Lost of fun and excitement at the first ever FMSCI specs drag race held in north on Sunday August 27, 2016.Location was a drag strip at Buddh International Circuit Complex. The main F1 Track does not have enough length to allow for full quarter mile drag.

Fastest biker on the track was Rizwan with timing on 11.118 seconds and the driver was Swatic Vivek Ruia with timing of 12.818 seconds.

Timing was done using VGONext timing system that is used in rally and races. With total of approximately 170 races run during the day.

First all participants were given two runs at qualifying in their group class and best of the two time was taken to choose top four (or top two if the racers were less than four) for pre-final / final drags.

All the qualifying results are here:

You do mean March surely? Also, would be able to get which make/model bike/car they were riding/driving? 11.118 for bikes seems a second off the pace that we see at other drags, what gives?

Hello all

It was a very well organised event held at BIC with help of sudev sir. Officials ensured that there was no lapse in security, all drivers were made to wear all safety gears. Looking forward for more events of these types, here are some snaps which i took from my phone.

The event was fun and I ended up winning with my car, but as you can see in Video 2 that's me on the street triple and it was my first run. I ended up jumpstarting because I expected the christmas tree to work like a regular christmas tree. For some reason the first three yellows and the green had nothing to do with each other and were not in sequence. Liked I said earlier Sudev you should get that changed for sure because it doesn't make any sense and I'd like to believe I lose my chance at the bike trophy because of it

Some experts and commentators have opined that a bit of variable time to green change should be kept. Difference between anticipation and reaction to green.

Anyways have noted your point and will research on best method before the next event.
