The Madras racing circuit gets a makeover


MMRT track days have multiple sessions for cars and bikes, priced at Rs 4000 for a half day session if you bring your own car. This would include 3 or 4 sessions of approximately 25 minutes each. You can also ‘arrive and drive’ the fleet of (old) Volkswagen Polo Cup cars for a fee of Rs 9000 for a 25 minute session, which includes fuel, tires and a mechanic to help you set up the car for you. The trail is super fun, very accessible for beginners and the open house is growing in popularity day by day. In fact, September was probably the most active month on the track in the past year. And in October, too, the track has already been occupied for 20 days, with a chance that more events will be added soon.

The only requirements for an open day are an ISI approved helmet for riders and riders (as well as passengers / passengers if applicable) and an appropriate leather bike suit for riders. The leathers can also be rented on the track itself.

New facilities

“The marshals are absolutely thrilled,” exclaimed Vicky when I asked her about the new marshals littering the track. The newer posts are better designed and closed from the elements and if you’ve been baked in the Chennai sun, you know that’s a big plus. Other changes include a self-contained drag racing control room, placed at one end of the MMRT drag track, equipped with communication and networking facilities, air conditioning, toilets and air conditioning. a good view on the starting line. A bright spot for us is also the new media and commentary room, which also has great seating, internet connectivity, a live stream of the race and a soundproof room for high quality commentary. . The cameras covering the track have also been upgraded to high definition cameras, to improve the quality of the livestream.
