Default accident @ khargar drag race.

a friend of mine, staying at khargar called last night and said that ia maruti fellow had an accident with a biker at the race and the biker died on the spot. i dont know whether these are confirmed news as when i was at khargar at 9.00 pm there were no signs of any race being held.

but if these news is true then god only save these racers and may the deceased's soul rest in peace.

Drags at kharghar?? Dont have a clue cause generally someone announces on TB if there is a drag event at kharghar. No such announcement though

Even When I Left From My Factory I Had To Take The Turbhe Road To Nerul As The Bridge To Vashi Was Blocked.

For Satya, I Agree With U Nc As He Never Even Mentioned That He Is Coming To Mumbai.

sorry for the late reply , i was present there during the drags and the guy is still alive ..he has got head injuries and some fractures ..and the drag started only after 11 like every week....the 800 fellow was showing off his skills doing 360's and suddenly came in the path of a dragging bike...then wat happened was a very bad crash..the rider and the bike just went up many feets in the air..and 800 went and hit the divider and the driver just came out from the front taking the windshield with him...every one thought the rider was dead cos he was not breathing and many guys tried to get him to breath by putting pressure on his chest ...but he was saved as he was moved to the mgm hospital in cbd in jst few minutes after the accident,the drags mostly bikes and some sbks and some modded esteems , zens ,lancers take place every saturday after 11.
the bikers come in huge numbers in groups about 150 and more...and many stipped down rx100s,rd350's, karizmas , pulsars....these guys really prepare the bike for the drags , like making it light weight..porting the heads and changing the fuel jets and sprockets and fight each other...and also try out do the rival groups in stunts and skills..but overall its a total chaos and every week it comes to an end because of a accident and this week it was really bad.
cheers.
