Thanks to Sanjay Narang and Sachin Tendulkar for making this happen. They say that they are not in it for the money, but more as enthusiasts.... so that sounds great!
A special concrete-asphalt was imported for the track surface, so hopefully that will make those 14+bhp karts more manageable on the turns when the time comes!

Im really looking forward to this!! Next TBHP meet here? what say!

cheers

How does it compare with Hakone (Hiranandani, Powai), Landmarc Citi ( Worli) and The Acres (Chembur)?

People, how does one compare go-kart tracks? degree-of-difficulty, length, safety? anybody?

you gotta be kidding...!! it seems like only yesterday that i went to the formula karting track ...!! i had heard that the venture was one of many, from a partner of the "mars" restaurant group. i thought this place was gonna be maintained by the same "mars" proprietor....

sad... i heard that it cost almost 50 lacs to build the track and bring in the carts....ALL THAT MONEY...down the drain..!!!
