Arrow Pics: Ahmedabad Motocross - May 2008

Hai PPl,

Today I saw the Ahmedabd Moto cross organized by the Suzuka Motor Club; this was the firs time ever at A'bad.

I could get the ringside view of the action due to some friends involved in the event. Here is a link to some photos.

Picasa Web Albums - ramky - AHMEDABAD MOT...

The event on the whole was a success, sponsorship from the biking companies was visible, there were about 50+ participants.

The kingpin behind the show was Mr.Nimish Patel who was sweating out with his team to control the crowd (or was it a mob)
who were running hay-wire throughout the course / tract etc., Got to a rocky start with many re-starts; soon the crowd
understood the dirt-track was for the bikers!!!!! The marshells were pooped out in about an hour with the heat hitting 40+,
my cap saved my bald head, had to drink 2 liters of water by lunch time.

There were 4 categories for the racing;

. 81 cc to 110 cc - 2 stroke and 4 stroke
. 115cc to 150 cc - 2 stroke and 4 stroke
. 151cc to 200 cc - 4 stroke only
. 201cc to 500 cc
. All categories were divided into novice class and experts class.

There was a gent aged 60 years, Mr.Vagela, one of the oldest contester in the country. Some of the teams from Baroda had come with a lot of support, with cheering crowds and technical teams. For a first off event, this was very good.

If they improve the barricades better, have a little more trained road marshalls and throw some water on the course to slush it up, this would grow-up to be a event to watch in times to come.

Happy Riding,

Reehan,

Still mentally in the linking mode........

I'm attaching some pictures herewith. Used the OPTION TWO from the GTO's post "posting pictures" to reduce the size of the pictures. Hope these come out OK.

Happy Riding,
