hmmm . the key is slow in fast out ... refrence pts on the track are crucial. ... hair pin bends... u usually approach from the far end close in almos kiss the apex... while makin the turn leave the acc and lock the stearring wheel......... ok tell me if u drift?/// if u do then ur approach is too fast .. if u r slow in the may b u dun have the right exit lane... analyse the turn b4 gettin in the kart... take the 1st 2 laps observe.. then get it done

Hey Cd & lambo,

You guys should definitely go, it is really a superb track.
Top speed on the straight... im not sure, however it said the average speed was something like 42km/h (if you lap at about 41seconds).

To get there, go towards the international airport, when you come to the circle which goes left to the leela and right to the terminal, go towards the leela.
When the enterance of the leela is on the left, take that U-turn.
Go about 20meters and there is a small kacha lane on the left, follow that lane in and you are there.

cya

Hey guys,

Plan on going there tomorrow with friends.
Anyone been there off late and how does it compare with the one at powai?
Cheers
