The unfortunate bang happened near Sriperumbudur.
An untended cow suddenly crossed the highway in the path of a speeding Dzire, which slammed brakes and cow.
Nikhil who was following, rear ended the Dzire.
Coolant leak/radiator and collateral damages rendered his car undriveable. Occupants of both cars came out unscathed. Thanks to God for that.

Nice pics as usual Sudarsanan Sir and Rohan.
I really felt bad for not being able to attend the Evening refreshment and the dinner.
Will definitely make it to the next trip.

Looks like you guys had a very nice time. Karthik didn't miss the chance to give the jet a wipe with the jopasu in between the stops.

Working weekends are making me miss all this fun . Btw, I see a zoom car in the convey, did someone hire the car for this meet.

Hope to make it for the next one, which i am sure is already in the pipeline knowing Ravi Sir.

Cheers

Nikhil was following a copper coloured Swift, traffic beginning to thin out past Sriperumbudur, everybody accelerating.
Cow ran across the road. Non-ABS Swift with stock tyres tried but could not avoid it, hit the cow really hard.
Nikhil tried to avoid hitting the Swift, but ended up rear ending it albeit at a much slower speed.

Thumbs up Re: Team-BHP Meet @ Mamallapuram: 21/22 February, 2015

Fantastic trip throughout, filled with lots of minute attention to detail that only a trip planned by Rsudarsanan can manage.

The hotel beat my expectations by a wide margin. It was totally worth the price and more.
The food was brilliant as well.

My car was in its element this trip, loving the expressway roads and not much twisties! I sort of fell in love with it again. Riding the torque wave in 5th to overtake can be a surprising amount of fun!

Highlight of the drive was following Zebo back after the stop at GRT vellore back to BLR.

To put it simply, we beat google's estimate by an hour !

Thanks for piloting all the way.

You really should try for the next one. Hopefully we can get a thread up way in advance so that people have options to schedule things around it.

Mr. Karthik was subjected to much laughter for that one

The Figo was rented by Raajks, his polo gt tdi is sold. He's upgrading to something a lot more exciting! He drove that like .

It was surprisingly badly maintained, with mismatched, uneven and worn tires.

The car seems to be fine structurally, so no big deal, just a new front bumper and some associated bits like a radiator.

Was having too much fun to take any pictures!

Cow had broken a leg (or maybe two, I did not investigate). The owner of the cow came to take care of it after about half an hour.
