Default Delhi 2 Neemrana Fort & Palace (Rajasthan)

Hi Guys,
This Sunday id gone to Neemrana Fort & Palace which is a beautiful heritage site about 120kms away from Delhi. The Palio's done 1600 kms and over with it's run in period, ready to run loose on the NH8. This was a primary reason for the day trip . The car was put through it's paces with a max speed of 150 kmph being reached even though the highways was very busy. On the way i enjoyed racing with a Corolla (which was being driven by a young capable though rash driver) an Optra 1.8 and an Aveo 1.6.

The Palio's capability to reach 150 kmph from 100 kmph in 4th gear was even better than all except the Corolla which by all means seemed the fastest though by not a big margin. Even at 150 the Palio felt sure except for the lil body sway du to the high ground clearance. The high CG came in handy tackling the bad roads leading to the Fort through Neemrana village.
