They have bought a ATR kinda plane which they plan to place in the middle of the track as a restaurant! It would be only a novelty thing, wouldn't add much to the track.

I think you mean begin with the Raptor. Dominator was their quickest kart, its defunct now.

What are the different karts they've got not? I remember they had the Raptor and Dominator the last time I went there.

Does any of these tracks have a podium that can accommodate about 8-10 people with a view of the entire track?

Yes. Since no offroad events seem to be happening, thought we can convert to onroad races.

We have a track at Patel's Inn in RT Nagar Near the BDA Complex. Cant say if its good or bad as i have never been to any of them yet. Noticed this one when i went to attend a function there. Yes My son did enjoy few laps, they had small ones for kids as well .

Yes great idea ! May be we can have some small off road races too. Like buggy and SCT. Hope it works out. Sad to see things deteriorate so badly in the city where it all began.

Got around to do some laps at E zone.. it is a long drive from Lavelle road during traffic hours!
The track is quite bumpy around the pit area and visibility quite low due to the dim lighting and scratched visors.

Signed up for 12 laps, after 3 laps a problem developed and I started losing power at a couple of corners, 2 laps later i pulled in and asked for a new kart.

managed to get some decent laps in, but had to re spend 1-2 laps getting the tires warm

Best Lap : 29.3 in the 9bhp intruder kart at my first visit (Dominator wasnt available)

The white board said lap record of 28.7, is this quickest for the day or could it be overall?
