Can someone please confirm if there is a general spectator stand? And if the tickets will be available at the venue and if it is limited?

That is absolutely right. No insurance company or bank or agency will cover a vehicle being used in any form of Closed Circuit Racing. They only provide an additional cover for Rallying on your existing comprehensive policy. The additional cover for Rallying is NOT valid for Drag Racing or any other form of Racing.

Personal Accident Insurance was compulsory until a couple of years back. Now, it is provided by the FMSCI to all holders of an FMSCI Competition License. You can, however, have your own additional insurance cover. An example is posted below.

Can someone guide me how to reach the venue. I will be coming from the western suburbs via powai - airoli. From airoli onwards, we get Mhape - Rabale - Turbhe and its a straight road to Khargar. Where in Khargar, can someone assist. Are there signboards being put up for the event?

I went and checked out the place. The area and the preparations appear to be bigger than the earlier speedruns which were held in Kharghar. Also the drag strip is different this time. Here is a Wikimapia link of the exact location Speedway2011 Drag Strip New Mumbai The planning etc definetly seems to be better than the earlier events.

That is because the old road has some construcions on it now and also has a bus stop. This new road is the new strip which was used in our research and also for torquenite last year.

Back home after a great day! The event was very well organized. Great job Vivan!

Good participation from the bikes. There were loads of superbikes. But poor participation from the foreign category cars. Just the SL55 AMG and Bentley GT. Also the Evo X and a couple of Supras.

So here's the first batch of pics...SUPERBIKES!

Thanks to an entry price of Rs.750 for General and 1500 bucks for V.I.P. Even if the organisers would have cut down the general price to 500 bucks, there'd be double the crowd(and more profit)

Cyrus, all car runs were completed today. Tomorrow it's mostly bikes. More pics coming soon. But I have taken mostly vids(HD) of the cars which I'll upload on youtube tomorrow.
