... And I wish someone from us/CarWale becomes one.


I'm basically from Bihar; relocated here in Gujarat for years, and am a banker by profession. I have owned Enfield Bullet 350CC for 24 years (1985-2009); Tata Indica Turbo for 6 years (2006-2012); Tata Manza Elan Quadrajet since 2012 to present; and Tata Hexa XT since Oct 2018.

I think Ashish has said that, as under (ready reference):

....You need to get the basics right and have to start from the lower levels of motor-racing. Get familiar with Go-Karting and try to participate in some of the national level championships. If you are able to impress some gods out there, you might be picked up by them to race for their teams. 

..... It is not just about speed at all. It is about fitness, concentration, reflexes, accuracy, braking points, turning points, hitting the kerb right and more importantly, knowing your machine.

..... Start with Go-Karting, race at national level championships, graduate to FISSME which will have you drive a single seater race car with Maruti 800 engine......

Hi everyone,

I really did not think that such an interest would be attracted towards this thread. I would like to thank everyone in here for showering good words for me I have tried to explain as explicitly and as simply as I could  about the basics of motorsports, hope people are finding it helpful. As mentioned by Pankaj, please refer the previous posts.

As for my racing experiences, it was fun, is all I can say!!! I raced the FISSMEs and tested the LGBs. It will get very technical if I start explaining it, so what I would do instead is do an article around it sometime and post it somewhere.. perhaps in the forum itself.

Ashish,

Yes, an artical in the forum will be beneficial. 

Besides, I would request here if you could also post an article on Auto Expo you just attended.  I understand it would be quite time consuming with so many cars out there (even if you summarised it), but it I feel it would really be worthwhile & first hand review of CarWale (you yourself attended it).

Thanks.

Gaurav, it's all mentioned in detail by Ashish at post #3 (page #1). Please go through it. If you have anything to ask/discuss beyond what is mentioned therein, you can post your query here - it will lead to further discussions in the benefit of all.  Thanks.
