I am in Pune currently, but have not heard of anything coming up around the area.
Do reveal what is your idea. I have a feeling I might be interested
Okay then, Eventually I have to reveal the plans anyway. However as this is quite an undertaking I will not go to deep into the details as yet.
I am preparing a race class of five different groups with two makes of cars. The point is to bring racing to an affordable level giving talent to prove itself on a low budget in the entry level.
Don't get over excited as yet as it still is a long way to go. I have drafted regulations and have done a lot of associated preparations, which is the easy part. The hard part is still ahead of it.
What makes it rather complicated is that you have currently only few dedicated tracks in the country and make shift tracks are not as easy thanks to authorities. However, the challenge alone justifies the effort.
Any information about any track or any place that can be turned into a track (with the permission of the respective owners and/or authorities) will bring this project closer to realisation.
Thanks for the help.
The track near Pune is a dirt track at this moment in time because the owners lack funding to complete it. As far as I know it was meant to become part of a rally school.
