Nice pics and great turn out of cars! I wish more folks from Bangalore could turn up for this.
Seems like there were quarter mile drags like Lp560 vs 458 , M3 vs C63, R8 vs LP560 , CGT vs Rapide ! So anyone has results of these?

Something stuck me while leaning against the fence by the track watching the cars. The ground opposite the pits slopes away from the track. MMST can build an earth gradient there that looks on the straight to offer a spectacular view of the action on the straight and the pit lane.

Banisters should have been installed around the cars on display at the Hotel the day before. One super car owner became agitated over people touching his car though no one actually had then. His words made the on-lookers shy away. The banisters would have kept prying hands away from the cars.
+1 to your post ! I hope the management keeps that in mind, next time they organize an event of such proportions. We arrived at 10 and the Gallery was jam packed by then, Hope they put up bigger galleries for the spectators to be seated rather than being made to stand in scorching sun on the uneven surfaces next to the fences.

Sorry to be pedantic about it bro, the Black R8 V8 was APR tuned, After seeing a couple of videos of it scorching the track and once even the ECR, I must say it didn't live up to the mark, hope to see it perform better next time around.

Does anyone have a final count of the no. of races that occured ? We left after the Turbo had a run against the Rapide, Loved the way he effortlessly glided the Aston through the final corner after the drag had concluded, to the owner for that !

the r8 v8 had a clogged induction system and blocked airfilter due to previous track days , this was cleaned by the owner at the track itself but by that time all the runss were done , so he could nt get a run after that

Yes my bad. Sorry it is APR tuned. I agree that it did not live up to the mark. Neither did the Nissan 370Z. But overall the event was great, and I hope the next event at the MMST would be bigger and better nad louder.

Anyway here are some pics from the track.

Excellent turn out! I didnt expect so many beauties to turn up. N from the pictures, I gather that most of those lucious cars are based in chennai itself.

I am very impressed. Looks like a very colorful day at the Taj Coromandel.

The video of the drag race between the gallardo and Italia was awesome. It seemed like the gallardo driver wasnt quick enough when the flag was dropped, that 458 exhaust note is almost orgasmic.

This gives the Parx show quite a run for its money. Much smaller in scale and number of entrants but I am sure the Madras club will catch up soon.

I am actually surprised a metallic grey Nissan GT-R from Bangalore didnt turn up for the show?!

[quote=esteem_lover;2732842]Feel sad that i missed this one, more sad since my kids too had to miss this one. Hope there is another one in the near future.

I was at the inauguration of the MECC. The sponsors "Golden Homes" announced that the event will be held annually in the last weekend before Christmas, so the next event at the race track is fixed for the 23rd of December 2012. More cars, elaborate entertainment and comfort features are planned.
