Not as yet. They're still doing it in parts. Not to mention all stray two-wheelers on road. Beware of tractors especially. They come from nowhere.

Hi,
The best part is only in the start of the 6 lane. About 6 - 8 kms before divisions starts.... We have our races on this part of the highway.

Cheers

Make it early in the morn, a few mins after sunrise. Never race yor car on cold tyres, cold engine and morning dew still on the track.

I always rip at around 7.30 - 8 am.

Hey,
I heard theres a nice road closer, no traffic too!, after the jakkur aerodrome, you get a gas pump to your right, take the first right after that, i heard the road is totally straight, new asphalt and pretty much no traffic and disturbance... havent tested it out myself... hopefully this weekend.

Cheers
Dom

Hey Tom,

Looking at this discussion I was reminded that this new year night I blew the conti's petrol tank on the same stretch, its like a jigsaw puzzle till date Wide Road - Switch to oncoming lane - move back and just hope that you dont go into one of the ditches after the sign... not to mention no lighting.

Gawd I could do better on a comp game.
