I've been visiting this event in both the cities almost every year.
I have never seen improvement.
But, if this thread and you're going to show improvements in all the areas concerned, you have my respect.

Please do respond to what we have to say, after all we love the event and would attend it no matter what. But it would feel great if those little niggles are taken careof.

Another thing you should do, is watch TorqueNite very closely. If any mistakes are made, ACI should take care not to repeat them at the Speed Run. This suggestion goes for the organisers of TorqueNite as well. Watch Speed Run carefully and don't repeat the mistakes that the organisers make. That's another way of improving the event.

Guys, I havnt been to any speed run since the first one held.
But from what i have read over the last three pages it seems that even though its now in its fourth year running,it is far from being perfectly run.
My statement has nothing against Autocar and its speedrun,but i wish to use that as an example to some of the guys who are hell bent on hammering criticism on the recently concluded Deccan Quartermile Drag.I am aware of the amount of effort that goes into organising such an event.So i can understand that even for an experienced outfit such as autocar there maybe lapses and errors.Then why cant a few out there understand that the Deccan Quartermile being in its first year will take all the negatives of this year and improve on them,and be much better the next time around.I appreciate all the participants who put in a lot of hard work,time and money into coming here and participating.For those who had a few issues i apologise on behalf of the APMSC and just request that be a little more patient with us! Looking forward to the next edition of the deccan quartermile minus the issues and also a SpeedRun 2009 irrespective of where it is(bombay/bangalore) held to be very successful!

Ishaan your post is off topic here. We are talking about improving things for the speedrun here and not about bashing deccan drag here. You have objected there and it has been read by everybody. We don't need these posts on this thread.

I don't know if I am the right person to post here but here goes.

I suggest that ACI should keep volunteers, say mech/auto. engg. students, to do the smaller things in the event like registering entries and the likes. Give each of them an ID,T-shirt, cap, foodpass and a 'certificate of appreciation' and they'll be more than happy to contribute to the event. Because for them, being associated with the event will be of great importance than money or anything else.

These guys will be useful in tackling issues which are caused at the gates itself coz the watchmen aren't really qualified to understand the technicalities and thus, end up rejecting genuine people and letting the cheapos in. Cyrus, you know this better coz organisers like you should utilise your time and energy handling the bigger things and leaving things like crowd control, decorum in the pitlane/main entry gate to a team of dedicated volunteers.

I am telling this from the experience of our college tech. events. Although, they are much smaller events, a high number of volunteers makes work much easier even if half of the volunteers turn out to be good-for-nothings. Atleast they are useful in forming human chains / barricades, an essential for crowd control.

This will also take care of the 'rudeness' issues others are commenting about.

Hope this helps .

Dude this thread is related to Speed Run 2009, why have you posted about Deccan quarter mile drag over here ? There is a thread for that so post it there.
Read the first post.

Whatever said & done with the complaints et all, there isn't a doubt that the Speedrun took drag-racing to the masses (in 2002?). And year on year, it has emerged as the biggest most popular event. Kudos to the ACI team for their initiative. Do they have problems? Are there areas of improvement? You bet. Threads like this are a step in the right direction.

Cyrus, don't miss this discussion either.

Methinks whatever ACI aims to do is in good intent and fair until the sponsors and rich industrialists override them

And this could be another thing they should look at for learning from others mistakes:
