Chances it might get postponed.....you never know with these speed runs

Also heard that they are changing the format. Sounded weird. They plan to have a knockout competition and head to head runs.

I thought drags are elapsed time (1/4mile times)

Kharghar may not be the ideal place...but its certainly better than reclamation...in the past 3 years there has been 2 really serious accidents..even though they were driver's mistake they would'nt have been that serious had the same taken place say on an airststrip..apart froma scenic veiw recalamation is no good...very clustered,little/no space to ride/drive off post the drag shhotout.

dude r u kidding me, just grow up man, i think u havent witnessed those 2 major mishaps, yup its true that both accidents took place because of riders fault, and practically reclamation is not the proper place for drag, actually not for any race,
yeh pawan hans is good but i dont think govt.will allow, whatever it is, its auto cars and the organisers headache, we just need the race as far as safety is concerned we our self need to be "ALERT"

reclamation is a little too cooped up.
gharghar would be better.

are you sure about this knockout format? it sounds outrageous!!

Hey Guys... Had met with Hormazd Sorabjee at the Auto Expo. He says the mumbai drag will be 26th/27th Feb. He also confirmed that there will be a drag at Delhi and Chennai too.

can anyone tell me wer can i post my bikes n stunts pics,,,thx,,,
i would love if its at khargar but i dont think they will organise at khargar cause its too far for mumbaikars speically for town people there will be less crowd compared to last year as not many people will prefer to travel for more than 1 hour as traffic at chembur is killing.

17th feb can be because mumbai is busy end of jan as there is auto show and also feb as there is times mumbai motor show so after that there will be drags thats a good start for mumbaikars in 2006 lol

whether you like it or not it is going to bhe kharghar.
only the cream croud with come as its not centrally located.and even if you add all the locals up you wont get nearly as many as there were at last years reclamation run.

that is more than enough reason to change the venue.
besides at the rate the the event has been gaining polularity... reclamation would be too small to hold the crowd thats expected
