The white thing on my pant is the pager which is famous those days. My normal speed on this car is 180 to 220 kms per hour. My top speed covered is 265 kph which is the maximum speed of the car. I need to do 400 kms per day and so I try to do it at short time. Now in 2008 when I calculated the distance that I covered during the testing of this car time For almost 4 years I had circled the world around 11 times. Am really proud of testing this car as before the launch in this world and one of the best safety car from Sweden. This I did as a hobby apart from my professional Photography work as I like driving
This is in Sripermandur Race track. The first inaugural race done by me and the Last race for me in 1990. In 1991 there was No race as the war had started in Kuwait and Iraq. This is because of the petrol shortage and they stopped the race just a week before which was very disappointing for me where I wanted to retire from racing after that. But that was not possible so I ended my Bike racing career in 1990. The Race dress is stitched to my body fit and I bought the leather, die it to my colour and then tailored to my style, the gloves and the shoes. Of course I pained the helmet also.
