Having had my first ever thatte idli from Bidadi last weekend, I definitely vote for a thatte idli breakfast.

Hoping some more guys would join in on bikes.

@ KarthikK, let me know in case you need help with anything at all.

Karthik: The avatar pic was taken a decade back before my shoulder dislocation. Haven't been behind the wheels of a kart since then. I wanted to give it a try this time.

Hey guys, I totally forgot that I have a service scheduled for my Skoda Rapid this saturday. Not sure if I'd get it back in time for the meet

I just spoke to Mr. Srinivas of Speedway. He was happy to hear that Team-BHP was planning a meet there, and was delighted to explain about the facility and details of karting and ATV facilities they have there.

About the facility :
- located on Mysore road after Ramanagaram town, ~50 km from NICE road / Mysore road intersection
- opens at 9:30AM on weekends
- has adequate car parking facility for 20+ cars (clarifies a doubt asked by CrazyDriver earlier on this thread)
- has basic refreshments such as cool drinks, cold water, snacks, etc.

Go-Karting :

- They have 5 karts at our service
- Track length is ~700m (comparable to E-zone Torq03 track at Marathahalli)
- Karting is priced at Rs. 179/- per head. This includes 3 laps. Whoever wants additional time can buy extra tickets for themselves.
- Karts are powered by 200cc Honda engines and are rated at 9.5 BHP and 80 kmph top speed.


ATV :

- There are 5-6 ATVs of 2 categories - one type is a 150cc ATV and another is a 250cc ATV.
- The off-road track length is ~800m and 1 lap takes around 10 minutes for an average newbie rider.
- The 150cc ATV ride is priced at Rs. 219 /- and the 250cc ATV ride is priced at Rs. 249 /-.
- helmets and gear will be provided on the spot

For a group of 20 people, it will take approximately 3 hours for everyone to get a chance at both karting and off-roading. If we reach the place at 9:30, we can finish and vacate the place by noon.

Saturday or Sunday, either plan is ok. He told me to give him the exact (or almost exact) headcount, and he will block the majority of karts/ATVs for our group, so we need not worry about other visitors disrupting our meet schedule. Speedway was happy to know we were planning to have a petrol-head meet at their facility amidst petrol machines.

Please now let me know whether you want Saturday or Sunday. Aditya sir, could you add a voting button if possible? I will give Speedway an approx headcount number by Thursday and tell them which day we are going there (based on what you guys choose). I am ok with either of the days - 6th or 7th.

+1. There is something about it which makes you to keep going back for more. I go there almost every saturday morning for an early morning drive + breakfast at Bidadi.

You have company. I might be coming on a Thunderbird 350.

thanks a lot, will definitely inform you in case I need any help. At the moment, nothing at all required. I just need to inform them which day and how many of us are going, that's it. Hehe.

Postpone your service man! You can do it any day, but a team-bhp meet won't happen every day *lol*

Do join in. We target to reach there by 9:30, and get back by 12.30-1. If you need to leave early, you can go for the first few batches of karting and ATV, and can take leave at your convenience.

KarthikK - Linea T-Jet / Thunderbird

pganapathy - Alto ??

EDIT : the manager called me again now. It seems like Sunday is better for them since they have no bookings at all on Sunday. They have offered to host us on Sunday with exclusive service only for us team-bhp members.

So don't bother about the voting. The final date is 7th April, Sunday.

Karthik, just when I was wondering how would I manage to be a part of this meet on Saturday, you Eased things out for me!!
Sunday it is.

Im not a big fan of 'Idli', but that shouldn't stop me from being on this meet.
Rain or not, can we all plan to meet up bit early, for a 'Hot Drive' through a 'Cool Sunday' morning ??

Sorry I'd somehow missed your post. Yes, it is on 7th, Sunday. We plan to reach there by 9ish. I have requested the manager to open the place half an hour earlier. We can be done with our karting / ATV rides, and leave from there by 12ish.

These are no ordinary idlis. These are Thatte idlis served with butter, red chilly chutney and Potato Sagu. If you don't like that, you can have chitra anna. Otherwise, you can wait until we reach the karting place and eat some snacks there - I'm guessing they have the usual junk food fare - Lays, burgers, buns, blah blah.

If it rains on Saturday night, I am not wearing any light colored t-shirt. The mud water spray will get my mom enacting some of the washing powder ad scenes when I return home.

By the way, where is the biker gang? rk_sans? ku69rd? niranjanrvce?

AWESOME.

I'm 90% confirmed (depends on the Tirumala darshan on 6th).
I've missed many meets recently and don't want to miss this one for sure

Cheers,

Guys am out for Sunday as my classes are 2-6 on Saturday and 9-6 on Sunday. Final timetable due in a day or two but 99% out for now. I might just make it to the morning meeting point if time permits. So sad cos wanted to do this. C'est la vie. And yes Karthik, it would have been my alto. Good memory.

So shall we all group at NICE Road/Mysore Road intersection at 7am? This would allow for breakfast time as well.

I would be coming via Electronic City NICE road so anyone from Koramangala, HSR, Sarjapur road we might wanna sync up at HSR layout 14th Cross signal after the flyover.
