Banglore man I dont think the Tf guys would run in the speedrun man if it was Mumbai it would be great but might try to make it as spectators in Banglore and even would love to meet the Bangy Tbhpians

Off topic, but I somehow find the Speed Run events over commercialised for its own good. I mean, yeah, you get to see all the best cars and stuff since its so popular, but the nature of this kind of racing is inherently illegal and it belongs to the streets with no media or police knowing anything about it. This is why I went to Khargar recently, but deliberately missed the Speed Runs of 2003 and 2004...

I thoroughly enjoyed the SpeedRun!! It was one of the best 48 hours of 2004.

Maybe when it started, but drag racing has reached a stage where every country has started recognising it as a part of motorsport. Maybe it originated on the streets, but these days, it's as big as any other motorsporting event.

Infact, most of the recently built F1 circuits have an inbuilt "Drag-strip".
