OT: I can guess where you ended on each of those races - bringing up the rear. .. Those go-karts dont have much pulling power

LOL.. but consider this point too: you can enter into corners faster! the additional weight wouldnt let the kart slide!

Default Various racetracks around India

Can someone point out the major racetracks around India which are open to the public, either via track day events or straight up day rentals? There is a big one opening up outside Delhi, in Noida correct? When will that be ready? What is the closest track to Mumbai?

There are only 2 in India, both in TN. One in Chennai and one in Coiambatore. The one is Chennai is the best.
