Default Tarmac Auto-cross at Cochin on 26th, March

Hi guys,

Just wanted to let you all know that the next TARMAC Auto-cross is being held in Cochin on the 26th of this month.

All guys who can make it please do come. MAK(Motorsports Association of kerala) are running the event and some good drivers will be taking part. Lohit Urs ( MRF), Prithveen ( MRP) etc are a few of the proffessional drivers taking part not to forget Karthik Sankar the LGB Formula sensation. Some old timers like George Antony, jiju Alias, biki etc will also be there to watch out for. the track is roughly 1.3km and is defenitely faster than last time. Guess the average speed should be around 60km this time.

Any one interested in registering please feel free to call +91 9847182963 - Mr Philip. Last registration is Saturday(25th) 5:00 PM.

Have fun,

Karthik make another trip down this week end. I am sure it will be worth it. get the gang from there. Any doubts about the tarmac autocross please call Philip @ 9847182963.
And it is not something that only proffessional can take part in. Anyone can drive. Infact we have a few lady entries already.

Peter

If you give me a box for the Safari I will cancel my return ticket to Dubai and participate.

I might have participated even otherwise but the box would be an incentive to drop everything else and have fun!

BTW I had some fun with the Nissan X-trail on the drive to Tvm...couldnt keep up with him when he went over 150, but otherwise I was right there on his t(r)ail! Damn, I need that box.

Psycho where are you?????

I will know which of the 5 wires to do without in the next couple of days

While that takes care of the top-speed limit, we still need to work on that boost....

Hey Pete what about trying out a Terracan 2.9 litre box on the Safari? Loan Psycho one unit for R&D purposes and I will get you at least 5 buyers if it works.

Psycho knows already that it wont work. The connectors are different. The fuel maps are different.

I was actually asked by a friend to put in an entry - when I laughed it away saying you cant 'race' a 4WD, he said "why not? As long as you have 2 4WDs we have a new class to race in!"

If I werent leaving on Saturday night I would've liked to give it a shot
