Some very fast cars and bikes on a long well laid out airstrip definitely calls for a lot of action in motion. The 2013 Valley Run at Aamby Valley was just that and a lot more!

Imagine seeing a bright orange Nissan GT-R lined up next to a Porsche 911 Turbo all ready to let loose the moment the lights on Christmas tree go off. It’s a battle every car enthusiast would give an arm and a leg for. And that was just one of the epic battles lined up throughout the day at the 2013 Valley Run.

So what are these drags about? If you think it’s just about two machines lining up at the start line and going all guns blazing till the finish line, you couldn’t be any more wrong. What it takes to get to that finish line in the quickest way possible is lightening quick reflexes when the lights go off, some extremely precise gearshifts and last but not the least, a decent amount of horsepower to carry you through.

Now there have been quite a few drag events in Mumbai and down south as well and what has been noticed is that there is quite a fan following for the sport. With international tuners coming down to tune our humble sedans and hatchback thereby turning them into speed demons. Bikes of all kinds right from the humble Yamaha RX100 right to the likes of the Suzuki Hayabusa lining up to get their share of the quarter mile rush. Off late however, due to space constraints thanks to concrete jungle sprouting up in the least expected places, the drag racing scene had been lying dormant for quite some time. That’s where Elite Octane Inc. decided to step in and stir up the scene.
