Overall a great drive.

Looked like we had the F1 qualifying on the Mysore road.

We had the fastest and the slowest of cars on the drive.

Fastest by classification
1) Elantra's both of them Pete'd= by far they were unbeatable on that stretch,
2) Hyundai Pete'd Verna= Again pete'd
3) Mazda Miata= stuck to the road like i cannot explain and was too fast also
4) Skoda=Beauty on road
5) Race Dynamics ECU Esteem=Though this was also the fastest on road, Santhosh had to slow down because of low tyre pressure,
6) 1967 VW Beetle=All stock, and was the slowest at 130kmph.

By far my be;st night drive and a great T-BHP meet, my wifey and kid missed out on the last moment.

Thank you Brraj for a great drive, weather played spoilsport initially but was fun all the way.

Much to the ire of my parents i reached home by 2

Pics will be posted later,...........

Would have been great to join you guys for the meet, but too many things to do at home and no ride as of now! :(

Maybe the next one.

And... where are the PHOTOS!!!

Yeah i came up behind Herbie and just held the position for a moment to digest the speed the cute one was doing ! and then moved on to keep company with the Mazda till about ten kilometers before nice junction thats when the Yoko A-drives started acting up so i pulled ahead deciding to put some distance betweeen the cars. Interestingly on the way to the meet i was doing similar speeds but in the rain but i guess the water keep the tyres from acting up.

Photos please ....

PS: Myself and Mclaren waited for a couple of minutes because, we thought that the getz CRDi which was on the way to Kempapura had lost us in the traffic. I hope he knew the way from yeshawantpur.

yeah , i did have that in mind as i shared with you went we met again at NICE road junction. But this is something that we normally see on our way back from night drives. The trucks with sand move into the city during off peak hours.

But trust me the scene would have been much wore if it was raining like the way it was when you guys started.

O K , O K , Here are the photo's,

The start to the drive, we had to face heavy traffic, and later rain.

We all met at the beginning of NICE road, had to wait for few guys to turn up.

And as per standards set, we all started our drive towards Kamat Lokaruchi at 9:30 pm instead of 8:30, Anyways it was the IST which we all follow

Some more pics

$@~t#o$# and brat001 were the only two guys accompanied with their families. My wifey and kid dropped out the last moment , We'll make it next time for sure.

After some nice South Karnataka Meals, Idli's Vada's, Masala Dosa's, Coffee's, Tea's, Sugarcane Juices.........., We all took some time off to discuss few T-BHP bits.

Spent some time at Kamat Lokaruchi and as per few BHP'ians suggestion, we set our journey to Barista a few km's away from Kamat.

Myself joined with the moderator in the Bug started the spirited drive to the spot, even now i maintained an average speeds of 120 kmph but some of them just vanished at 160 kmph, anyways thats the best my Bug can do.

Again at Barista, we had a ball, chatting away till the next day(YES LITERALLY) we left Barista at 1:15.

The Drive back again was spirited with no rains and to our good luck so less traffic. With the cool breeze the bug handled so well to my satisfaction, reached the NICE spot and we said goodbye to each other from there.

2:15 was the time i reached home, much to the dissatisfaction of my parents:( , anyways a fun drive Meet and thanks Brraj for hitting upon this idea. Untill the next night drive,,See ya guys
