But I know it is going to be fun nevertheless. I, for one, cannot wait to check out the track. Looking forward to meeting you all this time.

OT: With Nitrous riding shotgun..you could do corners faster as the car is heavier and handles better..ofcourse you could also straightline the curves..

Guys, taking inspiration from the MMST drag I am trying to rope in a similar event at Kari too. Hopefully it will come through. Will keep you all updated.

It would be a good idea to have the SR and dates announced two weeks in advance (at least). It kind of gives everybody enough time to prep up instead of burning midnight oil till the eve of the event.

Plenty of advance notice will be given. Maybe even 4 weeks if I get the news on the availability of track by next week. SR's will be pretty simple. No too many frills. It will be a knockout event for fun. Maybe we might thrown in a separate FI & NA class too if we have good turnout.

Thanks to a number of high profile people I managed to meet at the Kari, we now have full access to the KMS any time of the year. I have also secured a perm to host a friendly drag event. No prizes, nothing. Just pure fun. Dates will be up by Saturday.

Nope. Due to some aggressive testing being planned on some of the cars dates are still not yet out. Will make a call tonight and figure out the details. So can we have some votes now? 3rd week or 4th week?

The word going around (not confirmed) is that there's gonna be a track day/drag in Chennai on the 23rd of this month. Not too sure how far its true.
