Curious to know which airstrip this is. Fantastic place for them supercars to unfold their wings. And practically, this is where the guys must race instead of the streets. Wonder who has such a place around Bangalore. If this is the Kolar airstrip then I would be surprised since its now heavily secured and no one knows what's going on inside.

Whoa... this is freaking awesome. How does a mere mortal attend one of these events? I would love to hear these babies scream in real life. Thanks for the videos, shows how much potential this country has for enthusiasts!

Nice Videos. Its good to see supercars put through their paces in a safe environment.

Exotic Automobiles. They should consider firing the person who designed the logo, they've ripped it off from Electronic Arts.

I pointed that out on their Facebook page. They can be in trouble for plagiarizing the logo. Saying that because I work at EA.

Just had a word with the club founder, he says that the logo was made back in 2012 and it shall be altered now so as to avoid any sort of friction

Guys, logo discussed enough. A.K's latest clarification says that the logo is being redesigned.

Some off-topic posts have been deleted. Lets now focus on the cars please.

Here are two more videos for us mortals to savour.

First up, Porsche Turbo S vs Porsche Turbo S! Difference? One is RSMSpec and the other is PorscheSpec. :P



And second, a horse vs a bull. The 458 Italia vs a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4!



The result is a good demonstration of how a good driver can make up for a deficit of close to 130 bhp.

Apart from the air filters and the driver on the red car, both cars are ditto
Money is on the jockey, not the horse!

Absolutely.

This is all the more visible in the 458 vs the Aventador. Even with AWD and 130 horses more, the Aventador isn't able to get away from the 458 as much as you would expect it to.

Awesome videos. Not sure how I missed this thread. One doubt though. The roads leading to the air strip are not at all super car friendly. Did they flatbed tow all of them?

They drove the cars all the way to the air strip. Got pics of them driving over the poor stretch as well but cannot share them here as the organiser of the event wanted the location to remain under wraps.
Thank you!

Man that GT3 RSMSPEC was smoking everything except the Speciale !!! .

I thought the Aventador slightly backed off before the finish line as per the video.

Awsome thread !!! Great to see these drag races in India !!

Yes, I stand corrected. Thanks.

BTW, are the start-finish times also getting recorded in these races ?

It would be great to see those.

The VBox got shipped only a week later after the drags, so no timings as of now. However, the winter run will happen soon, so maybe then we will have the times
