So would have liked to. My exams are 7 to 12 which makes it impossible. Still, sounds like a really good deal for someone who has never been in a car with a professional driver goig sideways half the time

Could be more than one driver. However link doesn't disclose anything about their driver/s.

I suggest whoever booked, to take two continuous slots for Rs. 1000/-. Trust me, that 3 kms will finish in less than 3 minutes and you will NOT be able to recollect anything about the drive - it will end as soon as it starts. So take two slots and ask them to combine both so that you can enjoy the excitement well. And it's addictive!

True and if possible, talk to them to do one forward and one reverse in a single shot. Will be more fun.

This is awesome! Lucky you Banglorites

Wish something like this starts closer to Pune/Mumbai. I'm so happy the Indian racing / motorsport scene improving so much with us normal people getting such an amazing chance to experience the racing / rallying world.

The Buddh circuit track day was so cost effective plus this too is very VFM! India is becoming the place to be if you love cars now! Me likes.

How was the turnout? Were there enough takers? Hope it's repeated again.
