) influence .. Just kidding ..

Personally i dont have any clue about the mysore road , why it was chosen as a destination was that the project now at its completed stage has some nice stretches to push the cars and also that it would be on the way to get to GRIPS the karting centre on our way back .. Bad road manners by 2 wheelers , pedestrians , lorries coming in wrong lanes is a part and parcel of the krishnagiri run too aint it ??? Unless the mysore road is much worse .. Anyways destination is still open to decide upon .. Any alternative suggestiosns ??
