Yes, I should be able to make this one. Never driven a go-kart before except in DisneyWorld, that one was speed limited.

Thumbs up great going guys !!!!

ok i didnt quite expect such an overwhelming response from all u guys out there .. Sounds like this is going to be one hellava meet filled with fun and frolly ..

So far the guys who have confirmed are : v1p3r, nitin , steeroid , samurai , shan2nu , wolf , gray , anush , suhas , psycho , joz , satan , vasu , darshan (the surprise in store for u all ) , islandman , haque , lastly myself mclaren .. Thats brings the number to 17 right now .. Im looking fwd to make that number reach 20 so that we can have a go .. There a few guys who are yet to confirm , so i guess the numbers can only increase ..

Venue: Patel's Inn ..
Time : yet to be decided ( gotto have the race sometime in the afternoon to have the track to ourselves).. So request u all to be on time and kindly co-operate with the timings..

Rules : A set of 5 cars will take part in a race lasting for 10 mins each .. Starting grid will be chosen on chit system .. No winners will be declared but the fastest lap times will be put up for everyone to see .. 5 mins for changeover btwn each race .. So effictively we should be done within 1hrs time ..

Rates : Track will be hired at an hourly basis at 6.5 k for 5 karts .. So all will have to share the costs equally and request all to kindly co-operate in this regard too ..

Go-kart specs : 5 bhp karts , top speed of 60 kmph .. So nothing to worry about .. All that one needs to participate is the spirit , no prior karting talent required .. First timers will be given a crash course by the marshals on track ..

if anyone has better ideas,ur welcome to suggest the same .. Qualifying was a part of our initial plan but due to time constraints we had to scrap it ..

So this is on 8th right? my wife would most probably be there too.. actually she wants to meet psycho... to see if she can get some used nuts and bolts from his garage...apparently to make some art stuff with it. And yeah, 360 degree spins come naturally to her when it comes to carting. Mclaren shall pm my nuber to you. Do let know if there is any last minute change.

Ciao.

No no that was for someone else.. We have group here who are often referred to as UNCLE's.. Starting with Rudra Uncle , Samurai Uncle , Nitin Uncle , Steeroid Uncle , Keshav Uncle ... All bcoz they are elder to me and my parents ask me to call them so .. Gotto obey them right ?? Also all those who will be called uncle by either v1p3r or me join the club irrespective of age ..

hey harrie !!! Are u in bangalore ??? even if ur not im sure u will drive down just to spend some time with us .. Bring bhabhi also (look guys harrie still remembers us , though he did disappear all this while after getting married).. It will be scheduled on the 8th , but time as of now not yet decided .. Im yet to confirm the timings as those guys are a bit hesitant to give out the track on a sunday at peak hours and loose their regular customers .. But it will be held btwn 2 pm to 4:30 pm for sure ..

PS : i dont have ur cell number .. could u kindly PM it to me so that i can get in touch with u ..
