But it sure looked and sounded awesome!

They are going to prepare it properly for next years races.
If the guy had spent the same time he did on the paint job working on the mechanicals, it would have been more reliable.......

Going by the questions posted by so many of you-
Are we allowed to swap engines?
Only in the CC to Weight class. But the engine has to be of Indian origin. The car can be lightened to a specific weight depending on the Cubic capacity. Details on asking.
There is going to be a new class added or is rumoured-Open Open
This would be Indian car Foreign engine. Ex: A Zen with a Suzuki 1300 Twin cam.
The Zen which was driven by Siddarth was powered by a 1300 Esteem and hence ran in the Indian Open and CC2Weight categories.
The 800 which is a 800 Turbocharged ran in the above 2 categories too.

This was the lineup for the Indian Open race. Note the Zen and the 800 towards the back of the grid.
Although the above 2 cars qualified midfield they had to start at the back of the grid for being underweight in the Indian Open category which has a minimum weight of 950kg. Navaz too started at the back of the grid in the MRF Baleno as she arrived on track 15 min before the race and had not qualified.

Any reason why the touring car race happens only at Coimby and not in Chennai also.

I guess its something to do with MRF vs JK. Again I am only guessing. Because last time at the chennai I track all I saw was yellow. In Coimby it was red all the way. MRF conducting the touring car championship might have decided to hold it in Coimby only.

Apparently, there's no rivalry. Its just that the chennai track is a bit expensive.
A little birdie tells me the chennai round is happening in Feb.
But, there's also an international race here in the same month. Lets see.
