Default Track Day at Coimbatore on 30th September. Report starts on page 16.

Guys, have some good news.

In the other track day thread we are having this Aug 4th 07 at the MMST, I had mentioned that Kari will not allow saloon cars without roll cages. Which was mandatory up until now. However, I have managed to talk to people that matter and have gotten this rule relaxed. Yes, we will be allowed to take our saloon cars to the KMS track starting from this September 07.

Since the rule of mandatory roll cage was brought up with a prime intention of stopping mishaps happen at the dangerous C1 (considering that the straight is almost 900mtrs) we will be enforcing certain changes to the layout of the track itself to minimize risks at this particular corner. We will be henceforth introducing a chicane on the straight to cut down the speeds. While we will be ready with the rest of rules in the days to come keeping in mind safety issues as our primary concern. I would like to know how many of you would be interested in taking your cars to the track.

I need to work out the track expenses and other details on how to run this entire event. I am told that it would be impossible to have an arrive and drive system like the MMST. So I need as many numbers as possible, as early as possible. Some of us are very excited to try out the KMS. We have gotten a chance that many could only dream of, now its upto us to make the best use of it.

Sincere request to all of you who wish to join some of us to kindly vote for the following.

1. If you will be taking your car onto track kindly vote. Be it your own car or your friend's.

2. Kindly vote if you are interested in coming as a spectator only. We need to work out something for you guys also.

So let the votes keep rolling. Request our members from cities like Bombay, Hyderabad, Trivandrum, Bangalore, Chennai, Pune all try to make it to this one. It will be loads of fun.

Expecting a good turnout.

What are the dates?? It will be easier to decide the free time as per that..
Obviously you will plan for a weekend but still it will be better to put up tentative dates..

Also please give a choice of 2 dates only. Or this thread will turn into one of those i can make it here or i cant make it there..

Sumit, I will have to check the availability of the track first. Will be putting up the dates shortly. The course will be a single day course. It will either be on a Saturday or Sunday.

Guys, I need a bigger turnout. As I have already mentioned we cannot have a arrive and drive sorts at Kari. I am trying hard to get together some FISSME's for all those who are too scared to get their cars on track.

There will be a surprise for all who come. You can watch the best of the single seaters in India in action.

Already managed to organize 2 LGB esteem's and 1 FISSME for all those who prefer renting cars and not driving their own. Trying to rope in atleast 3 more FISSME's. Will post all the details and the pricing soon.

Where is everybody? Isn't anyone from Chennai interested in coming? Numbers, numbers. We need more numbers.

Very much interested, but with a clear set of dates it would be easier to plan and apply for leaves and stuff. I cannot confirm whether I could get my car at this point of time.
