Forgot to mention this, after Gill finished the GT and Super 200 class race in the cedia infront of Arjun, he put up a little show for the spectators.

He drifted the cedia on the straights doing over a 1oo kmph

After an inordinately long train journey, Nitrous and I arrived at CBE on Friday night. Luckily found accomodation at spitting distance from the railway station, and we were snoring away before midnight.

Harrie came by to pick us up after lunch time on Saturday, in his MIVEC Lancer.


What an engine!!!! It was, admittedly, my first MIVEC experience, and I was blown away by the way this thing revs. After 4k rpm, there is a distinct change in the way the engine sounds, and by the time 6k rpm is reached, it changes into a banshee wail, and it just pulls, all the way to 8k+ rpm!!! Awesome stuff!!




So we arrived at the track after a while, and first went through a dirt road to a place where we could view the dangerous S-curve in the second half of the track. As it turned out, the super 1600 class was going on then, and we saw the insanely-quick MRF Fiesta's storming the course. Man, they were quick!! And they were sporting really stiff suspension too. It was a treat to watch them handle this curve. MRF Baleno's were giving chase to these cars, followed by a lone Silver Baleno.


We then decided to get to the paddocks, where we saw these


There were four Evo's in all, two white EVO IX's, and one black EVO VIII. ( am not sure if both the white cars were the IX's, can someone verify that?). There was the yellow EVO IV, in addition. Plus the Silver previous-gen STI that didnt race for some reason.







Carbon fibre air intake, simply beautiful



Engine bay:




AAAAARG!!! Sorry about the nasty flash..... Evo Interior...










Black Evo




More coming up......

But it was a particular orange car lying at the other side of the paddock that took our collective breaths away.





















After I had calmed down a bit, I couldn't resist a couple of Evo-vs-Sti pics

This Baleno had broken down on the racetrack during the Super 1600 race, and was being towed back as we were getting onto the viewing bridge over the start line.



This was the lineup for the Indian Open race. Note the Zen and the 800 towards the back of the grid.

1st Silver Esteem- Radha Selvaraj
2nd Yellow Baleno- Chetan Sivaram
3rd White Esteem- Subash Chandra Bose

This was a brilliant race, with Radha Selvaraj pulling away from the rest of the pack, and a nail-biting competition between Chetan Sivaram and Bose. The last lap itself saw them exchange positions twice, with Bose grabbing the position away from Sivaram on the main straight, approaching the finish line!!! Some awesome racing.

Chetan's car wounded following the battle.



Then there was the Esteem class (or was it 1300?), which didnt see that much action. At least, it seemed very tame after the very entertaining Indian Open race.

Lineup for the Esteem class.



More coming up soon......

Great shots there guys. Post up the rest!

Meanwhile, here are the results and report from Day 2:

Motorsports Association of India
- Official Press Release -
Navaz, Dilip Rogger hog limelight on 2nd day

The second day's proceedings literally ended with a bang at the Kari Memorial Speedway on Sunday as the engine of Arjun Balu's Cedia began spewing smoke and flames in the penultimate lap of the GT Class and Super 2000 race, prompting fire extinguishers and a fire engine to get into the act, bringing to a close the MRF Racing Challenge 2007. The day saw some exciting performances from super biker Dilip Rogger and the lone female driver Navaz Sandhu.

Rogger, astride the Yamaha R6, clocked a lap of 1:07.924, the fastest ever in the history of the Kari Memorial Speedway, while winning the Super Bikes category.

Navaz then got her show on the road, winning the Indian Open and the cc to weight ratio categories, leaving in her wake some big names in racing like Radha Selvaraj, Vijaykumar B, Chetan Shivram and Subhash Chandra Bose.

There was also super fast action in the Super 1600 category with Karandeep Sandhu of Team MRF stealing a march over his teammate to avenge his first day's defeat to the driver from Mysore. Lohit Urs was left rooted at the start as karandeep and the rest of the field zoomed past and Urs had to then go flat out to recover lost ground he did manage to pass drivers like Arjun Rao Aroor and Phillipos Mathai, but could not overtake Karandeep, who had opened up a sizeable lead by the. "My gear slipped into neutral when I released the clutch and I had to start all over again," said Urs, explaining his late start.

The GT Class and Super 2000 class, featuring the big boys got off to a bunch start, but by the first turn, Sri Lankan Nadeera Jinasena had inched ahead. The scramble for positions saw Arjun Balu bang into another Lankan Janaka Nishanta and the damage to Balu's car proved his undoing as the wheel kept rubbing against the frame, resulting in the smoke and fire at the end of nine laps. Gill, who tried a sharp first turn, slid out of control and lost valuable ground to Balu, but he kept pushing and had managed to come upto Balu's tail when the latter had to pull out.

GT Class: Nadeera Jinasena 12:07.585; Reyaz Farook 12:16.556; Janaka Nishanta 12:23.857.
