Question 2006 INRC Delhi round cancelled ?

Hey, After checking and then again rechecking I noticed that the Delhi round of the INRC has been cancelled from the Championship and that too after having the highest number of entries in 2005 .. I wonder why ??

The event was definitely very well organised with good stages both for competitors and spectators, can't think of any reason that lead to it being scrapped ?? Also I wonder why the Chd round of the INRC got the best organised rally for 2005, after having so many cases of rally cars being stoned in the stages, also rocks popping up in the middle of the stages around corners ... I wonder how they give points to events ???

Do I smell the usual politics here as well ??? I wonder ....

Anybody who can throw light on this ....

Cheers

First off... why does everyone here with a "SCOOP" think that there's some major conspiracy going on or some political pull...can things never be what they seem?
Are we in this country as messed up in our heads as the yanks?
Having said that.. lets just wait and see why the round was cancelled instead of throwing up our own theories and "reasons"

Hey, I don't see no reason for being messed up in our heads ... Its a very simple and straight forward thing !! Well run event ... sponsor still there .... organisers still there ... but no event ... do u see something in that or does one need to be blunter for you to understand ?

Anyways this thread was started to see if there was anyone who cud throw light in this issue .. instead of me believing what was told to me as the reason yesterday by someone who organises one of the best motorsport events in this country !! Coz if that is the reason then its another thumbs down for the concerned authorities ... time they pack their bags and retire and let somebody else take over ......

Cheers

I heard that APRC is coming back to India this year and probably they did'nt want to manage too many events.

MAI has asked all the clubs wanting to organise a INRC event to pay 1Lakh caution deposit .. clubs that have paid are in the Calender .... Delhi has not paid and thats why its not there in the calender .. thats the official stand.

Haryan, I don't thing payment has anything to do with the matter. More a case of safey and other organising problems.
