A Race track is born!

Islamabad race track

Islamabad race track

I once said in one of my articles, that the reason why no one has ever built a racetrack in Pakistan is because the  Pakistani land has been cursed by some Martians so that no one can ever build a racetrack here.

Well, it seems that the Martians visit my blog quite regularly. Because they’ve finally lifted the unbreakable curse from Pakistan. Islamabad is now home to the first ever racetrack of Pakistan. This is great news for all the Pakistani motorsports enthusiasts as well as the thousands of people who own really expensive sports cars but can’t really use them for anything more than posing.

So far all I know about this racetrack is that it is located near Rawal lake at Lake View Park in Islamabad and it is only 1.5 km long. The first race of this track is being held in October.

Thanks Martians!

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…)
