Airstrip! Airstrip! Airstrip! Any airstrip in and around Mumbai will do. Please please, can someone talk to the organisers.

THIS is where we need support from big players (Tata, Mahindra, Mallya etc) to get permissions approved and help promote motorsport events like these in India. However im also sure that none of them are too keen to deal with the morons doing donuts and toppling their cars over in the parking area.

only way to get Juhu airport would be to have ONGC sponsor the Drag lol! That airport is only used for choppers, but yet, they say they require the entire runway to land the darn things!

its usually Feb.
the problem is also that the org cant get assurance from customs that last years debacle wont be repeated.
i've heared that becuase of this illegal & not publised events do take place.(bit like the free -techno -party scene in the UK)
Aagh the wonders of mobile fones!!
Anyone from customs reading ? P*** **F

Yep agree with you wheelieboy
The cops in bangalore are calling any accident in bangalore as Unorganised Drag racing and so they are not permitting them for an organised one...sob sob
I still miss hearing all those speed freaks and the sounds in Jakkur Aerodrome
