18. The red OHC - loved it.



19. Everyone crowded around the mclaren's Baleno.



20. Lunch time (finally, after warm beer). Atleast the beer at last Chennai meet was cold.



21. The group snap.



23. Headers and nitrous belt up for the drive to Blore.


24. Wifey with the Baleno and Palio. bottle was doing some decent speeds.



25. Waiting for the guys (how slow can you be guys :-)) who left before us, to catch up.



Overall a nice meet. Only grouse - warm beer.

Dont know how you guys felt about it, but that food and service was not even worth half the bucks we paid.

Hi All,

It was a great meet and this time there were lot of new faces to see.
The drive was great and so were the roads.

After we left the A1 plaza, i was accompanied by mclaren and tadu till krishnagiri tollgate. Later krishnagiri to the next tollgate i was slow just to see others car perform. If we would have done non-stop from bangalore-yelagiri we would have reached yelagiri within an hour i guess. The short drive didn't satisfy me at all, i still wanted to drive...

While returning back suddenly a cow ran and come in front of wheelij's car and i was surprised to see that she controlled the car very well leaving a lot of white smoke behind. Akshay who was sleeping in my car suddenly woke up to see the incident and was able to smell the burnt rubber of her car. He also asked wheelij whether she is ok or need assistance in driving but she was ok. Later we reached karnataka border and saw a black accent crdi and blue elantra which were in a drag and both were easily overtaken by my ikon 1.6. Later i dropped akshay near the thali restaurant and left to my place.

Thanks Rahul for making great meet happen and accompanying me.

Sigh! looks like i really missed a good trip and a great drive.

Met anyways - I met up with the Chennai "annas" at 6am - nitrous who was to give me a wake up call calls me thirty mins late. anyways, i decide to rush off, and 10 mins later am at the meeting point. Thought i would catch up with everyone before they left.
It was nice to see everyne.. took a few snaps and had to rush back home to complete some family formalities! :(
Seeing 5 cars take off in a row was nice ... i can imagine how it must have been to see 21 cars do that!

ps: RJ - nice pics -liked the series of all the cars in action!
