It was surely a great chance to try our cars, max out the potentinal. I had participated with my OHC VTEC 2000 and E46- 325i Manual, both fully stock. My VTEC was up against Modded Honda city, ivtec and few other cars. E46, was however was up against a BMW Z4, CLA 43 AMG, Turbo Charged and Jaguar F type Supercharged, since all of them had engine capacity less than 3000cc.

Sharing the videos of the run.

Aj-got-bhp- I was there on saturday and had I known that other bhpians would also be coming I would have surely met you guys.

About the drag races, I was surprised to see that the ameo 1.5 lost out to the verna as VWs usually have penomenal in gear acceleration. It is even more surprising to know that it had a tuning box installed. Was the verna that beat in the 1st round and also took 1st place in that category also running with a tuning box?

There is another Drag Event coming up in Kolkata sometime in February 2017. Seeing BHPian dip27in, I guess a lot of BHPians from Kolkata would be inclined to participate in the upcoming event including yourself with your EcoSport Titanium

Yes the Ameo 1.5 AT was installed with Race Dynamics Diesel Tronic. But if you see the spec sheet carefully, you will realize that the Reaction Time (RT) of Ameo was way too slow to set off to drag; which I presume costed him to be knocked out. There is always a next time though

I am always up for a drag, but in this event, my car was put in the upto 1750CC class where i don't even have a chance. There are much more powerful diesel engines and lighter sedans/hatches which fall in this bracket. Add to that the 5000rs participation fee was a little too expensive for my blood. I wouldn't have bothered to participate just for the heck of it was it priced 1-2k.

Coming to the Ameo, i didn't see the timings on the result tables you provided. I guess it got knocked out in the prelims. Moreover the RT depends on the driver & not the car, and will get better with more & more practice

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
