Default An afternoon at the MMSC Track.

This afternoon i witnessed three qualifiers of the JK Tyre series at the Madras Motor Sports Track. Of the three races that i saw, the first one was import bikes(600cc) , the second Maruti 1000cc and the third Rolon Formula III cars categories respectively. I think my information and recollection is accurate, but if isn't please feel free to correct me. In this first post you will find some spottings and things that interested me while we were waiting for the races to commence after lunch!.

Damn!!! Look at that tarmac. Can't wait to get there.

Why is there a 200ft braking marker at the opposite side of the straight? Do any of the races run anticlockwise? OR, was that a 200mtr marker for the right side of the straight?

Nice photos. Compare the grid with this one from the 70's and everyone will agree that Indian motorsport is not what it used to be. I feel sad and dejected that my generation (including myself) has not experienced the awesomeness of being on track at the same time as a contemporary F1 car, with homebuilt machinery no less:

@ananthkamath- I agree! what has happened to us? I guess we're too busy running after the next raise/promotion/rank.
