The Valley Run 2014 : Day 1 LIVE Coverage

India’s largest drag racing competition, The Valley Run starts in a few minutes. Rush Lane is present at the venue to bring you LIVE updates and images of participants, motorcycles, cars, supercars, and everything else on offer. Stay tuned.

The Valley Run 2014  Day 1 LIVE CoverageOrganized by Elite Octane Inc., the motorsport event is affiliated to FMSCI (Federation of Motor Sports Club of India) rules and regulations. Apart from this, it is also recognized by international governing bodies like IM and FIA. The venue, Aamby Valley’s air-strip, located at an altitude of 2300ft, is perfect for hosting such an event.

Just like last year, this year as well, the star of the event will be Rickey Gadson, who holds the record of winning the most number of AMA drag racing races in history of sport. He has already arrived at the venue. Rickey will try to break his quarter mile record later today riding on ZX14R with Shinko Hookup, his own traction compound.

Apart from him, there will also be other interesting duels. Sit back and relax as we start our LIVE coverage of the event straight from the venue.

@rickeygadson had a tough time entering India. This is what he says :) Just arrived here in India with the Shinko Hookup and you would have thought I brought drugs into the country as much as security was harassing me for receipts and the reason for bringing it here. As a last resort I showed them my poster and things got better quickly!
