Dirt Track 2016 was organised by the Cochin Racing Club (CRC) recently. The event which aimed at putting Kerala on the motor sport map received a very good response from the city.
It had two events, the Autocross, a timed competition that required drivers to navigate through a 2 km long defined course and Motorcross, an off the road motor cycle race done on road circuits that are enclosed and prepared specially for the race. The hi-light of the event was that for the first time in India, there were separate categories for children, under 17 and under 10 years of age. The competition concluded with a grand finale and announcement of the winners.
