its not as simple as saying the guy who will train the drivers will know what his/her skill level is but what i said was that if u put a normal person in a rotax it will be like teaching someone how to drive on a 800bhp car... which can be done but is not advisable

i doubt its gonna be a 15 day camp .. i reckon its either gonna bea 3 day camp that will cost would 30 grand ... or max to max a 5 day course that will cost you arnd 50 grand or so (AkKU has never taken a 5 day racing course ..
And the couse will be conducted at KARI Motor speedway , not at the sriperembudur track at chennai . And they will be using the f-Lgb cars either running 1.5 hyundai engines or 1.3 l maruti mpfi engines ...

Nope, still not able to get through. The phone keeps ringing, it then diverts the call to another line and then goes blank.

Not sure if he's got a new nuber or what.
