C'mon guys. Rs.5,000/- is peanuts to pay if you feel you're good enough. If they had made this a free for all, they would have every Tom, dick & Harvinder turning up for a few free laps in the single seater.

@madan, its 20K for the 2 days course. Only 5K for the try outs.

Well.. Thats true. Initially I was thinking a more reasonable amount (Rs 500-Rs 1000) is sufficient to turn away the non serious contenders. But then, LGB looks like a serious piece of machine.. probably they priced to keep away the Go-Karting crowd too.

ive never done any kind of racing i am quiet decent with the go carts in hiranandani got
is there a chance i ll benifit from this thing?
i d like to get into racing lgb s but a rwd car is kinda tricky with a nice power to weight ratio
would it make sense other than the fun aspect ?

Paras, when are you reaching bangalore. If possible you could hitch a ride with us from bangalore itself.
