Can't help but notice the similiarities b/n us . MAC is organising this right? Whats the budget? Be prepared for sleepless nights, ego clashes, financial losses, and above all lots and lots of euphoria!.

(PS. I did not mention the assorted supplies, just so that you won't loose all the steam )

BTW what stage is it now?Got any Title sponsors? Who are all the 'driving forces' behind this? Are they Bhpians? Anyway all the best wishes !!

this is not our first time running the show!
No one even knows about team-bhp .
'driving forces' its just some determined +hot and talented young guys like me and a few doing there work for the college and for themselves! "Title sponsors" we have some umm... actually i have no clue on the sponsors its not my department! Our budget is some where around 14 i guess

as if for now the last two days will be the best for the car section and the second day 7th will be the best for the bike section.

P.S plans may change so got to wait till the last 7 days to confirm!

I know, I was a part of something similar @ TCR around three years back.
We didn't have a title sponsor back then,and couldn't get one despite slashing down the tariffs significantly.
