Exclamation JK or MRF?

What are your views guys? Will JK kick MRF's 'rubber' again this year?? Does MRF have the drivers to contain the JK Duo (Vikram Mathias and Naren Kumar)?

Getting away with what? The are people who do what is called technical scrutiny to the top finishers.

Just think back... a couple of years ago JK Tyres was BANNED from racing because they were not using their own tyres to race on.. if memory serves me correct... they were using AVON's.
Last year, they were disqualified from a round in the INRC for their cars not passing post event sctutiny... in case you cant see.. theres a pattern here.. hope that answers your question, and with regards to your feelings... well your entitled to it.. the same way I am entitled to mine

Not sure about them using avon tyres, but as far as last year was concerned, it was due to a mis-understanding between JK and MAI that led to JK using the upgraded rear suspension. I am not at liberty to discuss this issue, but i can tell you for sure that JK had written permission from the concerned sourses that they COULD go ahead and use the disputed rear suspension. They didnt contest it beacause ALL of us know the differences between MIA and FMSCI. The other reason being that it was their first comeback race. And you are right, all these are just our opinions......

Dude.. this is not some super secret james bond kind of thing that you have to say your not at "LIBERTY" to discuss this issue.. then why did you start a thread that you knew would cause controvercy?
And your point of the MAI and the FMSCI has any relavence to this "reasoning" of yours .. WHY??

I would generally cheer for Team JK Tyre .. But this time my loyalties will be divided as TWO of my good friends have been chosen to drive for Team MRF in 1400's ... and i have one very close friend of mine in Team JK Tyre ..

Hey that's great news. What class will the Cedia run in, since its 1.8 liter it cannot be pitted against the Balenos, can it.

Also the Swift will probably run in 1400 class I presume.

Let me guess, JK is running the Cedia and MRF the Swift.
