Forum Handle: Iron Rock || Location: Pune || Favourite Car: Mercedes Benz G63 AMG
Iron Rock (not a cradle name!) has been a keen automobile enthusiast for well over three decades now. Amusingly, he was smitten by automotive bug with the “Bug” (No pun intended). Yup, the humble Volkswagen Beetle was one of his first family cars and that automotive bug has remained in him ever since. As a kid, Amit grew up watching his father rebuild a Royal Enfield Bullet from scratch in his living room and watching photos of extensive expeditions his father undertook in the 70s all across India and neighboring nations which is truly inspirational and still a challenge for him to beat.
His primary passions are anything automobile and motor racing (Read Formula-1). But for survival he has been forced to render some services to the IT Industry. After a long stint in Europe, Amit currently resides in Pune and owns the Mahindra XUV500 and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport. He also has a great passion for organic farming and is an avid nature lover; spending most of the time in his farm at weekends (which involves a lot of driving); chasing his both the passions.
The Automotive India happened one fine afternoon, thanks to Google and since then not a day has passed when Amit did not spend time on TAI. He aspires to take TAI to newer heights of success by making it one of the best online resources of information for anything related to cars and bikes. “The greatest strength of this community is the conducive and fair atmosphere that it maintains for automotive discussions and an ever-growing list of enthusiasts from various parts of the world who converge at this Automotive Mecca we proudly refer as The Automotive India” says Amit.
