As a technical failure in the timing equipment imported from the US, forced the cancellation of today's second and third (final) rounds of the MMSC-FMSCI Indian National Drag Racing Championship here, the title winners were declared on the basis of the results of the first round held at Taneja Aerospace at Hosur in November 2016.

Announcing the decision, Chairman of the Meet Farhan Vohra said "It is most unfortunate that we had to call off the final two rounds due to failure in the timing system''.

"We could not rectify the timing system despite our best efforts and even after consultations with the manufacturer in the United States. Today, we put in place an alternate timing system, but errors crept in due to the incompatibility of the system to Drag specific requirements.'',he added.

''We had no choice but to call off this weekend's programme after consulting the sport's governing body in India, the FMSCI'', he said.

"As a result, the champions in various categories were announced on the basis of the results of the first round that was held in Hosur in November'', Vohra said.
