Re-posting the Jag snaps after blanking out the number-plate.

29) The Jag. If this is not "in your face", not sure what is.

This is not a Race, but...
If you want to see "mostly" stock road cars run in circle around the track come Here (MMST Track day on July 11, 2010)

[quote]23) Winners of the 1st Saloon race - 2nd and 3rd place winners are veterans. The winner's tuner is the guy in forefront. Chief guest (in white) is the MP of A&N - forgot the name. [quote]

Hey I know that Tuner personally. His name is RadhaSelvaraj, he himself is a racer for more that 7 years.

He is the Guy who modded my zen, did all blueprinting and suspension work and stuff like that. Very good in his work and a great race enthusiast.

Wasn't the Jag standing in the pits? Or was there another one standing outside.

Jagxf, I know its sacrilege, but can't help asking, "What's the mileage you get?"

SB, I don't know what to call this... Mileage OCD ?
Say what ?

You do get a kick out of Km/Ltr don't you ?
Take part in a "Mileage" rally next time when one is organized.

BTW : Do you give courses on optimizing Km/Ltr ?

Ha ha, I once posed that question even to the driver of a train (Pearl City Express) who was taken aback a bit! So nothing wrong in posing the same to Jagxf, I think!

Ha, ha. No OCD or anything. Just for knowledge's sake. :-)

Doing a rally for the sake of mileage is pointless IMO - a waste of fuel.

No courses - but from experience, I have seen that a combination of anticipatory_driving + following_traffic_rules + leaving_one's_ego_at_home automatically betters the FE.

Well said. Some people who go in a slow speed's as well get started when we overtake. From then on you should see their driving style, blaring horns and trying to corner us from behind/side and what not.
