Waiting for V12's Review and report.
I visited the track today, and, VOW, is all I can say! Its an Off Roaders Dream track. Will not break the Car, and still give you all that is wanting from an off roader.
Keep it Up Pradeep!! But we want events open for Public asap. We will Pay to use the track, Please organise asap.
Our Allan did quiet a few changes to the track and added some hurdles too, and made it more adventureous, But Allan, I'd like to see a stretch where we can go faster on straights and sliding around the turns, and also IMO a vehicle getting stuck and needing to be winched out is too harsh and a lil boring.
Keep it up Automission! Get the advanced Driving school started too, Take my entry in and tell me the amount to be sent.

Hi GTO,

We had our Annual Company picnic at this place. Enjoyed alot!

Did ATV rides, archery and paint ball shooting. The paint balls were painfull

Good to know about Automission! Luckily, its near Pune-Mumbai and SWift makes me more happy

[EDIT]
Ok just found on Facebook AutoMission Motorsport | Facebook

Our Advance Driving School will start after the monsoon is over. Right now due to heavy rain, we are only encouraging OFF-ROAD activities at our track. For details you can directly call Mr. Pradeep Nair on 09920332763.

You mean Della Ventures? Yes, I hear its a top notch entertainment park. However, whoever visited said its completely empty, even on weekends!

Well, its also because Pradip is waiting for the cars to arrive. Monsoon conditions could make for an awesome rally school

We went there last month on a Friday. It was all us around the park. Most of the Games/adventures were closed due to rain. One thing I did not like about Della was the view of caged Birds and Animals. :(

I got a reply from him

I have been Rallying since over 40 years & have won 3 Himalyan Rallies in the early eighties. Since back then it was mine & my Partner's vision to start a Rally School and an
Advance Driving School in India. Now, finally due to better awareness in people, we were able to materialize our vision. As you know, we are located in Khopoli, Just off the
Mumbai - Pune Expressway (on the old Mumbai - Pune Highway).

Right now due to heavy rains and the condition of our track, we are only encouraging Off-Road activities & 4x4 Events at our venue. But we are planning to start the Advance
Driving & Rally School by mid-november, 2010.

Sam

Finally got a chance to visit Automission last friday.

Super convenient location, and the place sure has a lot of potential. At the moment not much has changed from the pics shown earlier in this thread, but in the next few weeks / months there will be some changes due to upcoming events etc.

The dirt oval - great fun in a RWD / AWD car

Hey Veyron,

I'm not sure how you get your hands on the EVO-convert, but i'm sure it must be one of the cars used for the training. Perhaps the longer / advanced training course?

Visited Automission today. Was told its closed for renovation for almost a year!! Will open only in a month or so. Not sure how accurate the info is because I was unable to meet any of the officials, just some guy working there. Anyone got any updates please?

Veyron1,
They give EVO to drive around the track. They also have rally prepared Cedia, Baleno, Lancer and Gypsy king. And these vehicles can be availed for driving around track.

Shekhar,
They may have closed their track due to monsoon and various Offroading events organized during monsoon (during one of our OTR in that track, we utlized this track to Max). I think they have started working on preparing dirt track now.
Allan and Tejas can comment.
