Just in case one car veers off due to a blowout and goes into another car without the side impact beams, you can imagine the catastrophic results. Similarly for the bumpers, you could have bits and pieces flying off.

3) Limiting mods on class basis, personally think that they should not have been there, however no limits on mods are imposed on the open classes. Note: I think the organisers need to relook at the braking distances as the speeds on the track have been going higher each year.

4) Well thank you organisers for finally accepting that NOS is a forced induction method and treating it accordingly, and we do hope as the stakes get higher a better set of rules are formulated before each season.
Very well said psycho , i agree with ur points .. I think u should be consulted by the organisers while making the rules ..

its better to take a autorickshaw because it is far from the station tell the auto guy to take you to that tata memorial and when you see the venue get down because the venue is a little early from tata memorial but remember tata memorial
