If I am not wrong Vikram Mathias is from Red Rooster Racing right. Well! then RRR is doing pretty good and its future too is certainly looking bright.

@ Raghu - thanks for the correction

I was reading that Vikram Mathias was doing well - with the RRR cars also performing.

However, question i had - how does one peg Baleno's and Cedias with each other - cedia is 2L and baleno 1.6 right?

I posted this question here about 2 years back.
I was told the Cedia and Baleno are in two different classes.
They compete for only the overall cup.

Yes, MAI and MRF are having their tiff and clearly MAI is not boging down for MRF.

Even without the MRF there were 43 entries of the maximum 50 which is great.
Frankly no body missed the "BIG" team and were more than happy that the absense of MRF created a more level field.

For the rally, there was shortage of tyres for the RSC class which were given by MRF. Many of the competitors had to use whatever the spare tyre they had since not every competior got the full set of 5 tyres as promised.

Also there is a rumor that from the next rally, the RSC category will get imported tyres and most probably it will be silverstone tyres.

I heard that it could even be Pirelli ... lets wait and watch !! Also there is another rumour going around that SIDVIN wants Team MRF to take part coz that would give them a competitor and if MRF doesn't agree to take part then SIDVIN also might re think its strategy ... !!

Interesting time for the INRC ..I dont give a damn who takes part or who doesnt but as long as the SPORT wins everyone should be ok .

Cheers
