After the meet, I was trying to re-live those moments, and the ones that immediately came to may mind were:
a) Sidharth asking Shahnawaz and everyone what a certain performance product called "TRxxxxSE" does?
b) Who was the most scary yet talented driver on the forum? I especially remember two visual description of how this chap drives
  1. Hellstar's description on the way the scorpio's hood dived when that bhpian applied brakes...lol
  2. Shahnawaz's desciption on how that bhpian chose toll gates at the last moment
c) Siddharth and PrabhuAV's debate on Indian Railways was hilarious and so were the other debates involving the duo.

Nice pics Pavan. Thanks for sharing them.

The Peted Elantras were super fast, just loved the way they moved and ofcourse the way they were driven. So were the Verna and the Getzs.

Loved the way the Miata handled corners. Looked like Bratoo1 was not pushing it too much because he had his family with him. Lovely Enkeis, you have on your Miata mate.

I am not new to Pavan's Beetle, but still Herbie never ceases to amaze you. Cute thing it is:-) . My wife and I were just amazed at the way Herbie was keeping up with the modern cars. I was always keeping an eye on Pavan's car so he is not left behind but found out later there was no need to. At one point in the beginning of the drive, I pulled to the left because thought I had lost Pavan in my rear-view mirror because all I could see was a pair of squarish lights (Beetles have oval/roundish lights) tailing me at almost 20 metres distance. The chap tailing me also slows down and asks me if something was wrong. It was Pavan in his Beetle...lol. Maybe the round lights looked squarish because of the rain.

guys guys PAVAN has just classified on his impression , the entire point is to drive at their own comfortable pace and have fun that way..

@ Red_Circle- really appreciate the way to struck to your self imposed limit , given the fact that ur car was in the run-in period, i for one would have violated any limit set for myself when i had so many cars zooming around me.

So rightly said, every time when on these drives there seems to be a competition as who is first on the other side of the drive rather than driving in a comfortable speed, so as to enjoy the drive rather than competing with one another

Finally the night drives are getting better turn outs. Its a lot of fun, we regulars do it every Saturday night. Hoping to see more of you at the future drives.

Anoop, like I told you, Shyam took the Matthikere route. I bumped into him near my place and he thought he saw two cars turn left there and followed them .

Shyam, we drive to Kamat and then to CCD or Barista every Sat or Friday night. Just take one of our numbers and give us a buzz around Friday evening to know the plan.

we even used to try the mulbagal CCD,but now that road is under 4 laning.. thats also a good drive .

we should try newer routes , a krishnagiri drive would have been nice but there would be so many heavy vehicles at the time we typically drive out.

that whoosh was from from Mclarens leaking turbo , instead of honking he was spooling the turbo to scare off people from the road for making way for his car.
