India Speed Week will head to Bengaluru for Round 2 of its inaugural Drag Race Cup. The event will see cars and bikes blast down the quarter mile at the Jakkur Aerodrome from October 27-29, 2017.

The races follow a quarter-mile (402.336m) format, wherein the car or motorcycle that is the quickest to cover the distance is the winner in a given category.

The first round of the series took place at Aamby Valley earlier this year under the ‘Valley Run’ banner and registered over 600 entries. The quickest car at the event was Dhwanil Patel’s Lamborghini Huracan, wrapping up the quarter-mile run in 11.293sec. Meanwhile, Hyderabad’s Neeraj Sharma took top two-wheeler honours on his BMW S1000R with a time of 9.898sec.

The final round of the series is expected to take place at Kolkata in December.
