Not yet, Shantanu. This was only a small preview of things to come. We have been assured that a tarmac track is coming up in 6 months, or less.

Well, the way that the track is today, you better settle for dirt bikes . Will take a bit before the tarmac section is up and running.

Haven't received any updates from Pradip, so don't know yet. In the meanwhile, here is another superb place (ATVs, R/C planes, Paintball, Archery, Zorbing & more - Della Adventure, Lonavla) in Lonavla where you can rent ATVs, RC Cars & the like.

Man, i can't believe i didn't comment on this thread earlier.

Mumbai/Pune guys need something like this so bad!

I'm very excited about this place -- but moreso for the go-karting / tarmac track.

Its been almost 3 months since this report, any news on the progress of the tarmac section? Or rather, has the work on it begun - or is it more likely to be a 2011 part of the project ? (@PS)

Im told the Bill Gwynne Team is expected very soon to inspect and take the work/project forward.
2 Swifts and a Gypsy are procured, and are under roll cage fitting.
The dirt and Offroad part is ready. The tarmac will come up later in the year.

Just spoke to Pradip earlier this week.

1. As Scooby posted, Peter Gwynne / his team are arriving in July.

2. School & training will be commencing soon. In about 4 - 6 weeks.

3. 2 rally-spec cars on their way, one of them a 200+ BHP AWD Scooby

Same here mate,
I'd love to take part in the advance school and then once a month go for the track day.
They let you drive your own car if you want, and they give tyres on rent to be put on your car (read on the website). That's really great so you dont have to worry about wearing out your own tyres.
One thing that worries me is whether the rates will be reasonable or not.
