Approx 3hours,keeping in mind the south mumbai and pune traffic.
oh damn....i cant b a part of this visit am gonna b outta the country again ....hope those going have a good trip and turns out to be a fruitful visit.
From Andheri - FIAT factory it takes approx 3hrs - max 3.5 hrs with one chai stop. The route is to take the exit @ the second expressway toll (Talegaon) cross the old Mumbai-Pune Highway - Chakan - Shikrapur - Ranjangaon. I am attaching the route for info.
Guys : The meeting point is going to be somewhere in Pune. We will have breakfast and then proceed to factory. Mumbai guys therefore have to enter Pune
I'm new around here, and am not sure of how things happen on this forum.
But I'd suggest that the meeting point/breakfast point be somewhere on the outskirts of Pune and even better it was along the route to Ranjangaon. Reason being entering Pune city and syncing up for breakfast and that too on a working day might be a bit difficult considering traffic and availability of a parking space.
That way the folks coming in from Mumbai don't have to enter the city and people don't waste time entering/exiting/getting lost in the city
Just a thought!
My wife is not in for the game. So I have asked for my friends if they would be interested. Is it OK to bring my friends (3 or 4) along or is it strictly for the Fiat Owners ???
Extracted from first post.
Some important points:
This visit is open for all TFI Members, their friends & relatives etc.
Families, spouses, kids are welcome. However do note that the premises is huge and one has to walk considerable distances. Small children, elders with disabilities might find it physically challenging.
In 2010, Fiat had applied "FIAT" sticker to all member cars on the right & left front doors. They may do the same this time too! The stickers look quite cool and only those who had been to the factory get those
Breakfast and lunch are taken care of by Fiat. The hospitality they displayed in 2010 was phenomenal and everybody had walked back impressed
Don't worry : that is how it will be
For down south it will be a drive - Bangalore Pune 837km 12hrs journey.. we have to start Thursday morning to reach there by evening plan could be
1. 6th Dec Start in the morning reach Pune by evening
2. 7th Dec Start to Factory back in the evening
3. 8th Dec Start in the morning reach Bangalore by evening .. Rest on 9th Sunday start fresh to office on Monday..
Will the meet point be VITS again??
