mmm, now that would be something to checkout -- an off road track.

Next time if we pass through kanakpura, would like to check it out and see if this is any good to hold beginner 4x4 sessions about techniques & recovery etc.

Don't get your hopes up. It appears to cater only ATVs, dirt bikes and RC trucks.

Its actually very affordable... One lap of the track costs 300 bucks I guess... Atleast that was the price on the opening day.. Have'nt gone after that... I heard from the owner Zubair that he's planning to bring down a couple of them Chinese Off Road bikes too.... Obviously only a selected few regulars will be allowed to ride those and they will be charged more too...

Bangalore guys are lucky that they have so many placed for practising.
BTW are you talking about Zubair Ali Jung?

Checked on the cost for RCs. 250Rs with RC car and one tank of fuel ie 150ml which should last about 15 minutes. If you have your own car, 500Rs/hr. Its not a RC purpose built track, so feel prices are on the higher side.

ATV prices seem to be attractive.
