Sorry, that mistake was mine, and you are right, I mistook track rentals for bike rentals...

Gentlemen, I am sure you are going to be a very happy bunch. Please find our rental rates as under:-

Race set up Esteems - Saloon Class - Rs.1000 for 5 Laps (Long loop - Approx time 15min, Approx Distance - 19 Kms).

FISSME - Formula Class - Rs.500 For 5 Laps (Short Loop - Approx Time 10 Min, Approx Distance - 11 Kms).

FLGB SWIFT - Formula Class - Rs.700 for 5 Laps (Short Loop - Approx Time 10Min, Approx Distance - 11kms).

PLease note - Race esteems will be run on the long loop i.e. full track and the formula class will be run on the short loop only.

Pricing for 10 laps will be double the amount. Apart from the rental for the car, there will be an additional track hire charge. Track hire will be waived if you have registered for the day / weekend.

Since we have limited hardware we would advise you to book in advance to avoid dissapointment. Please PM / Mail me for further details. Please do not SMS me. I will not be able to keep a record of your request. Either PM or Mail.

Thank you.

Farhan, that's a sweet deal! Just some clarifications: what would the track hire charge be? And what does registering for the day/weekend mean?

Fingers crossed!

Akshay, isn't it past yor bed time !!!?????

Anyway since you have asked, I would request you to please refer to Post # 66, where price details for track hire have been mentioned.

If you guys turn up in a group of 10 and over rate per 30 minute session will be 300 (400 for ten and below and for non members). By non members I mean those who are not members of the MMSC.

And if you register and pay for the entire day / weekend (4 x 30 minute sessions per day and / or 8 x 30 minute sessions for the weekend), you can hire any of the rental cars and pay the rental charges only. Track rental for that session will be adjusted accordingly.

We have 5 race esteems, 6 FLGB Swifts, 10 FISSME's and 3 FLGB Hyundai's.

Uncross em fingers me Mate.

I'm awake engaging in nefarious activities to pay for track day!

What I mean is, how does it work if I come only to drive the Formulas or race Esteems? Then, to avoid rental, how many sessions do I have to put in?

Fingers crossed that I can get my car.

Alright, as an example: -

Renting a FISSME for 5 laps will cost you 500(this goes to the owner of the car - Car Rental) + 300/400(this amount goes to the club - Track rental) i.e. total cost will be either 800 or 900. If you turn up in a group of 10 or more (which I am hoping you will) Track rental will be 300 (As offered to members of MMSC), otherwise it will be 400 (Non members / group of less than 10).

Now, if you turn up with your own car and pay track hire for the whole day, you have already paid for track rental, therefore you can choose to rent our hardware instead of driving your car (for that session). Track rental (which you have already paid), will therefore be adjusted. So you will need to only pay Rs.500 - Car rental.

I hope this answers all your questions. Looking forward to seeing you here.

Thanks Farhan, that cleared it up. One last question: does track rental work per car or per head?

Per head / per session (or Day / weekend[2 days])

Therefore if you rent a FISSME for 5 laps, you will complete the laps in 10 minutes. You still have 20 minutes left. You can either sit the session out or go ahead and rent another formula. We will not be able to adjust the balance 20 minutes in another session. Please also remeber that the Formulas will run in independant sessions and will not be combined with your personal cars and Race esteems. This is being done, keeping in mind safety issues etc.

OK ?

Yes, and I remember why this rule was brought about in the first place!
