Well, we just travel to Mumbai for the speedruns and to Delhi for the auto expo.
You would never see us telling "Lucky you xxxx". We just make a holiday off an auto event.
So, pack your bags and book your train tickets. You have one whole month to plan.

This is an international event. The last one was in 1998. So, expect this to be ticketed.

Thanks for the invite nitrous.. but coming once or twice a year to watch and having a race track in your own city are two different things. Wish I could come..
