Thanks for the update Shrivz. I'm wondering if there will be another category for a higher age group ... Damn I'm getting old :(

@prabhpreet: Unfortunately there is no category for a higher age group. Sorry!

@DRIV3R: Last time it was Rs. 2.4 Lac entry fee + Rs. 66,000 for the race gear + Damage Repair + Travelling & Accomodation. The branding area for sponsors was the Bootlid and C-Pillar.

This time, the entry fee will be in excess of Rs. 5 Lac and the branding area will be the Bonnet which is a premium spot.

You can look out for sponsors once you are selected for the Season.

Last time there was a fitness camp organized by VW for the drivers at the Taj in Ooty after Round 3. All this was a part of the event at no extra cost.

You do not get to Race cars of this caliber anywhere in the world at this price.

Hi Shrivz: After reading your previous thread on VW Polo cup, I searched the web and their website for the next season and was dreaming to become a part of this event. But due to the condition of age group our dreams are shattered now. What a Bad Luck!!!

All the youngsters are lucky. Do it as hard as you can. Best of luck man.

Keep the thread updated.
