Thumbs up Mumbai Speed Run 2009 - 7th and 8th November - Kharghar

Have heard some stuff from the insiders about the Speed Run 2009 happening in October in Mumbai. No, this isn't just another rumour but solid info from a reliable source. Anyone else heard of similar stuff and can somebody confirm the same?

Mods- Thought this warrants a separate thread even though there are threads existing discussing various aspects and suggestions et al but its the first time some reliable info has come up on the subject of the event. If not required please merge. Thanks.

Edit: Atleast the Facebook page confirms the news:

Speed Run - The Official INDIAN DRAG RACE | Facebook

Let's see. After all the events that didn't materialise, no one's going to be losing too much sleep over this. Especially now that APMSC has upped their game.

Yes. It will be on a better, straighter and longer road just a little bit away from the original track.
