According to an official the second round which was held in late May drew a considerable amount of entries in both the motor car and motor bike events and this time too they have had a good response.

As usual the popular events like SLGT 3500cc, SL H 1600cc along with one make classes of the Mini, Nissan March, Ford Laser, Formula Ford and the Formula Mclarens 1300cc events are scheduled to be held during the day. The championship will also give an opportunity for newcomers who won the Go-Karting racing event which was held recently to flex their muscles with the experience drivers in the Formula Mclarens 1300 and also the Suzuki Maruti/Alto events.

Apart from the motor car events the organizers will work off a host of motor cycle events.
