Rally …. yes it’s me

Though there had been enough opportunities earlier to be part of a rally, was never inlined to participate in one such “Time-Speed-Distance” rallies. But this sunday, 27th April’08, i had given my name with a friend of mine (NL) for the Mahindra World City Car Rally (aka Treasure Hunt).

I’m not sure why is it called a Treasure Hunt, though.

I can see the smirk on the faces of you guys…. but never mind. 🙂

It was really interesting to navigate ( yes i got NL to drive, owing to the fact that my geography & maths are better than him, or rather i convinced him that way & he likes to drive). We started at 830 hrs at YMCA grounds Nandanam and took a route through Chamiers Road, TTK road, Bheemanna Garden Road, Warren Road, Chamiers road again, Kotturpuram, Madhya Kailash, Velachery Road, Pallikaranai Junction, Medavakkam road, Selaiyur Road, GST Road, MM Nagar & reached Mahindra World City.

We were really doing well as per the time, speed and reasonable on distance till we took the left at MM nagar (the last few KMs of the 60 odd KMs rally) then we lost our way inside the no-man’s land and went in circles and atlast we reached the Finishing point somehow after atleast 20-30 mts delay.

Anti-climax, we still got the 8th place. Either we did really well till we lost the way or the others did equally bad. ;-).

I now have a 3-4 months supply of Fiama De Wills toiletries as gift …… any takers at a discounted rate? reach me soon …. till stocks last …..

P.s. : Also heard that i won a raffle yesterday at the “Catholic Women Fellowship of Madras” for the coupons i bought a few months back for my colleagues charity work.
