Thumbs up

M Power ,

You can change the driver at any time as long the driver has the necessary documents and necessary qualifications . (Ref: to Karun's Case)

I guess we need to see a change in driver , and may be then we can expect some better results in the races.

Wishing Team India the best of luck from my side ...

Hey BC
I know KC and Armaan were nominated as the 2 drivers and you can change between them, for example put Ebrahim in the car and KC on the bench. But, can you bring in a totally new driver......like NK for instance.

Reason I ask is because South Africa had a diferent driver for Brands Hatch and for Germany they brought in Thomas Shekter who just wrapped up IRL season in the states.

I know NK needs some rest, but our country could sure use some expertise in A1. National honor at stake man. Cant let Adam Khan get away like this.

Exclamation

yes M Power ,

I dont see why they cant do that . In fact I was told that they even tested 2 more drivers besides KC & AE , for the AI India team.

This is not a company backed team , and its Team India , so i dont think there should be any problem in getting some new drivers or as a matter of fact Aarman to drive the next race or even NK if he decides to drive for the series.

I would feel nice if we field some one who is in a position to get the on the podium and definately beat ADAM Khan , and other also in the race .

the pride of the country is at stake and we need to put our best drivers in the seat so that the TRI COLOR is on top .

Lets hope they get their act together really fast .

I however Tried calling Vicky Chandok to find out , but getting his voice mail. Also have shot a mail to KC tofind out more . will advise when i get a reply.

In the mean while best of Luck To Arman . hopefully we wil be onthe podium this time ..
