Did this too. My notes-
Cars are setup for individual preferences. I'd personally have setup my car differently.
Touchy setup on my car. Spun out twice and still ended up with best lap time of 2.41.
Cars are really peppy, but tuned to a very peaky powerband, hit the peak at the middle of corner entry and u will spin...

No offence, but if your overweight, I'd avoid doing this activity as the seats, belts etc are really tight.

Helmet is included in fee. No additional charges. Arrive, pay money n deposit, n drive. get out of car when done.. go home with a ear to ear grin on ur face. Simple!

Thanks for the update mate! Do they keep a log of everyone's lap times? Would be nice to see where you stand after your assigned laps.

In such a scenario of any damage (minor damage ) to car bumpers etc . what is the cost implication on the driver?

Is this program still going on? One of my friend was waiting for an opportunity like this, I forgot to mention him about the Open Track Day which happened on 4th May, so need to find him an alternative :(

Man, that is sweet pricing! They're now offering an hour for about the same $$$ as a 30 minute session cost earlier (i.e. 12K).

Questions -
1. If I take my wife along do I have to pay anything extra for her to be the co-passenger?
2. Would the passengers be allowed to record videos from their cellphones?

I think it is a must have experience!
For folks in Delhi, this is sweet deal!
One track day on a stock car, you can be sure to finish at least 2 tyres.

The cost is sweet for sure!
A stiff chasis with a race suspension is any day better than the stock setup

Great run Prithwi!
Do you have a go pro video with you?
Would love to see that if available!

My brother had done the nurburbring nordschleife for four laps at INR 50,000.The deposit was a bank breaking INR 5,00,000.

So an hour at BIC for 10k-15k, doesn't sound bad at all!
