Last two were not on the list. Good thing you put it up here.

Are you guys non-flexible on the fixed-back racing seat?

Fixed back is mandatory for safety reasons. Its simply not safe without that. However, I think there would be a few people who would even rent these out. I know its done a few times for the rallies.

Have the fees and schedules been firmed up? Is it possible to enter only one race, instead of the whole season?

Dont see why not, happens all the time, but your biggest expense will be preparing the car...after that you should'nt spend too much per race.

used FISSMEs go for less than a lakh, in this case you are talking at least 7-8 times that cost with some expensive engine rebuilds. Even indian rallying cancelled this class because it was too expensive.

Dont worry ba , we have this covered .. You could borrow one from us .. But roll cage ka kya karega ?? Planning to order for one bolt on roll cage by next week .. Or does anyone know if they are readily available for the balenos and wht price ??

Also dont see y one cant take part in a single race , its allowed in all the other categories if im right .. Hopefully we could soon have another new baleno joining us ..

If it's gonna happen in / around / near Bombay, I'm in too. Yes, with my Lancer. Yes, with the missing cylinder. Just for the heck of it. viper, heeeere I come...

Odds of winning all depend on how much money we get for sponsorship as the mods are almost unrestricted so take loads of green notes , sponsored cars will run decals of the sponsorer along with other marketing benefits ..
