Driving up is not an option anymore. The engine's get screwed half the way to the event and give big problems at the race.

Save your engines and your dignity. Hire a truck and send your rides.

Not SR. I'd be surprised if they gave more than 3k for the capacity-based classes, which they've been doing for years. Maybe they don't really get this. I'm talking about this...

Its been almost 2 months since I decided to quit racing. Now totally into a different profession called interior designing. Though, would love to drop by and see all of you race.

How many races have you participated in ?

Heard about the SR being held in Mumbai in feb but want to know if the dates are confirmed or still tentative, and the drag being held in Bangy, is it SR or some private drag being organised.

good question. NONE. I meant decking up my car to be given to friends to drive at SR or contemplating plans of racing in the future.

Really? So chotey, why don't you design a lovely looking stand for us to sit in at the Speed Run. The last time it was a bit tacky.
I like a stand with some character.

So, if your previous profession was racing, who paid you then? Hmm?
