So will the autocross during the same event or will this be a different event? Things are finally looking up for the eastern part of the country. Such events will hopefully allow the people of Kolkata to fully understand their potential behind the wheel in a safe environment and keep the dangerous stuff of the streets!

Both will be different events !! Kolkata should see some growth in performance upgrades w.r.t. the Car Accessories Market and give some scope for the Tuners to come forth in the limelight before the masses.

Excellent report Arav! Hearty congratulations to Debdeep, Sushil and Sumit.
I could not join either as a competitor or spectator due to office commitments. Hopefully will participate/join next time.

Also, there is an AutoCross event that i hear which is there in the pipeline for Kolkata enthusiasts ! Looking forward to get further update on that too.

The scene in the East definitely seems to be changing; for the good
Maybe a seperate thread would be ideal to get everyone to notice the upcoming events better & support with participation

I participated too! It was great fun!

Good event overall. Any of the participants going for the Full Throttle drag?

I actually saw this run up close. Was surprised with the Ameo run also.

Is the Ameo gearbox slow to set off by design?

I guess it is because the Ameo was an Automatic Transmission and the driver was not accustomed to the car being very new to him.
