There are two categories for the race :

NOVICE CLASS : HONDA CBF STUNNER
INTERMEDIATE CLASS : HONDA CBR150R

Honda will provide the bikes, it has also imported the CBR150 especially for this event.

From what i know, regular joe's are fine as long as they have a FMSCI license to race (for 'how to apply' questions, go to The Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India ). Those without prior race experience will have to take part in the "Novice" category aboard "stunner's" and those with race experience (atleast a year) can take part in the 'Intermediate' category on CBR150R. As is typical of these events, the articles in the magazines said, 'go to nearest honda dealer for more details', so I went over to the Honda showroom at Domlur and guess what? They had no clue what i was talking about....go figure.

wow wow!!
after the Yamaha event its the time for the Honda!!
Lets hope they finally wake-up to the enthusiasts calls and bring in the CBR150 to pitch against the R15. Till then lets enjoy the bikes in action

Guys who are attending the event, please take lots and lots of Pics and Videos.

The FMSCI folks themselves are yet to update their website(as of 12noon, 30th September) no wonder the dealers scratch their heads.

I think you'll have to register. One needs to have a set of racing leathers ,boots,golves and a helmet to register,i think.
First day should be practice and qualifying. After which, the top 15(or so) times will be allowed to race on the raceday.

Not one rider had racing leathers in the R15 race held by Yamaha a few weeks back.

All the chennai annas(and also people from other places) please post lots and lots of pics and videos.

Mpower, lets wish they launch this one in India. I am sure this would be hit here in India. Also they have a good image and Sales network here.
