Ok just got a reply frome Mr.Rasheed .. It seems they are having an advance training program on the 24th and 25th .. Cost for this is 20,000 .. I guess they will give you the technical jargon , and a few rounds in the LGB's to get used to the handling ..

However those who only wish to take part in the Shoot Out will have to send in a DD for 5,000 to the given address :
in the name of "MECO Motorsports Pvt Ltd" payable at Chennai to

So to get the full season Scholarship, YOU first need to pay 5k and then be among the lucky 2 to get selected? Sounds like a lottery for 5k!!
