From what I gathered they have classes upto 800cc, 1400cc, 2000cc and open class which I think means the imported cars. There's stock and modified in each of those categories too. He did mention something for superbikes too. Do call him direct if you have specific enquiries

@Ironwolf Blr-Hyd is about 540kms approx, a comfy drive.

Go for it Ram. Lets hope the Hyderabad chapter of TeamBHP is well represented on this day. Now where are Avi (mobike008), Naveen, Mahesh (Kutlee) and the others who are always seen revving away to glory during the Drive meets?

As mentioned earlier by Himanshu, lets have a meet fixed for those days. I, for one am going to enjoy myself in the stands with a whole load of Popcorn.

Lets all make the event a grand success through either participation or attendance. That way it will encourage the organisers to do more and do stuff like this annually.

Also with GMR supporting you have a high profile sponsor and if the event is a big success that spells a bright future for Hyd motorsports
