Here's a video of the Y2K bike in action. Turn UP the volume!!



Unfortunately, the bike could not complete a 400m run despite several attempts. What it did was entertain us with this vicious engine note.

Hi!

Any idea who was the rider, riding the Y2K? It sure didn't appear like Gadson.

And please, can someone post the list? (The winners & consecutive 2nd, 3rd placed fellas in all categories)

It was one of the best events organised, clean and nothing to complain about.

We had got one RD from bangalore, after a tense fight we manged to take the top honours in our categories, both in the M2 class and the Indian Open as well as the fastest time of the day by a Indian bike Trophy, times were a little off as compared to earlier times, our tuner and rider Antony from DAM motors pulled off a 12.9 in the final run, a real great event, looking forward to many more in the future.

It was a good event for the bikes. But the cars it was a total screw up! The runs of the bentley phantom etc was overkill should of kept it till the end so people would of actually stayed.

We finally clocked a national record breaking 13.5 secs in the Indian Pro-Stock 1650cc category with our Honda City Vtec. With both me and my friend clocking ditto times.

His was the Blue OHC with Motorev written on it.

The event was well organised but I would say not well planned.

The crowd was not engaged at any point of time except when the big cars and SBK's came (not more than 30 mins in the whole day) . The whole time the entire crowd was getting bored. Even an hour sitting at the stands felt like eternity.

The Bentleys and RR's and SUV's (Cayenne) made it even more boring. The jarring dubstep and lack of information displays made matters worse for the crowd. Y2K was a big let down as it stalled in the middle of its run sputtering a blue smoke . Very few supercars had come , we expected atleast 15-20 but there were only 2. However , I enjoyed clicking the pics and drags of Lambos and GTR's and SBK's.

Joels MotoRev and one white Evo/lancer were the one to watch in Indian Cars. Bikes were as usual more fun than cars

Hoping it will be more fun next year.

Mod note - Only 2 smileys allowed per post.
