    Kari Track at CBE is not free unlike the MMSC track at chennai. Also there is no pay and practise scheme at Kari. YOu have to strike some deal or rent the trak for an entire day.
    Best is to land at chennai and have some fun by paying per session. Works cheaper and the track is better than Kari.

    I will ask to director when i go there next time.

    But normally just need to have bike license (and paid). But i think that is only for special races, not for all TVS races. I will ask because i don't know more.

    Previously (last year), I have asked if there is available bike for rent on the track , but they said no.

    I know only that, maybe other people here have better informations.

    We are trying to find if someone in Chennai who provides bikes on rent. Uptil now i've only found people who rent Bullets and scooters.

    Agree with on you on the getting tired after a trackday part, especially in this killing heat.


    @Chennai guys

    Anyone knows this fellow?

    Yes, the road is ok, i go often to Chennai by bike (every month) for personal things...

    But i go to the track for practicing not for riding on the road. And if something go wrong on the track, maybe not possible to come back by bike...
    For the moment i am doing it with my bike which i use every days. But when i will get my racing suit, I will take another bike just for the track (i don't know what for the moment, maybe one used RTR FI from one friend) and remove few part and after that maybe no legal to use it on the road...
    And also, when i come back from the track, i am tired and bored by riding on public road...

    Tomorrow i will go again by bike, but i prefers to go by truck (more safe, less tired, can bring more things...) but that is little to much expensive for me alone.

    2:05's are for (group b) full blown Apache's and 2:02 for full blown R15's. Best time for stock R15 on full track is 2:15

    First practicing day on Sunday 26th April.

    I am using my mp3 player with one sound recorder function for getting my laps time. The recorder is in my tank bag, and i hit the bag when crossing end line... I have started to turn in 2m54s per lap (full track) at the end of half day (37 laps after) i turned in 2m40s (Pulsar 150cc).

    Track director said me there is one magnetic laptimers system. But i don't know where to get recording system to put on my bike (in India).
    I know one brand because famous in France, that is Alfano Alfano data acquisition .
    There is something similar here ? or need to get that from foreign?
