Madras Motor Sports Club Track -Chennai - SkyscraperCity

Cheers!
Now those are some pics! Thanks for sharing.

Anybody have any information on what it takes to run in the F3 or F4 class?

nickatnite maybe you should start another thread, I'm guessing there will be a lot of discussion about your post.

I doubt the straight section of the MMST track is long enough for a drag race. Some stats would be nice.

Nope it isn't. It is barely 400m. The Kari straight is pretty long but the track itself is too narrow hence unsafe.

That was on August 12th 2007.

And it was a 200m (or 1/8th mile drag) not a 250m drag.

Arch to arch was the start to finish points.
