1) One 2006 Formula 3 Dallara car with a Toms Toyota engine.
 
2) Two Formula BMW Cars
 
3) Two Formula Renault 2 litre cars.
 
Former Formula 3 ace and Alpha Romeo British Touring Car team principal, Gary Ayles and renowned driver coach Andy Pardoe from the UK will be on site to train and educate young drivers with the sophisticated telemetry data systems.
 
Formula BMW, Formula 3, Formula Renault V6 and A1 GP Engineer Patrick Roberts who has engineered Akbar Ebrahim, Narain Karthekeyan, Karun Chandhok and Armaan Ebrahim in various championships will be on site to educate young drivers the nuances of mechanical and aero race car dynamics.
 
The programme will be towards the end of April or early May 2008. The venue and the costs will be indicated to all in the next few weeks. This will be a unique opportunity for all teams to give their young drivers a huge opportunity to drive the sophisticated Formula BMW and Formula Renault 2000 cars in India.
 
The Formula 3 car will be put through its paces by Armaan Ebrahim and will then be available to test drive for those who show exemplary discipline and skills in the FBMW and Formula Renault 2000 cars.
 
And, this is just the beginning. A lot more is in store for motorsporting enthusiasts in 2008.
 
Regards

Hey everyone,

Yes, I wasn't here for long, hence could not contribute towards this any sooner. I see a lot of activity happening and a lot of guys becoming interested. Now, I would like to point out that the mail received by Arjun from Akbar talks about the international series. As I have always said, it is imperative that you make it big in the Indian series first, else, if approaching the international series directly, it will be hugely expensive.

If at all you are looking at doing something of this magnitude, there's a racing school called Bridgestone Racing Academy in Canada that can be helpful too. You could write to Donna Elliot at donna@race2000.com or info@race2000.com. She can be reached on tel: (905) 983-1114

This post is for Arjun and Parag and I hope they read this.

For Go Kart C'ships, you could try and get into the JK Tyre or MRF Go Karting championships from where you could climb the ladder. Start off by participating in a couple of events which happen near your place.

@ Arjun

If I'm not mistaken, there was a Go karting track called Destination Point on Mathura Road, but the last I heard, it'd closed down. There's one track called 32nd Milestone in Gurgaon, you could try that out.

Hi Arjun,

It's sad to know that even 32nd Milestone has shut its operation down. Now, I am afraid, there are no more Go-Karting tracks in the NCR. There are however a couple of professional race tracks at Sriperumbedur (MMST) and Coimbatore (Kari Speedway) where national level races are held regularly.

As for racing schools, Naren Karthikeyan started his Team NK where he trains racers who've proved themselves or have shown good potential. You could get in touch with either MAI (Motorsport Association of India) or FMSCI to get more details. Furthermore, you could contact Akbar Ebrahim since he runs MECO Motorsport at Chennai and could be of immense help. You could reach him at:  (044) 42125139 /40.
