I do hope this keeps the rich racing history of Madras alive! The DBS Volante owner in Bangalore had spoken earlier to me and Manish, of his many experiences on the track decades ago.

Excellent stuff, will be a treat to see these beauties at one of the events!

Today's DC had an advt in the 1st page of Chennai Chronicle about the track day on 1-April-2012 for the exotic beauties, with the headline being about a Ferrari racing a Lamborghini. Sounds interesting and might come down to the track.
