Thanks for revving hard here!
So we found the best place and got settled down by 9.00AM. The first surprise on track was dog running at 30+kmph. You can see that picture in my previous post. The whole crowd whistled like anything, must say overwhelming response.
Then came the safety car [Ford Fiesta] very fast in the neat stretch & braked very hard! Then suddenly he reversed the car with the max speed [35-45kmph], everyone was expecting some doughnuts! But a shocking experience for everyone. That guy rammed the car into the sides & broke the rear tail lamps & bumpers. Whole crowd started laughing after seeing the safety car in accident.
Now the time was around 9.50am. Sirens started ringing off. Vrooming sound was heard all around the tracks. Yes, it was 150cc Bike Race. We were searching for the bikes. From the pit lanes raced hard to the track & took their position for the formation lap. Babes dressed in typical MRF dress hopped on the track to make the event hotter.
Time boards with 5mins, 3mins, 2mins & Finally 1 min was displayed! All the bikers was revving to their max screeching everyone’s ears. Red Lights were on & with all wheelies racers zipped away leaving tyre marks. It’s a 7 lap race & smoking tyres around the corners was fun to watch. In 3rd Lap around the last corner, a racer with very bad luck skidded & managed to escape with no injuries. He got up & moved the bike himself off the track & quitted the race. There was tough competition between 2nd & 3rd racer & both seems to be extremely talented.
In the final lap, 3rd racer was trying hard in the C12 for overtake & he lost his balance badly & went out of track. Everyone was shocked to see that! He skidded away for almost 200mtrs & finally hit the tyre walls on the edge. No surprise. He went unconscious. Yellow flags on the tracks with safety cars & ambulance making its way. Race was ended. You can see that bike above that guy & he is completely unconscious.
All the great start, ended up sad. Yes, this is what is called as Racing. A Hell in each & every corners. Nobody knows what will happen the next moment. It’s not all about winning. Racing is all about mind, time, perfection, pressure, skills & lot of presence on track.
Stay tuned for 600cc, 1600cc F3 updates & lot more to follow...
