Thumbs up Tarmac race in Cochin!

Guys,

There's a tarmac race going to happen soon in Cochin. The Venue has been decided and it's just wonderful! Yes, Cochin International airport.
It will be held on January 12-13 2007.

As of now, I am not much aware of more details, class etc...
I know that the prices offered include trips to London and Dubai.

Will keep you updated.

Well, sorry for my ignorance here. But what exactly is a tarmac race?

Is it like circuit racing? Or is it like rallies? Or, is it like Autocross where stock cars are allowed?

This race has happened for the last two years - contact Pete (Turboindia on teh forum) for more details as he is involved in organizing the event.

The airport is not shut down as the race is NOT inside the airport. The race happens in the parking lot of the airport (before you laugh there's about 7 km of parking space tarmac at the airport in total, with some sharp corners, fast curves and great straights).

Its good fun!
