Aah.. finally the post is up. Great writeup v1p3r.
There is nothing much more for me to add.

Thanks to all the organisers - JD, sideways, poncho as well as all the other chennai guys - nitrous , karthik who went out of their way to make our trip fun. These guys are the nicest people i have ever met. I just cant wait to return for another track day. We're totally hooked.

And there is nothing as much fun as driving on a track. Also being taken around the track in the EVO was absolutely incredible. That has to be the fastest vehicle i have ever been in. And it also shows the HUGE difference between the driving styles of a pro and us amateurs.

We are sure to return the next time this is being organised. And all of the other guys who missed it this time, do try and make it next time around. Its an experience that cant be missed.

Interesting indeed. Anush could you please elaborate on this? It'll be a great help for amateur like me.

Hi Viper & mclaren excellent Write up & Pics. good to hear that you guyz had a great day on track.

After reading ponchos post reg the track day I THOUGHT it was only for professionals and novice's like me wouldn't fit into it. BIG MISTAKE. I should have joined you guyz on the track. Please let me know of the next event, will surely make it for the event.

Being in Chennai I missed this.

Hats off to the organisers and participants!

Rudra ji, the pro we are talking about is JD Madan, who is officially the fastest person on a dragstrip in India. He is also the quickest competitor in the Esteem saloon championships. When he throws a 300bhp AWD car with 5 people in it into an four-wheel drift on a wet track, you think to yourself, MAN I GOTTA GET ME ONE OF THESE!!!

Great Report guys. Brings back memories some sweet memories and some not so sweet (like when I crashed my RX).

Go for it man, its an absolute blast. Last year one of the veteran racers had an offer for a FISSME "arrive-and-drive" program for the whole season for like 95K or something. (BTW that's a really good deal). Not sure if it was KamleshPatel or Chandok.Sr.
If it too much, then 3 guys can share it and do 2 races each. No other expense.....just arrive at the track and jump into the cockpit. .......much...much cheaper than rallying.


Joz, Alto will work just fine. They even race TVS-50s in that track (its ridiculous...never quite figured why). But its better to run the short loop.....hey Sideways, it is possible to keep both the short and long loop open. All the tiny cars can take the short cut.

Mpower, we ran only the short loop. The full track had sections where the tar was peeling off, and got a little too gravelly, I'm told.

Wouldn't it be dangerous to run both halves together? The entry and exit between the loops would be a hotspot for accidents, I'm thinking.

Your're right its gonna be a little tricky, but you could say the same about the spot where the pit-exit feds right into the point between C1 and C2. Almost every track has a pit entry and pit exit and this would be similar.

Oh man, hopefully they can open up the full loop next time. There is a corner called the 'never ending corner'........takes a while to master the correct line.

I'm no pro when it comes to track because I've never done this in my life. On street I can manage myself or so I think after having a valid license for 29 years.

the guy on the BMW is a member of the red roosters ( thats wht the group is called ) in front of the black bike is stan , the sbk with 88 is poncho's and i think thats rohit by its side , the other bikers too are from the red roosters ..
