If there are enough people coming down, I'm sure there would be a meet hosted by the Bombay boys. Let the Speed Run get absolutely confirmed first.

So, if I understand this correctly, I'd have to enter my M3 in the Foreign cars 3,001 to 4,000 cc category? Does this also mean that a car with an engine upto 2,352 cc and either nitrous or a turbo/super charger will also be allowed to enter the same category?

In that case I'd expect a certain S2000 with around 400bhp to be up against me, which would not be much fun seeing as it's 2/3 the weight! :(

If it's the one which belongs to the Raymond's chap, I wouldn't be too worried unless he's recently had some work done on it.

Well, I was informed that it's been tweaked and now puts out around 400 bhp, which is a HUGE jump from the 240bhp it makes stock!

Guys i plan to run my Swift Diesel (ok, dont laugh now) in the speedrun. Can you tell me which class will i be put into and which cars will i will be competing in? Only mod is Petes box and CAI, so thats pro-stock!

And no slicks allowed, why is that?

Well it was fitted with that some time ago but according to reports developed complications & later was lying in quite a neglected state (if you do a search, I believe you can find some pictures of it). If it's running again now then I guess it's been re-fixed recently.

Kbk, dont worry about it.

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush or five in the sky.

PS - and IF the S2k creams you, a lot of people will say "phew, finally!!!"

(it was VERY hot for 2003s event, + concrete road)
2003/04? - Foreign Cars 2001cc - 3000cc : 16.249secs : Karun Chandok - Honda S 2000 - 1st place

2005 - Foreign Cars 2001cc - 3000cc : 14.045secs : Gautam Singhania - Honda S 2000 - 1st place

2006 - Unrestricted class : 13.344secs : Gautam Singhania - Honda S2000 (Sc) - reaction time: 0.931 - 2nd place in category


so the above might have scared you a little but here is something to boost your spirits >

2003/04? - Overall fastest car - (hmm..i wonder what car) : 14.730secs- Jai Mehta - E46 BMW M3 - 1st place overall
(and thats with ~85 less hp than yours - and on that very hot day in 2003/04?!)

BUSA - you can run in the prostock as well as diesel open class. Arrey first get the slicks for your car we shall get a special exception made for you.

Ishaan - The car has been rectified and is doing well now. Cant comment on the Hp figures though.

@ kbk_75 - Just run your car man dont worry about the others do it for the thrill. Am participating too in the Unrestricted Class (This class is open to all Indian cars with foreign engines, foreign cars and Specials, single seater and non-production vehicles) same as your category knowing I dont have any chances.
