India’s first international drag race will be held at Aamby Valley City on March 9-10. The Valley Run 2013 will have racers from across the country and the world over showcasing their cars and bikes on the Aamby Valley City Airstrip, and competing with each other to set the best quarter-mile time.

Ten-time World Drag Race champion, Rickey Gadson will also attend the event. Gadson will race down the airstrip on a Kawasaki ZZR1400 Monster Energy and will also ride the MTT turbine Y2K superbike down the stretch.

"I’m definitely looking forward to making my maiden voyage over to Mumbai, India, for The Valley Run 2013. India has a huge and thriving drag racing fan base. So, I'm honoured to be the first US Champion Drag Racer to come over and be a part of this event,” said Gadson.

The event is in collaboration with Elite Octane Inc and is also supported by the FMSCI, Performance Racing Store and Seventh Gear Customs.
