regarding a report... will wait for it... as i'm not good at it...
but really enjoyed it.... met a lot of people for the 1st time...

loved AnniHilat0R's RC.. it was fast...
enjoyed more on the way back when my car was going sideways on the bends on the expressway untill they scared me by saying my tires were smoking...
it was fun to chase the SIDEWINDER the entire expressway there after...
and then the Drag at Kharghar... just was not in touch i must say...


but here are some pic from me...

Sardar on his knees...


5 Hondas ... still cant beat the lancer


White and Red Vtec's from Club Burnouts, Pune... Mickey's Blue B15... the Sidewinder... any my Lancer...



... and the little monsters... loved the Subaru though ... for the 1st time...

It was a tiring day end for me on Saturday at 2:30 am. After having so many beers and late night coffee to spoil the taste of Beer looked difficult to wake up at 7 am to get all the Pune buffaloes out of their beds. The monsters that took time included Amee and Swale. The smart guys switched their phones off a la Rahulvilas. The even smarter guys answered and went back to sleep think Shrivz. The punctual ones 1self and Kumar Ranjan were absolutely on time. Swaley woke up on the 10th call and I picked him up but after one smoke it was time to smoke the entire restroom. He headed back home only to return an hour later. Frantic calls to assemble at 9:00 am went in vain. Shrivz was waiting for rahulvilas, Karl was waiting for Shrivz, Amee was waiting for Dhaval, Dhaval was waiting for an approval to take the car out. It was a mess. Couple of abuses later we: 1self, Ranjan, hkanitkar and Swaley decided to head forward to Lonavala and asked the other buggers to join us there:





Few more calls later we knew everyone was on road and decided to assemble at the beginning of the expressway:

The punctual boys:





Kumar_Ranjan:



HKanitkar:



Swale84:



1self (I don't know which one):



And me of course (Not in picture) :-)

Late comer # 1 - Dhaval:



Late comer # 2 - rahulvilas:



Late comer # 3 - shrivz:



Late comer # 4 - Not in picture Amee

The arrival of all Pune bhpians and the expression of love to each other by giving hugs, kisses, et al.

The hugging and kissing sessions:







Decided to start off and regroup at the HP pump after the first toll. Everyone set the roads on fire. 1self has the fastest car but of course. All others were nearly the same. Swaley pulled out a fastest of 180 kmph on his absolute best control:

@ 160kmph:



and seconds later at 180 kmph:



I immediately messaged Karl asking him whether he's doing good or not and "we just did a controlled 180kmph"

Reply # 1: "Ya.. S10 tailgating! Any my breakfast is coming bak on"

Reply # 2 (milliseconds later): Shrivzy gonna kill us all! 195.

On the fly shots:



Trying a Shrivz:



At the toll gate:

1 self start:



Souped up Baleno:



Swaley wanted to tank up on Petrol because we were nearing the empty mark. Took some random shots there:

The 1.6 liter pounders:





The lovely Swifts from Pune:



The German engineering difference:



Sweet Swift:



People began speaking out top speeds and in comes Dhaval saying "Arre yaar kitna slow hai Fiesta, 190 ke aage jaata hi nahi hai"

Headed off for Lonavala and regrouped with the Bombay boys who hadn't reached then. Decided to have breakfast comprising of Frito Lays and Frooti. Bombay boys arrived and we got on to the bridge close to the river and halted there for a photo shoot. No one had a wide angle lens nor a camera that could take one, so please stitch the pictures yourself of 1self:

Regroup after Lonavla:

















Headed off to Amby valley with the Ikon leading all the way followed by the Corsa and then the Fiesta. Didn't have news of anyone else behind us. Its tad difficult to keep a track of 20-24 cars. On reaching Amby valley we realised that only the Pune boys and ibCool from Bombay has made it. Called up Viper a few moments later and found that they were waiting for us to come LOL. Jiggy we hadn't even got the fastest car and this? What would happen if Karlos got his Fiat?

At Amby valley:

At Amby Valley:















Finally the Bombay boys arrived except Nitro-XXX. He spun off somewhere trying a drift or something and damaged a brand new tyre.

The difference is Korean engineering:



The car has a nice feature. Whenever the engine heats up, there is an indication that it is hot:



Everyone?



All right, everyone here?



Hi-res:



Pune tribute to apro Jiggy bhai:





Pune boys had to leave early because some were apparently in college while some had stepped out for breakfast, some had to get to Bombay, etc. Next time we'll try to stay back for lunch.

Thanks guys for making this a grand success.
