Default 4th Round of 12th JK Tyre FMSCI National Racing Championship

The 4th round of the JK National Road Racing Championships is being held at the MMRT (MAdras Motorsports Race Track) at Chennai.

there are going to be the superbikes, saloon cars, Formula Rolon Chevrolet, Formula Hyundai and Swifts.

Touted to be quite an exciting round as the point differences between current championship leader - Ashwin Sundar and Red Rooster's Akhil Khuslani is about 4 points.

CC to Weight (saloon cars) has completly souped up cars pacing each other to come up on top (some photos in the chennai track day thread)

so August 1st, and 2nd @ the Race track at Sriperumbadur.

For every 1kg of vehicle+driver weight, there should be 1.75 cc

In theory the above is right. However the method of deciding the minimum weight is as follows:

Minumum weight (Vehicle + All fluids + Driver{including driving gear}) = Declared CC / 1.75.

Accordingly the competitor can add or remove weight to his / her vehicle, since for obvious reasons increasinging or decreasing CC is not possible over the weekend.

Like nitrous said, a schedule would be useful.

I plan to make it atleast on one day. Maybe Chennai bhp-ians can plan a drive-down together.

Hey! Supersaloons is full of Esteems !!!! (wasn't the whole idea to bring in more variety) ...but nice to see Esteems all dressed up with spoilers and bodykits.

OT: Looks like Viji sir fogot his breifcase on his bonnet.
