Default Nandi Hill Climb, Bangalore - 20th to 22nd Jan 2015

The legendary hill climb event is back at Nandi Hills. Hope to see many of you there. Had no idea the FIA supported this event.

As always, it is on weekdays which makes it difficult for us enthusiasts to attend

Since it is run on public roads and by blocking traffic to allow three to five runs and then reopening the road for traffic, there is no choice but to run it on a weekday. Public traffic on a weekend will be too heavy to get time for hill climb runs.

The hill climb motor sports event returns to Nandi Hills after a three-year gap. Rechristened `Race To Thunder Head', the event will be held from January 2022. While the two-wheeler event -competition for which will be held in 18 categories -will be held on Wednesday (Jan 21), the four-wheeler event * in 13 categories * will be held on Thursday (Jan 22). For entries, call Avinash Gowda or Sunith Jason .
Wow such future planning!

Apparently the event for today did not happen, some spectator mishap leading the cops to cancel the permission given earlier.
