hi guys,
The current layout of the track has a lot of hairpins. This has been done to avoid accidents. The initial layout that was used for the first two weeks was an extremely fast one but due to that a lot of high speed crashes were taking place. Thats why the layout has been changed keeping safety in mind. Enthusiasts prefer the fast layout for a lot of people who are not very good at this it's not safe at all. If you see some of the accidents that happen there you will know what I mean. There are people who spin out and end up going in the wrong direction. It's very scary.
The 9bhp karts are not being given to everyone due to the issue of safety. Those who can handle the cars well will be given the 9bhp karts.
You can ask the person to show you all your lap times if you want to. The default setting only shows you the best lap.

I would also be interested in meeting there on saturday. 4 may be too hot. 6 sounds perfect.

So, 6 PM it is. One friend told me that he will be always doing the fastest lap during night.

Yeah that is true. The weather is better later in the evening and apparently that has an effect on the tyres. Most the fastest laps set so far have been later in the evening.

We had an awesome time together. Go-pg straight in to the leader board with a lap time of 39.2xx . Current lap record is 38.700 by Ashwin Sundar.I am sure you could break in to 38's.

Prithvi, had a nice time talking to you. Good lap timing as well, I think you were doing early 40's 40.3XX. BTW I achieved my goal of breaking in to 40's, did a best of 40.666.

One incident I wanted to narrate, go-pg was right behind me on the last corner, so I thought I will let him pass, I went slightly wide of the racing line, little did I knew that going to the dusty part of the track you will loose traction.
I turned and boy heavy under steer, I was going straight towards the tyre barrier, did a lift off over steer to save my self. Lesson learned , so the next time what I did was a little tap on the brake to let him pass.

I think we should have more bhpian's for the next meet, what say guys. Looking forward to the next meet.

Damn, you jumped me!. It was amazing!. I probably could have hit low 39's or high 38's if i had run one more run. You definitely go quicker late in the night. Anyways, 38's next time around!. Great meeting you and prithvi. We surely need more folks from team bhp. May be a Team-bhp mini league at the ECR speedway! . 5 minute Qualifying, 10 minute sprint race and then reversed grid for 15 minute race. Just wishing

I did not like the track seeing it on the video, but its not bad. If there is one more corner like turn 4,5 it would have been awesome. That being said, its a real challenge with the sand as you witnessed. A little off line and you are the mercy of your kart.

Next time, i want to run with the pro's. I am pretty sure we could shave 2 or 3 tenths. And btw, i jst went through the qualifying results. Disappointed for Ferrari, but consolation from Kimi's starting position.

Best track times so far below. I am 5th.

Yesterday was good fun. The sand on the track was a little bit of a problem. Nice to finally meet some T-Bhpians. Pranesh was really good. He was driving on the track for the first time and still managed some amazing times.. I managed to get into the 39 second times. Managed a 39.8 in my last run.

We should definitely meet more often and race there.
