Ha ha okay here you go 350Z!
The previous day of the meet i gave my Verna a good wash and made her look clean. Previously it was looking horrible thanks to the rains while doing highway runs! And man , as time passed my excitement kept growing! I din sleep till 5:30AM the next day , so much excited on going to meet all guys again after long time along with few more new buddies! The next day woke up at 8:00AM and got ready by 9:00AM. Called my friend Saravana Prasad to check whether he has started from home , it takes a 40 mins highway drive for him to reach my home. And he said he had just started. Got a call from Zinam saying we will meet at the same spot like last time at 9:30AM.
Meanwhile got an SMS from Ilango he will not be able to make it to the meet saying his Lancer is having some problems and its a risk driving it to Chennai , i asked him to take the risk and leave the vehicle for service after reaching here!
Meanwhile , got a call from Debayan and said he will come in my car and park his RTR in my home , i guided him to my home and he reached on time. My parking lot is just a narrow passage and my Verna was parked inside! Had to take out my Safari first park it outside, then neighbours's Manza and then my Verna! Then combined with Debayan and went to the spot where me and Zinam planned to meet.
I reached the spot and called Zinam. He said he will be there in 5 minutes. As said he came there in his sparkling i10 black beauty clean and shining after a wax coat! He came along with his colleague Surya. A damn crow **** was there in my car's bonnet which i noticed it just now. Bought a water packet from a nearby shop and cleaned it immediately!
After that me , Zinam , Surya and Debayan were waiting for my friend Saravana to arrive! It was around 10:00 AM and still my friend din arrive! It normally takes only 40 mins for him but he din arrive even after an hour! Called him up and he said he was held up in a traffic jam near his place and he crossed a toll booth and will be there in 15 minutes. Then we were having some interesting chats within ourselves. It was almost 10:30AM now and still my friend din arrive!
Again i called him up and he said that a major accident had occurred in that highway and he was stranded in a bridge for more than 15 minutes without moving an inch! He said that a tipper truck carrying quarry boulders lost both its rear wheels , dashed into another similar truck and that truck in turn toppled and all the boulders were lying on the road! He said the vehicles were being moved away with cranes and boulders were being removed from the road onto the medians. He said it will take more than 30 minutes for him surely! Meanwhile got a call from Surendar that he has reached Poonamalee already and he is waiting for us! We explained to him that we will be a bit late and asked him to proceed towards the race track and we will meet there.
Then asked Zinam and others whether they had any breakfast. All others except Debayan were empty-stomach like me! I explained the situation to them and so we decided to have breakfast somewhere and pass the time till he arrives. We decided to have breakfast at Hot Chips vegetarian restaurant a few kms away from our place. And we decided to leave in Zinam's car itself. That was the first time i was hearing music in his car from his Eclipse HU and Infinity speakers , and they were amazing! It sounded great even without an amp!
Thanks to Zinam's spirited driving we reached the restaurant in few minutes itself! We decided to have light food which was readily available and Debayan said he needed only juice. We then had our food and after that only i realized i had Pranay's number with me! I immediately called him and he said he is already on the way to the race track. We explained to him that we will be a little late due to the above mentioned reasons and i gave Surendar's number to him saying he will be there in the race track soon enough. Meanwhile again got an SMS from Ilango saying his car is in running condition now and he will be coming to the meet in his Lancer!
We then proceeded to the same spot we met first again soon enough thanks again to Zinam's spirited driving! Again called my friend and he told he has reached here finally! I took my car went along with Debayan to pick up my friend and then reached back and combined with Zinam. We were ready to move finally towards the race track and it was 11:00AM already! The first super saloon race was at 11:30AM!
Both of us had low fuel in our rides and so decided to fill it up together at a petrol bunk towards the race track. Hope i din bore you! Rest of the report to be continued!
