So, where exactly is this karting place? I hope they do have parking slot for 20+ cars!

Put me in the tentative list for now please.

If I can be back to HSR Layout by 2:30 PM on 6th or on 7th, I am in. Look forward to my first meet.

Any idea what age group of juniors are allowed?

It is on Mysore road, roughly 40 km from the city, right after Ramanagaram town.

Sample route from NICE road - Bannerghatta road junction:

You may have to change your point A to Yelahanka and you are good to go!

Else, we can just take our cars onto the race track, what say? 2 birds killed in 1 stone.

Most of the karting places have those dual seat karts for taking family members (no restrictions). For regular single seat karts, I think the age restriction is usually 14+ in other places; should be the same here too.

Good to go for 160 kms! And you want me to believe these are 'quick meets at Bangalore'.

4 tyres too!

Even better - I can take up the offer to drive a T-Jet, on the track.

Sorry guys, I will have to drop out of this one. I am (yet again!!) headed to Udupi. Last weekend, I went in bus, thanks to wifey's insistence

This weekend, I prevailed. I drive. Yee-Haw! I head out Thursday and will be back Sunday evening.

Had been to Nilambur (Kerala) during this weekend, and noticed this place on the way to Mysore.

Will bring along the RX135, provided you guys won't be speeding away at 100kph +!

On Mysore road it isn't possible to speed away anywhere , so bring it.

Since we need to make sure everyone is accommodated into at least 1 chance at karting AND ATV off-roading, I strongly suggest Saturday as a better day for this event. On Sunday the place will be very crowded and I would not want a few BHPians not getting a chance, etc due to delays. We'll make it 6th this time.

Updating the venue, date and time:

Place : Speedway karting and ATV off-roading, Ramanagaram, Mysore road (landmark : opposite Janapada Loka and Kamat Lokaruchi, just before Kanva reservoir arch)

URL link to gallery :
http://www.speedwayindia.com/gallery.htm

Distance : ~50km from NICE road - Mysore road intersection

Date : 6th April, Saturday.

Time : will update soon after checking with them on what time they open.

Plan : We can have breakfast at Bidadi (famous for thatte idli joints on the highway) or at a proper restaurant (eg. Kadu Mane opposite Wonderla), and proceed for karting / ATV. Families and kids are welcome to join. After a customary photoshoot, we can head homewards by noon / lunch. Of course, those who want to include lunch in the plan can always stop at some place on the way back.

Karting / ATV ride prices : will check with them and update today on this thread.

Bookings : I will inform them about our approximate group number, and will try to reserve slots for our group (if they agree to do that)

Updating list of attendees :

KarthikK - Linea T-Jet / Thunderbird
Manas5 - ???
n_Aditya (+ half ticket) - Ritz / Ninja 250
arun_josie - Swift DZire
dass - ???
Schoudhury - Ritz
Vik0728 - Getz
Viju - RX135
raj.barcode - i20 / Thar
PC77 - Swift DZire
shimshumara - i10
ashis89 - P180
Diesel convert - Rapid
Motomaverick - remapped Manza
shishir_bn (+ half ticket) - Xylo
Ikoner_03 - Ikon
CrAzY dRiVeR - Punto 90HP (tentative)
arjithin - ???
rohittunga - Linea
lavish_n - ???

The guys with ???, please update your rides in the list so that it will be easy to identify you on D-day.

Bangy guys run on TST (Team-bhp Standard Time), so the standards of 'quick' are different

Giving it some serious thought, with a 5.4m turning radius on a small karting track, are you sure?

Hehe. Home-turf for lavish_n. He's the one with the record lap time to beat I guess.
