Just wish the venue was closer to the city.
Anyway, the website says they're going to have an exhibition as well.
Hope this event is a big success.
oops! typing error. I meant "next month".

Default damn exams

Our exams will start around the same time.

But we'll try our best to be there. cheers:

We missed speed run this year because the car wasn't still ready and the old car had been dismantled.

But this time, the 2008 car has not been dismantled and so we can be there.

Lets hope for the best. Pray, the university time-tables come in our favour. lol

Loyalties are fine Cyrus but why dont you look into better organization of the Speedrun. Would make life easier for everyone, spectators and participants alike. The Speed Run organization is nothing short of pathetic

Dippy, It would be much easir if people actually follwed rules and regulations for a change. And we dont get a free run from the authorities too.....you know how it is! No point in discussing it in these pages.

Followed the rules and regulations. Like anyone was even close to the Skyline's times. Thats all ok.
Its the way the whole speed run was so disorganised and the way they managed the whole thing.
Iam sure Torque Nite organisers having seen this will have things in place.

is it for the love of loyalty or for the betterment of motorsports?

we need more motorsports events to be held in more parts of india- that will show sponsors that there is a captive audience in this and hence let them pump in more money...

look at the bigger picture than just who organizes it.
