Too many people pulling the strings, didn't I always say it was just a circus. They are inconsiderate enough to overlook the people dedicated to the sport. Weren't there reports of mal-timings last year too? So I heard, from participant types.

It's time to take it to a different level, where it's more than just a brand building exercise gone all wrong. I guess one of the former motorspot governing authorities should step in.

Jaggu till these questions get raised by a larger audience how would you expect to rally support if this is true. Agree with you that the winner takes it all but only till the truth comes out. Please remember forums like these are the voice of a person who cannot get to the right authorities directly.

If ACI has the proof of such a malpractice it is high time they came out with the facts and accept what has happened rather than trying to cover up at the background. Also if MAI licences are mandatory for these events, it automatically becomes their(MAI's) duty to scruitiny, authorise and co-manage these events.

Request members who know people in ACI, MAI to confirm wether the points raised in this thread are true. If it is found to be true also request to let this information to be made public.

But what could be the reason to make alterations to the drag timings? Are you trying to say that some of the timekeepers were bought out by riders/drivers with deep pockets just so that they could get an ego boost???
