Looks like karting wont be open till evening. So it is either the mahabs drive with karting on the way back or a Pondicherry drive as planned earlier.

So, have we decided on the date ? Is it Sat, 15th March or Sunday 16th March ? I would prefer Saturday.

If it is mahabs + carting, we could start late morning (11AM or so), drive to Mahabs, have lunch and on the return leg, do the karting.

But if its Pondy, then we would need to start earlier.

P.S.: Would a poll help here to finalise the date and the venue ?

Some 10 years ago, me and friends rode down to Pondy, had lunch and rode back. All this on a puny 4-stroke 100cc. The rear and back did pain like hell.

But, I am not trying that again on a bike though. But with a car, its a piece of cake, anyday.

Actually, it is a piece of cake for newbies also - especially the ones that managed to catch the i.

Jokes apart, both the roads we have to Pondy are real good. Hey, look forward to seeing the i10.

Raajiv, dont worry. Just take your shiny new car to the meet. Someone will ride along with you if required. This is your chance to get some snazzy pics clicked of your new i(tem)

There you go Raajiv. All set now?

P.S. Raajiv, chk if neoranjit is coming for the meet. His photography skills are superb and he can snap some great pics of your new blue car.

All I hope is Rudra does not chance upon this. Else, he might give up his passion.
