Bangalore witnessed some hard core racing action on the January 9,2016, in the form of quarter mile drag races for cars. Quarter mile drag races have not been held in Bangalore for a long time, and this particular event was organised by Inner Line Racing Club (ILRC).
The races were conducted on a section of NICE Ring Road, which was shut off for commuters, since the area was still under construction. The organisers managed to find a nice, flat stretch for the cars to unleash all the horsepower.
Cars that took place ranged from a turbocharged Maruti 800 to Supra. There were also diesel cars that were tuned for more than just fuel economy.
Some of the main attractions were the really loud, and fast Honda Citys that were tuned by Race Concepts by Joel Joseph and a few cars tuned by ace tuner, Raj Hingorani. There were also Maruti Zens that proved to be faster than spec'd up BMWs on the quarter mile tarmac.
Overall, the Quarter mile races were well appreciated by enthusiasts as Bangalore had not seen such action for a very long time. Quarter mile races for motorcycles will be held on January 16, 2016.
