Another update:

All cars will have to meet the minimum weight of 950kg. There is no distinction between Vtec and Non-Vtec.

You cannot expect the results before hand... first you have to Sponsor and the event takes place and at the end of it you get to know the results...
And i dont think you need 6 months to modify a car... Unless you plan to build one like akshay said...

Anyone else willing to participate and already preparing for this event ???....

Agreed Jay... But before you sponsor a car.. dont you think you should atleast have a background on the driver and the car.. If he is known in the circuit.. How comfortable he is with the vehicle.. Can he handle the power??????
All these are considered before a sponsor puts his money in it..

Totally Agree with what you have said above, but since you had mentioned that if the results are good then one can sponsor, i had a different opinion.
But then again even with the above details known about the driver and the car, nothing can be said for certain... you never know. one can sponsor if he has faith in the driver and his car and thinks his money would be put to good use...

Still no Reply about people willing to participate and already preparing for this event ???

The venue for the event will be the coimbatore and the chennai tracks .. Talks about holding a few street races also going around .. There are atleast 4 new classes being introduced from what I hear .. Almost on the same lines based on the drag classifications .. Though still in discussion stages are the following :
1. NA upto 1600 class with weight restriction of 950kgs+ for all the vehicles ..
2. Forced Induction class upto 1600cc ..
3. Indian Open where any car chassi can be mated to any production Indian engine .. Though a roll cage , 4 point non recliner seat and a few other rules are mandatory ..

Yes , I am looking seriously at taking part in this season .. Atleast for a race or two if I cant find sponsors .. Also as a part of the tuners special psycho might be building a car which will be driven by v1p3r .. Yes , we are looking for sponsors and anyone interested in doing so will be higly appreciated and we shall be thankful to them ..

We have the tuning talent as speedrun results have proved it , I know track racing is a different ball game but we are working on getting our setups right .. And from the lap times across the track days , we have the driver talent amongst us too .. What we need is more testing time on track and money to get to build the cars accordingly which is one point we are lacking now .. Atleast I am ..
