@ Kunal : Post some pics of the event if you can?

Mostly you win these kind of events on the basis of luck and less by skills. Because not all the karts are same. You are plain lucky if you get the best kart when your turn comes.

This kind of scenario was faced at a similar event held at formula Karting track (airport road which is closed now). One kart in perticular was fast and every participants started to ask for that kart when their turn came. Finally, the organizers had to pull off that kart from the circuit. But what about the people who already clocked good time on that kart???

i was part of this event and i screwed both my time and money on this.

@ Abbas

Yeh I agree there are always a few karts which are slower than rest, but we made sure to get rid of that problem, the drivers had to draw chits which had the karts number on them. So that pretty much made it an even competition.

you guys can check the review, race winners and picture on www.isport.in in the 'iEvent' section.
