The Racing Pakistan team is back with a change. After a number of go kart endurance races, this time they are on a talent hunt. The idea is that there will be three qualifying rounds in Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad. And at the end there will be a grand finale in which the top 10 racing drivers from all three cities will race against each other. There are handsome prizes for the podium finishers and a racing contract for the winner.

The so called “TopGear” car show…

Posted by nabeel on May 16, 2009

After a number of delays the so called “TopGear” car show is finally going to be held tomorrow (Sunday May 17th, 2009) at Walton Airbase in Lahore. It will be a combination of Drag racing and a sort of car show where you will be able to admire some really cool exotic cars. Sounds great!

I’m not sure if the the event goes by the name of “TopGear” or “Fast & Furious” but either way i’m not a big fan of their “innovative” name choice.

Anyway, I hope that it’s better organized and more exciting than the recently held TDCP drag race (which was a big mess…)
