Hurrycane and Me went to J.C. road by 1:30 hoping to finish all the work on the Baleno by 2:30 and head towards kanakapura road; as fate would have it we were stuck till 3:30 and then i proceeded towards Mysore road after picking up my wife for a karting session hurrycane stayed back to finish his work on the car.

Meanwhile Chikku and rocky were waiting for us to start karting. we buy some tickets to the most powerful carts for us three and smaller one for wife and we started.

Me and My wife were doing it for the first time and rocky seem to have mastered the track and karting as he had been to "grips" probably for about ten times or more. He was just blazing around while me and chikku were ok for the first six laps.

We felt very good about ourselves so decided to do another set of 12 laps and rocky was like "i will lap you guys for sure".

yes we were that bad and he was that good, but for our surprise we did pretty well the next 12 laps in tandem with rocky really rocking the track.

It was really awesome rocky !! indeed, we should do it again sometime

Hey guys here are a couple of pics from side a pity no one was there to take our photos. Though the number of people was low nevertheless great fun.

Enroute from dirt mania to grips saw Khan_sultan gypsy along with 8-9 other jeeps on kankapura road maybe they were having an OTR meet .

@alter you should have waited till we went carting everybody went crazy there.

The meet report:

First we went to dirt mania which is a quad biking venue. Though i had done this a couple of times before the feel was more like driving a auto/tractor. All of us were quite bad in doing that i have to say. So decided better to do something which we are a little better at.

Then me and chikku drove to "grips" through nice road.once we reached there had a soft drink chilled for a while and were waiting for raj to join us.
Once raj joined in we started our fun.
We drove about 24 laps in a 12BHP cart which goes really fast. Though i won this time as it was the first time for the chikku and raj. They catch on really quickly. On the last 12 laps of race they really gave me a run for my money after i spun out at a corner.

Next time i have to up my game a lot more i guess or may be bribe the carting center guy to sabotage your carts or tune my cart a little better.

guys why dont we do carting on a regular basis say every sunday morning?

The all terrain vehicles(ATV's) that we drove.

Did some off roading of our own as a huge tree had fallen down on kankpura road so this was the detour offered.The pics don't do justice to the gradient this road had.

Sure you did buddy; you could have done all the drifting on the track like the way you do it on the road.
