Hmmm, this is going to be fun. Looking forward to trying these out. Only doubt is, do I fit in any of these? Does 6 feet and 85Kgs sound like a match to any of these?

The above cars come with usable tires, and hope I don't need to book separately?

And then like mclaren and v1p3r said, I cant believe nobody else wants to try out these cars?

Yes the cars all come with usable tyres. Tyres which are available for rent can be used on your own vehicles. Will save you a lotta heartache and money. Ask the regulars, they'll tell you.

Good one there, nitrous.
BTW, that snap was of Bheema from the Kumbha Bharani festival at the Chettikulangara temple near my home in Kerala - a big event every year with Bheema, Hanuman, Draupadi etc coming in a procession to the temple. Will post some snaps in the non-auto thread.

The working comittee met this evening and it has been decided to open the full track for cars and bikes on both Saturday and Sunday. I hope this is going to satisfy one and all.

Look forward to seeing you guys.

All sessions for saloon cars and bikes will be run on the full track.

Single seaters alone will be run on the short loop.

Tyres are posing to be a bit of a problem. We are working on getting as many sets as possible, and will let you all know regarding availability and pricing in the next few days. But these will have to be booked and paid for in advance as there will only be a few sets.

We are also working on getting some sets of used road tyres (some high speed rated goodyears, michelins, yoko's etc..) for sale at the track. We are xpecting a price of around 100-150 per tyre. this way you guys can save your own tyres. let us know what you guys think about this idea.

More info soon.

Renting tires would be a good idea! it would also be a logistical nightmare. A suggestion would be that all those who confirm, also tell you what are the tyre sizes they need, that would give you a rough ball park on what sizes ad what numbers need to be organized!

This would be awesome .. That way we could buy the tyres and use them for further track days too .. If you do get ur hands on any set with profiles 195/60/14 or 195/55/15 do let me know .. And wow , it would be lovely to run on the long loop this time .. Also how many session will we be given transponders for ??
