The M800 and the zen took part in the indian open? Are engine swaps allowed? or were they running their std engines?

But it sure looked and sounded awesome!

They are going to prepare it properly for next years races.

The maruti 800 had its standard engine but was fully blown up and turbocharged by FRK Racing.

The Zen had an esteem engine and was pretty quick too.

Are we seeing a mix of overall and lap timings? Just want to know Rajini's and Sudhakar's fastest laptime. Also what bikes were the top 3 in the 250 class.

Exactly the reason i'm still waiting for the full results to be uploaded to mylaps.com...still nothing there yet

Rajini was riding the factory 160cc group B Apache. Vinoth Kannan won the 250cc category on a Group B ZMA and 2nd place Alok was also on a Group B ZMA.

@islero- the Evo looked like it had a sequential gear box as opposed to the standard "H" - any insights on that?

Also - how did the MRF cedia's do on track? like the last time - were the MRF fiestas running?

Well, honestly - i did not know engine swaps were allowed.

Looks like the standard shifter linkages, with a short-throw lever.

The Cedia's were really quick and gave even the Evo's a good chase.. Gaurav Gill of team MRF actually went sideways in Reyaz Farook's white Evo at the 2nd Chicane.

The MRF Fiesta's did race but this time with better suspensions and sequential gearboxes.

Engine swaps are allowed as long as u meet the minimum weight requirement for the engine capacity category.

Report continued.......
Day 1 part 2:

So then we then got down from the bridge over the starting line and began roaming around the pits.

EVO IV and STI:



Subash Chandra Bose's Esteem. This car was much quieter than the opposition and seemed to perform very well.



Race Esteem interior:




The MRF tent. Went inside to have a look at the Cedia's engine bay, but then we were told politely that photography was not allowed when my hands instinctively reached for my camera upon seeing the engine.




We ran into Dilip Rogger, whom Nitrous very kindly introduced me to. Apparently, the superbikes are doing 250 on the main straight by the time they start braking for C1, which is approximately at the 150m mark. Craaazy!!!


After we resigned ourselves to the fact that we would have to watch the rest of the day's races from the pit wall, we lined up to watch the GT class race. Here's the starting line-up, captured from far-far away using my Sony's crap-o-matic zoom facility.



A tussle between two of the cars during the race left the black Evo piloted by Aravinda Premadasa with heavy damage, and he stormed into the pits to try and get it sorted out.





As you can see, it was some pretty heavy damage, and took quite a while for the sole mechanic to get it sorted out. But he did, and Aravinda managed to get on track in the last minute.
Th confusion on track saw the yellow Evo IV coming in at first place, followed by the two other white Evo's.

The best part has to be Gill flinging his Cedia sideways right in front of the pitwall audience at speeds defenitely above 100, and effortlessly drifting the car, after finishing the race. The man sure can drive.


Waiting outside the scrutiny bay following the race:



Gill:



With all the races done, we headed back to CBE, where Harrie took us to a nice open parotta place for dinner. Great parottas and chicken!!

Oh. ok. It looked different, hence I thought this was a sequential GB.
thanks!

Almost forgot to mention, its great to see cars and bike racing at the same event. This hasn't happened in a long time IIRC.

Is this some kind of patch up/agreement between MAI and FMSCI? Anybody know?
