Hi Jassi, The slicks are available in chennai. I have posted a picture of the slicks in my earlier posts. They are not regular road tires but hard compound race tires used on the race esteems on the track.

Generally the slicks are around 7-10 yrs old, used and have enough tread to last around 100 laps (hard driving) and grip really well (dunno about grip on wet tarmac cos its raining on and off in chennai now).

Size is 185/60/13. Will check if rims are also available and will post in a few hours along with price details.

Please note that these are only available in tube type and in the above size and in USED condition only.

I think its the 250m drag that is being planned for a long time.
Don't know if its in the main straight or the back straight.

Boys, I suggest you take time to read the old posts. I have mentioned the rates to be 1k for half a day. It should be the long loop AFAIK. But this is left to the discretion of the track authorities.

Now, can we have a final raise of the hands from all those coming from Chennai & Bangalore?

As madan had pointed out, it goes to say that we will be having certain set of rules. Just to maximize everyone's safety.

1. All headlamps, tail lamps, indicators will be taped up.
2. No articles to be left loose in the car.
3. Seat belts should be functioning. No one will be allowed on track otherwise.
4. Helmet rule for both the driver and passenger compulsory. No passengers at the rear.
5. Kindly check the condition of your tires, brakes and top up all fluids.
6. Avoid overtaking in the inner section. That said if you find a faster car coming down at you move and give space. This is not a race.
7. Make a conscious effort to watch your mirrors. Plays a vital role when one is on track.
8. All the newbies will be taken for a couple of formation laps just to get a hang of the lines by one of us. All those who are going wrong in any of the corners are requested to get in touch with me or the other regulars. We will try our best to help you out.
9. Request one of the Chennai members to get some safety aid.
10. There is a petrol pump right outside the track, so make sure you carry a good conditioned spare wheel, jack, jack rod and wheel spanner.
