Mohnish, get yourself a girl friend. Take the two seater, let her drive and watch her cursing you for getting her to drive it in the first place . Then make sure you do take a pic of the two of you in that immovable box and keep reminding her how quick she was. It helps if you clocked her with a stop watch too. Trust me, those are memories you will never forget all your life. Sometimes, its just not about only racing lines, lap times, all decked up in riding gear. Once in a while get out and have fun.

Lets see, there is no point in me karting these days because the kart I sit in will hardly move. If I do manage to get free maybe we could do a session on the 2nd at Grips.

Oye Kulla, i never asked you not to get her, I said i'm out incase you are organizing a romantic drive ( on a Go-Karting Track ) instead of a T-Bhp Go-Karting meet . Sure, do get her but ask her not to Block me when i overtake her , she did that last time remember ?

Some of us managed to go to Grips today at around 5ish. The place was chaotic and was filled with almost 100 people who came there for karting. After waiting for over 1 hr in the queue we got our chance.

Foreground: shipwreck (sitting on the kart), avinash (memo's friend).
Background: mclaren0111, memo45_m (on the kart).
Cameraman: Yours truely.

Memo gets camera shy!

The Ressers! Ready to Jet Set Go.

We decide to let shipwreck win, so we decide to hop into memo's kart to make it slow!

Then we started to see ghosts on the track.

So we decide to wait and see if we would find memo's ghost. Here it whizzes past us. It was faster & thinner than memo!

We all had awesome fun, mostly poking jokes at each other. Unfortunately Jay, Binz, Tadu and Akshay couldn't make it to the meet.

For the serious go-karters, the best lap times were as follows:
memo45_m - 36.0 sec.
shipwreck - 37.16 sec.
mclaren0111 - 40.35 sec.
yours truely - 33.2 sec.

All times measured with a stopwatch on the Rs 200 go-karts. The Rs 300 karts look really powerful but we didn't hire them.

PS: Xinome, if you are reading this pls sms/pm your cell number.
theexister: kindly PM me your number so that I can update you on further meets.

Aye Rahul I was at gripps too on sunday, albeit in the morning. We started off at 10:30 am and were done by 12:30pm. The crowd was getting thicker , the 4th round of carting saw us waiting for almost 40 mins to get karts. Decided to call it day and leave.

I missed this one because, I sort of lost my way The one ways sometimes get me in circles.

I had to get back to pick up in-laws or else I could have made it somehow.

But I think I would have missed you guys because I went around 2 PM.
