Default Report & Pics: "Roaring Champions" - Drag Racing Series! 6th & 7th June, 2015 at Mumbai

NOTE : This report was actually compiled on 8th June, 2015.

Mumbai witnessed a second round of drag racing this year. While the first one was held in January at the Aamby Valley airstrip near Lonavala, this one was held at Yashwant Smart City, Vasai, about 60 km from Mumbai. On day 1, despite the scorching heat, the event witnessed a pretty healthy turnout of participants. The event was held over 2 days i.e. 6 - 7 June, 2015.

Team-BHP was invited for the event, and BHPian S2!!! & I have covered it on both days.

The track was a newly laid concrete surface. It was not exactly even:

The MC got the crowd going when the sensors were being worked on:

Screens kept the crowd informed about the proceedings:

The action on Day 2 started with the superbikes:

But the day was actually ruined by rain. Superbikes had lined up for their final run, but the heavens opened up and the marshals decided that it was not safe to let them run. The disappointment is evident on the riders' faces:

Meanwhile, a familiar face visits the event:

The organisers tried to dry the track by running cars on it. Star attraction was undoubtedly this Lamborghini Aventador which did a few solo runs:

I had mentioned earlier that the track was uneven. This is what I mean:

That's a pretty fast exit speed:

BHPian Ford Rocam had a run as well, but it didn't go too well:

This R8 lined up for a run and got the crowd on the edge of their seats. However, the rain just kept coming down and ruined things. The sensors needed to be removed:

The organisers decided that bikes wouldn't run unless the conditions were safe enough and cars wouldn't run for another 90 minutes at least. It was already dark and we were completely soaked. We hung around for a while waiting for some good news, but there was none. So that was the end of that.

What an awesome report! I love this way of covering events, pics and one liners - completely engrossed before i realised i'd run out of it. Sad that it didn't go as planned. Can we get some vids too? Would have loved to see the GTR run.

Thank you Aditya & S2! Looking forward to more of such coverage.

Great coverage S2 and Aditya. Would love to witness such an event in reality. Could you let me know how to get the info before hand?
It must have been a treat to your ears and eyes, we definitely want to see a few videos.

Question: Would it be possible to give the car names along with winners, at least for the H3 category?
