Default Karting in Kochi

Since the karting venue is going to be open for a few months at the cocin international airport, and since its time we started thinking of our next meet, I'm starting a new thread here.
after the D R I V E last week, its going to be a tough act holding up bhpians expectations, but we can try.


there is probably a mini meet going to be held this evening. exact time to be decided over the next few hours.

most of the cochin guys have my number.I'll try and co ordinate.

people who are attending this evening.

ram hyundai
rippergeo
hydrashok
drpullockaran
govigov

everyone else please put down your names if you can make it. more the merrier.
this is a chance to criticise everyone else's driving style!!!

time is probably going to be 8pm/20:00hrs

now to get in touch with zakkie so that he can get us some good discounts.

Govigov has done a TD already, so further details from him when he shows up on the thread

it will be easier for me to send out numbers of people who came out for the meet last week by email rather than PMing everyone.. can everyone send their email IDs and phone numbers to me at louisjgeo@gmail.com? numbers will go out only to the members who have attended last time's meet.

It goes without saying that this is purely voluntary.

I should be crossing Ernakulam around the time this meet is proposed to start. I am off to Bangalore for an Indica group meet there tomorrow morning.

All the best for the meet today.

place closes at 1130pm anyway.

@govigov- you have'nt confirmed whether the rates of Rs17 for 3 laps was a typo or not.

just got back from the karting venue. hydra and myself had to leave early.

drove like a maniac for 10 laps spun out double that amount, crashed through the barriers and drove the wrong way down the track and scared poor hydra out of his wits.

you get the picture, I was a total menace on the track and i was going nowhere fast.

but I loved it and am going back for more.

nikki, ram, ashvin and aaha are probably still there going hell for leather. you will definitely get more accounts of how bad i was on track when they get back.

if this place doesnt make more cochin bhpians active, I dont know what will!

Really envy the guys who could make it to the meet tonight. I was at a conference venue and thankfully the topic for discussion was real good.

Ripper I will give you serious competition in crashing into the bails.

Bye and wear your seat belts. Did the carts have seat belts?

Thumbs up Terrific!!!!

WOW WOW WOW!!!! Thatz the feeling! Still chargedup by the solid jerks of cart on the track!!! hmmm...... am gonna be a regular visitor there for sure!!!!

Reached the venue a bit late and so cudn't see the "aakraantham" of Ripps!

Anyways.... this is a new experiance and defenitely we can better the skill in coming days incase if we try it regularly till they are here!

I did around 15 laps and all were succussfull with out a single slip!

Ram was doing the most quickest laps amoung us! Humble "AHA" too tried his share and did some good and quick laps!

I LOVE IT!

There are few snaps in AHA's cam! So dude, please do the honour!

cheers!
