Question Confirmed: Narain to demo Jordan F1 on Marine Drive


Ok I read in the Sunday Mid-Day that Narain and his Jordan would be down in India on the 30th of October to hold a demonstration race on Marine drive that would be organised by the WIAA...
Any truth in this??

the jordan racing on marine drive? well probably a stock zen or 800 would outrun it as the roads are so bad the jordan will disintegrate and 800 will win the race! wonder who narain will blame .. car or road?

may be they will rebuild the road & it will most likely be a small race or just a demonstration run.

wouldn't it have been cooler if Bernie would have kept V12's for one more season

What's even better for us is that we should expect a smooth layer of tarmac on Marine Drive very soon! Maybe we should get him to drive around the rest of town as well. Atleast that way we get good roads!!

This is surely a treat for F1 fans who havent heard an F1 screaming in person. So what if its a Jordan? Heck even a Minardi sounds awesome when you heard it in pereson. I recommend a dose of that to everyone because it is one experience you will never forget for the rest of your life. Dont miss it . It could be a once in a life time chance.

Hearing an F1 V10 will absolutely blow your mind. And this comes from someone who has seen and heard 20 F1 V10s screaming at full throttle..

Pure bliss

Hoepfully, the autos/taxis will keep out of Narain's way. BTW, why is such an event being held? I mean upon which sponsor(s)' insistence?
