nitrous, is it 11AM or 12 PM ?

I am not much of an F1 fan, but given that quite some of the gang would like to catch the F1 action, nitrous' plan is OK with me.

Given the chennai weather, I think what nitrous suggested makes sense. What about the rest of the gang ? Post your opinions so that we can finalise the schedule - it is just 2 days away.

P.S. : BTW, on which TV channel can we catch F1 ?

Sam, when I saw you on this thread, I thought maybe you had a Madras visit planned around the time of our meet.

I side with Nitrous on the timing, if not for the F1, I dont even know if I can get up at 9 am (so early in the morning) after Friday night

yeah, i like the terrace briefing. fix it up headers.


Ok, since F1 takes precedence with car enthus, we will have to make a slot for that & meet at 11.00 Tidel Park. Will follow nitro anna's plans. Hope that is ok with all.

@VMG, please try & make it man, if not for the whole hog, at least for as long as you can.

@Yeti_in_love: i once saw a in a thread (Team-BHP Video is here!!)about a mahabs drive in mumbai & realsed that you too have a mahabs there. Feeling's mutual.

We would be parked on the road opposite TIDEL park (adjacent to MRTS station) - there is a service lane there and should be OK.

BTW, anyone driving to Tidel via Nelson Manickam Road ? Might need a lift till TIDEL.
