First International Drag Racing event in India Day 01
The first day of India’s first International Drag Racing Event saw racers from across the country gather to show their passion. The event is being held at the Sahara Aamby City airstrip, near Lonavala. If you missed it, today is the last day. Here are some images from the first day.
Rickey started racing at the age of 5 yrs and his first pro stint came when he was 13 yrs old. Rickey has won a total of 9 times, and has the most number of AMA drag race wins under his belt in the history of sport. He too put on his suit and showed us what he can do on a motorcycle at a dragstrip. We managed to upload some drag racing videos too, you can watch them below.
On Day 01, it was two wheels that burnt rubber on airstrip. Today, it will be four wheels which will have a go. If you are planning to visit, entry charge per visitor is INR 1,500. Once inside, you will find seating arrangements made next to the airstrip. Food and beverages are available, but with 5 Star rates. We saw people carrying their own food and drinks inside the venue. A more detailed report with more images and videos from Day 2 can be found here.
