Visited the venue today... One thing is for sure, this is something much bigger and better than the so called Vaahan Yaatra. The space itself is maybe 20-times bigger than VY, there is more important manufacturer level participation. Only thing is most of the stalls looked incomplete behind schedule considering it is being inaugarated tomorrow around 9.30 am. Spoke to a few people and they maintained that the work would be finished on time since their guys will be burning the midnight oil. There are test tracks (?!) too being put up by Yamaha and Suzuki AFAIK.

Expecting a good show considering the constraints most people are running under.

Test tracks?? That sounds exciting. Will the tracks be the ones which was used by Freeway19 long time back. Not too sure if the karting track still exists. Its been years since I have entered that area.
