      Somehow I get a feeling that these vehicles gets severe damages upon crash. Is that right?

      Maybe its a wild idea. But it is my idea.
      Was dreaming about getting an old 800 chopped and move the engine to the mid-rear and try powering the rear wheels.

      Anyone have contacts to get on of these single-seater's rented / bought ?

      I'll ask around and see what comes up and post it here.

      Doubt it. The chassis would have been fabricated to mate with a certain engine. Also one must keep in mind if the rest of the components can handle the addition power, torque, weight etc.
      So are these actually custom made ?
      Or do they have a supplier for the frame/chassis alone ?
      Should be Coimbatore made I guess.

      I know people who will rent out the single seaters. Might be a bit pricey to buy one.

      All the cars are built at LG Motorsports in CBE.

      The question is even if its 15k / day, will they allow multiple drivers ?
      Per day is rather misleading as we can use the track only from 2-5. So its all for 3 hours right ?

      Group renting is very very appealing. Is it possible?

      Yes, it is for the 2-5:30 session only.

      We can even hit CBE actually. Let me try to find out what it would cost. Give me a few days time.

      Buy your own car..

      Issues -
      1. How much does it exactly cost to own one?
      2. What Specs are you looking at - Engine - 800cc - are you really sure that you want a 800 cc and not a baleno 1.6. what if you get bored later on?
      3. Tires are bloody expensive. after a few runs you will need to change them. do all owners contribute here as well, irrespective whether they drive the vehicle?
      4. where will you store the vehicle when not in use?
      5. you will need a Trailer for this since you cannot drive it to and from the track.

      IMHO this is a recipe for disaster and common arguments. I'd rather pay the 15 or 20g drive it around the track and sleep peacefully at night's.

      Pros -
      1. It's fun to drive on track
      2. Ummmmmmmm
      3. ???

      Yeah it can get messy as you pointed out.
      But its too early to jump into conclusions or negative thoughts.
      Once we have some concrete info we can.
