Default Drag Race in Delhi/Noida?

I heard rumors of A drag happening in Delhi/Noida in the coming weeks. Is it true or is it just a Rumor. Please Do put up the details of the event if it is actually happening. I also hear that the timing gear is about to leave Bombay.

ya I have heard something similar. A friend informed me about the same last week. I think its the redline 2 (not sure of the name) but it is organised on 19th of September (comming sunday) near the DND flyover connecting delhi and noida. The entry ticket if I remember right is 500 per car for 2 drags if you register online and 1k if you register on the spot. Its an official event and will be covered by the media.

I had plans to participate but cant as I have some classes on sunday which I cant afford to miss.

I will confirm the name of the event with my friend tomorrow and correct it if I am wrong.

It's Redline 2 to be held on Sunday, 19th September, 2010 in Greater Noida. I got a Facebook PM about the Event mentioning the link: Welcome to Facebook

Mods, I'm not related to the organizers and I'm not promoting an illegal event. I've been told that necessary permissions have been taken. In case my link flouts Forum norms please delete/ modify.

Yes, Redline 2 was scheduled to take place of 19th Septemeber in Greater Noida, it was a completely legal event with all permissions and proper Media coverage as well, but unfortunately due to Rains and bad weather, the event was postponed for november.

But even though redline was postponed, the venue was ready so people who had came all the way to the track did get to do some drags, I was also there and surely got a nice preview of how Redline 2 will be. Some pictures attached.

@ CYRUS, Yes but the weather was not supportive all the arrangements got ruined. Date has changed to November sometime now due to CWG in delhi and festive season. This event has clearance from all government bodies required.

^^ I agree with anonymous , it's going to happen on 4th and 5th Dec and is called the redline 2.

@netfreakbombay - Last time it happened there were no requirement except you getting a car and racing with the same category cars. I have the invite for this event on FB however no details have been mentioned so far. I can send you the invite if you give me your FB ID ( hope this is allowed Mods ).

Thanks for the pictures !!

Atleast you have made the effort of updating - wonder why it is so quiet on the organisers front.




Many thanks
