Default Buddh Circuit - Asia Road Racing Championship in October 2016!

THE 5TH ROUND OF ASIA ROAD RACHING CHAMPIONSHIPS 2016

Come September 2016, the Buddh International Circuit could be the venue of International Motorsport again - this time of the Two Wheeled verity

If the FIM - Asia, calendar, just out, in their FB has the authenticity one would like to believe it has - then have a look at item 5 below;

Hope this would be a new beginning for many more international events in Buddh - which still is a fantastic circuit and still is in great shape.

Hopefully we would have more news on this soon

To all Bikers Out there

Best Regards & Ride Safe

The dates and the Event is now confirmed.

It will be a feast for the wheeler race fans as its slated to have over 15 races over the weekend for the ARRC classes including a Super bike class with a field of over 20 riders in that class alone

Closer to 100 bikes are coming from other Asian countries, in all.

Best Regards & Take Care

The setup for the event is in full swing

As can be seen from the poster - the entry will be free.

Though the race dates are on 1st & 2nd October - 30th September will be a free practice day and there will be a lot of action on that day as well.

There will be some good races as this is the penultimate round of the championships for 2016.

Also you can see the Indian Riders battling it out for the various "one make" championships of the FMSCI NRC series

Hope the NRC two wheeler racing fans will enjoy this

Not to forget the last round of the VW India - Vento Cup Championships which will run through the weekend as well

Best Regards and Drive/Ride Safe

Event Report:

Last weekend the Buddh Circuit was reverberating with the sound of howling engines and aspiration of a bunch of young Indian “riders” and “drivers along with a bunch of 90 odd seasoned veterans from overseas (Japan, Indonesia, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand and Sri Lanka mostly) competing in the ARRC Championships – Round 5

Considering the presence of a large number of “Bikers” from the NRC Region (as seen on the normal track days at Buddh) the crowds for meet was pathetic.

One of the fellow Marshals summed it up well “Crowds will come only if there would be some song/dance entertainment and not to watch Motorsport”

The action on track really compensated the lack of it off-track
The overseas “veterans”, I believe would have provided some lessons for our aspiring youngsters competing in the following categories as part of the NRC Round.
  1. One Make Championship - Honda CBR 250 Cup 2016
  2. One Make Championship – TVS Apache RTR Cup 2016
  3. One Make Championship – Suzuki Gixxer Cup 2016

The way the overseas riders were throwing around there bikes were really worth seeing. The ARRC was in the following categories
  1. UnderBone 130 cc Championships
  2. Asia Production 250 cc Cup
  3. Asia Supersport 600 cc Cup
  4. Asia Dream Cup 250 cc Cup (Honda)
Not to be outdone by the two wheeled verity there was some good action from the 4 wheeled tribe by way of the VW Vento Cup - Final Round

Let the following photos speak for the action – Photos with the courtesy of a good friend and professional photographer Aditya Bedre (link to his site below)

You can also follow all the action in the following link as well

Hope you all like them

This is what most riders saw of Antony Keith West (Aus) who won both the races of Asia Supersport 600 cc

A welcome change I saw in the Pits (specially in India) was the VW Vento Drivers were getting involved hands on in the set-up of their cars. I think its a welcome change that I am sure brought in by the VW Motorsports India.

Mr. Sirish Vissa one of the key players of VW Motorsports India, (extreme right on the pic below) it would appear is doing a good job with putting the right attitude in their drivers.
