Eh, its 100 in 2nd gear at 6750rpm. Like I said you just concentrate on the road ahead and let me put up the figures. More like 130 at 6000 in 3rd gear. And at that speed if feels so effortless. And the car with 195/16's and that 1.2 Tonne tag wheelspins into 2nd man. Into 3rd too if you get the perfect shift.

Man you've become F-A-T (v1p3r - not rjstyles). And round, but I suppose that contributed to the aerodynamics.

Eh, I'm actually thinner than when we last met, you know. And I'm anyway so fast, I don't need to lose weight.

The puny 6.5bhp karts.



The superb handling 10 bhp karts. Sliding them is fun.



Just wish this go-kart had RWD, superb PTWR and a light weight driver .




Guess, the boys still haven't recovered from the fun and frolly. Was expecting all of them to come out with their first experiences on go-karts and other regulars about how they felt the track and karts at grips were. Where is everybody?

Hi Guys,

How do I get an update on these events, I always get to read these after the event, I missed the Nandi Drive and also this one . How and where can I see these events posted on TBHP in the future.

Thx

Srisha

I'm doing good, luxuriating in my air-conditioned room right now. Thank you.

And I've been karting since double the years you've had your DL from - I'm in semi-retirement right now.

Mahesh my friend looks like you didnt read this part:

Coming to karting I have been karting since the inception of Patel's Inn. Infact was one of the few who attended the inaugural function of Racepace. Back in those days the track was much shorter and karts were more powerful. Infact I had been to speedzone (smaller track) on the 3rd day it was started off. But ruin the fact that I couldn't get onto the bigger track . Never got the time.

Think after speedzone, grips is the most demanding track, then comes Patel's Inn , freeway 19 (where I had a lap record on one of the tracks till it was commissioned out) and the last being the one at Sarjapur Road. Though I guess Patel's Inn and Grips are the only functionally operating centres today.

The pleasure is ours. Altho the Bangalore v1p3r and the Mumbai viper might both scratch your name off their Christmas cards for mixing up their IDs

And Godfather will definitely put his black monster's weight to good use for not mentioning his name in the list


@Mclaren1885: Sorry - I had a brief moment of distraction from elsewhere
