    Red Bull Kart Fight returns to India in 2018

    After a successful 1st edition last year, the Red Bull Kart Fight is back in India for its 2018 edition. The national-level amateur karting tournament will be held in Mumbai, Gurugram, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Baroda.

    The format of the tournament is a little roundabout, so stay with us through this next bit:

    One-day qualifiers will be held in Chennai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Baroda. The winner of the one-day qualifiers from each of these cities will progress directly to the national finals.

    Meanwhile, city qualifiers will be conducted for three months in Mumbai and Gurugram, separately. Simultaneously, each city will host a round of the city finals at the beginning of each respective month. Each of these rounds will feature the top 20 drivers from the city qualifiers held in the previous month.

    At the end of three months, the top three drivers from each of the city finals (nine drivers from Mumbai, nine from Gurugram) will then battle it out in the national finals, along with the four winners of the one-day qualifiers – a total of 22 drivers from across the country.

    The national winner will get an all-expense-paid trip to the Formula One season finale at Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi, to be held on November 25, 2018. Last year’s edition of the event was won by Monish Jain, the son of a diamond merchant from Mumbai, who also won the trip to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

    Those interested in participating can head to Smaaash in Mumbai and Gurgaon; Meco Kartopia in Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai; and Erda’s Speedway in Baroda. The standings will be decided by timing systems that are accurate to 1/100th of a second.

    Poll of the month

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
