Seems like Mcl knows more than anyone else. Lol.

But seriously, Mclaren, i would suggest you not to add in bits and pieces that are not finalised yet, as this would only cause confusion.

Wait a few days for the regulations to be finalised, after which they will be posted here.

Ok, so when will the few days be? like it has been pointed out, there will be significant amount of work and rework required for a fully open class race!

Basic regulations are already given on the first thread. They essentially stay the same. A few additional classes are left to be decided, with the appropriate regulations for them. We are trying to blend the rally N+ and drag race regulations together so as to allow drivers to use the same car in various events (if they want to) with minimal changes, consequently reducing costs considerably.

Well maybe then you ought to keep filling us in on more details frequently to update our knowledge then .. Atleast the TUNERS who were invited for the meet seem to be telling this story .. And I have heard this news from 3 of those that attended the meet .. So may we know when the rules will be out so that we can stop all this speculation ??

Dude, the regs are not going to be some secret! Once the organiser has finalised them, they will be published. Just adding bits and pieces here will not help anything except maybe misguide someone. For example, you say a forced induction class upto 1600cc. Now person X goes ahead and takes that as a class. Begins to order parts etc. Next thing he see's that this class did not make it to the final regulations. He is not going to be a happy guy now is he.

The Meeting was held to get people's opinion on things. this now has to be studied and passed through various people for approval, to check the feasablity etc. Its not as simple as you make it out to be! You may be able to post any rumour or discussion you might have overheard as you are not responsible for anything at the end of it. Some of us cannot be so free with what we post, as the consequences are higher for posting information that may lead to a situation mentioned above.

This is gonna be really interesting. Am actually contemplating on buying an used esteem and transforming it to track spec's. I figure the car alone would cost around 1.5L and another 1L in modifications. Lets see how this goes.

this is awesome, finally MAI has woken up from its long sleep.
As this would be a circuit race there will be more spectators and which might bring in some sponsors.

Looking forward to what people come up with for the Indian open class. Someone said any car body mated to an Indian engine. Can Rtech or someone else clarify the definition of "any car body": is it any "production" body or is that open? If its the latter then I foresee the halcyon days of Indian track racing coming back just like it was in the early days: Formula Indians battling it out with the saloons.

Ananth, I am sorry for that bit of info about the Indian Open. I was made to believe so but I could be wrong (though news was from a very trusted source, and no it wasn't psycho). However, let us wait till monday until which date final regs will be put up to end all speculation.

Production body. Nope, no single seaters battling it out with Saloons.

Bad news though. Press conference canceled due to certain people not being bale to make it into town because of the heavy rains lashing the western coast.

However, I will post up the classes sometime today.
