Default From unoffcial to Official

Ok some slight changes. We are gonna go OFFICIAL. Permits from the sporting bodies are going to be applied for. For those of you who are going to take part, please apply for your licences (MAI). For those who arent going to take part, you are most welcome to come and watch.

It's going to be an action packed weekend of racing. Theres going to be 3 different kinds of Formula races. viz. Formula Swift, Formual Hyundai and Formula Rolon Chevorlet, followed by the drag in the evening.

Hoping to see a lot of you there. Foodstalls are going to be put up and there will be adequate refreshment. Most of the action is on Sunday. We start at 10 in the morning. ENTRY TO THE TRACK IS FREE.

Stay tuned for further updates.

Farhan, is there a provision for applying of license at the venue? Like speedrun or do I have to contact he who must not be named and get it done at the earliest? I am still thinking on participating. Might just tag along with a few friends and watch the show if nothing else.

MAI licence forms can be downloaded from :: MAI :: . You will need a minimum of a Clubsport I licence which costs Rs.500 and is valid till 31st December 07. So the same licence can be used for the upcoming ACI Speedrun's as well.

Those that took part in the Speedrun earlier this year would already have this licence. Also, if anyone has an existing Rally/Race licence, he can enter with that. I presume the organisers will accept completed forms and fees at the track itself.

What timing system is going to be used??

To answer all questions one by one: -

@ Aditya - Saturday evening you will be given 2 and a half hours for any practice runs. Event is on Sundya evening after all races are over. We have the formula races which start at 10 in the morning and get over by 3 in the afternoon. Refreshment stalls, etc etc all available track side. Entry to the track is FREE.

@ Mclaren - Please apply for your licences. As long you have applied and show us proff, it does not matter.

@ Rtech & Adman - FRK racing is being contracted for the christmas lights and the timing system. They have a laser pick up timing system.

SR is ready and Keshav will be putting it up shortly.

So, FI cars will run alongside NA cars?

Also Farhan mentioned about applying for licenses ourselves however your posts says applications accepted at the venue. So which is true?

I still am not sure about participation. Parents are on this temple visiting spree and if we are anywhere close to Chennai I shall drop by and mostly take part. If not I will have to let it pass.
