I've participated the last 3 times in my carb esteem - 14th, 18th and 17th...

was thinking of taking my spanking new baleno but maybe it's not such a good idea so might take out my old esteem for one last ride.

I'll be going to Motorcraft to pick up my esteem tom so I'll have a word with Mr Jayesh Desai.

Only Maruti cars are allowed (other makes were allowed in 2002), classes IIRC are :

800cc
<1000cc
<1300cc
<1600cc
Gypsy
Women's

(I might be wrong about the above)

It's a twin / parallel dirt track - one dip and one bridge - the tracks cross over. Cars start together on different sections - I'll see if I can dig up an old drawing of the track from 2 years back) - 2 laps (one lap is covering both the sections of the track) of maybe 1.5-2 Km each. (like a Mobius strip ?)

The entrants range from average joes like me to RdH winners to N.Leelakrishnan and Vijayant Chaudhary of Team MRF (in 2002 my final 16 race was with V.Chaudhary - I lost )
There were maybe 70 odd entrants in the 1300 category last year.
Good fun all around, the cars are supposed to be stock but many aren't , dirt tyres are used by the serious chaps and pros (JK Ultima XR 175/70R13 or an MRF one ), you need to have a helmet - entry fee last year was Rs1100 plus 500 more for the FMSCI/MAI license .

check out www.northernmotorsport.net for more details.
