Yes we all love speed. But most of us have not been able to enjoy the speed responsibly. People down south always had the Kari motor speedway and the MMSC, but going all the way to Tamil Nadu with their motorcycles and cars was not really a very viable option for people living near the national capital. The launch of the Buddh International Circuit was the best that could happen to the speed freaks in the north! And to give people a taste of what it all means about, the BIC is hosting its second open track day for the general public.
The second edition of the BIC Time Trial will be held on May4. 2014. You can drive your own car or motorcycle at the circuit, provided you fulfil the necessary terms and conditions. There are karting sessions as well. You can also partake in the ‘Arrive and Drive’ section in the Volkswagen Polo Cup cars! And hold your breath for it gets even better; you can even enjoy taxi rides of the circuit in the Mercedes Benz course cars which include the SLS!!!
The sessions will begin from 9AM and continue till 6PM. If you have always wanted to drive or ride on a proper Formula One circuit, well here is your chance. The registration procedure is as follows:
- Send a mail stating your booking request to email@example.com.
- You will receive an email consisting of bank details, registration form, pricing list and terms and conditions.
- Pay the amount and send the organisers the confirmation on the mail sent to you.
- Get the confirmation mail sent by the organisers printed and bring it along with you on 4th May 2014.
A 45 minute car session will cost you just 5,000 rupees, while a bike session of the same duration will cost you 4,000 rupees. There is even a 5 per cent discount for ladies. Although the main grand stand will be closed, the Paddock Club will be open for all at just 150 bucks. Helmets can be rented at the venue and racing suits are compulsory for motorcyclists.
Now this is for all those of you who would not be able to make it on the 4th, there are plans to hold a similar event in August, so keep your fingers crossed.
Hop you guys have a blast there, don’t forget to wear your seatbelts and helmets, ride/drive safely.
