I moved to Bangalore from Hyderabad 3 months back.
I will join in for the go-kart competitive race if its go. I have raced quite often @Runway9, Hyderabad but have no idea about any of the Bangalore tracks.
Also I would be interested in track days over the weekend and will bring along my Fiesta 1.4

There is some bad news for the time being. Amaron guys are hosting a race on the 5th, 6th and 7th of September. So the track is out of bounds for all. We are planning to push the event by a week.

Also, we can turn this into a family meet too. I have arranged for the lounge bar to be open only to TBHPians. The alcohol rates are pretty good (beer @ 125 a bottle) and the buffet is around 280 bucks. Then there is paintball as well to go along with the go-karting. I think E-Zone as a venue should suit our requirements.

Also the club owners have suggested to start the go-karting at around 8pm on Saturday night. We can have the bar open till late in the night and maybe into the early hours of the morning as well. So come on guys. Get the numbers rolling. One doesn't get to party till late in Bangalore anymore.

PS: All those interested in track days and confirming for the event kindly send in your confirmations to +919900665757.

Yes, my dear. I am getting a bit old and too fat you see. Not as fit as I used to be. Besides, you are not there either (very few others take the initiative). Lets plan up once you head back.

You tell us. You're the regular one at the track, maybe you should organise it.

Alive, and busy in shifting houses. Either ways the meet did happen. A few of us did eventually land up on the mentioned dates and had fun go-karting. Others only post up here and never turn up mohnish.

I had just been to Innovative Film City today. Velocity, the go-karting track is quite big. Not too technical, but really wide enough to have atleast 5 karts go side by side into every corner. Though at Rs 200 for 4 laps, its quite a expensive affair.

PS: Mohnish, you can drop me a call to find me because I hardly log in these days. I am sure we have plenty of friends who could give you my number or you could send me a PM.

Rs. 200 for 4 laps and that too not that long is very expensive. Any other Karting meet happening ?

Dude I really pity that track, looking at the 2 seater karts I felt like throwing up. The regular carts are also not to fun either and if your quich and through traffic at the last corner you could add in close to 7 laps, well thats what I got to do or may be they give VIP members Xtras. The track forget being techinical its pathetic, they even come to teach you to drive even after they see you wearing a racing helmet with tear-offs and gloves, shows how professional people are around there. On that account so any chance off meeting up on a Sunday for a Go-Karting meet at Grips People.
