The Aamby Valley airstrip once again played a host to drag-racing enthusiasts from different parts of the country. The 2015 Valley Run, on January 10th – 11th, witnessed participants astride machines with various cubic capacities in an attempt to set the best quarter-mile time. Over 7,000 spectators attended the two-day event in Aamby Valley City.
The participants came in with their modified motorcycles and cars stripped down to their bare mechanical essentials in the interest of reducing weight.
The Valley Run is India’s Biggest Drag Racing Event which takes place on a secluded airstrip. Organized by Elite Octane, the event attracted around over 380 competitors, who were segregated into different classes according to engine size, make and modifications. They were then allowed one practice run to get their launch right before the final run. Those who had a jumpstart were allowed another run, but at the cost of a penalty fine.
This will be the third edition of the event, promoted by Elite Octane which will see cars and bikes of various designs and horsepower blitz down the 402-meter drag strip in pursuit of the fastest time. Last time around, a tuned Kawasaki ZX-14R, set the record time of a scarcely unbelievable 9.843 seconds for a quarter mile!
The highlight of The Valley Run 2015 was the Nissan GT-R, the car that can reach a top speed of 193 mph (311 km/h). In the last edition, Nissan GT-R clocked the fastest time of 11.268 seconds – extremely impressive for a 1.7-tonne street car. If that’s not enough, Various racing Cars & Bikes of brands like Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Harley Davidson, Ferrari, Porche, KTM & Audi R8 were also present at the event.
