Some of the younger members of our forum would be suprised to know that Tiff Needell (ex top gear, Fifth gear) was a participant, on more than one occasion, at sholavaram. And there was some fantastic wheel-to-wheel racing between Jim, tiff and Kari

The Raju / Raja twins were outstanding on the TZ's & RD's , perhaps its one of them on the TZ 125. I recall a TZ 500 in their garage, not sure if it was ever raced at sholavaram or sriperumbudur
