Default JK Tyres NRC at MMSC, Some Pics

On a cloudy Saturday morning, with nothing much to do, decided to take my kids to the track side. Kids wanted to see the SBKs & the saloon class in action. So called up Farhan (Sideways) to find out the schedule, but could not get any response from him even after texting him. So decided to take my chance & started off at 11.30 am. Was just in time to see the Formula Hyundai race followed by the Formula Swift after which the Formula Rolon started. But had to wait till late in the evening for the Superbikes & the Saloon class races. In fact the saloons were finishing the races with headlights & parking lights on, it was that late in the evening. Some pics here.

First the Tarmac, absolutely black & inviting.

Hi Esteeem_Lover, very nice pics - one of the better ways to spend a Saturday I guess !

The "grandstand" pic was cool - quietly grooming the next Michael & Ralf I see

P.S. - Maybe Ralf isn't that good an example, but couldn't think of better racing siblings

Nice pics esteem_lover

Have you notices a Blue Zen with really fat rear tyres. Wheel arches are flared because the tyre is that fat.
I've seen that in couple of race pics in magazines at MMSC track.

By any change you have the pic of that ?

That guy in the blue shirt looks a bit big to be classified as one of the children John!
