Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) would consider action against organisers of the exhibition event where former British F1 racer David Coulthard drove a Formula One car on the Bandra-Worli sealink allegedly beyond permissible speed limits.

"I have asked my officers to submit a report on the event. Action will be considered only after it is established that the vehicle went beyond permissible speed limits on the sealink," MSRDC Managing Director Satish Gavai told PTI.

On reports that the organiser 'Raging Bull' stands to forfeit Rs 14 lakh deposit for the event for violation of speed norms, Gavai said "we will come to that after we receive the report."

Asked if it was true that the organisers were asked to move the event date after the Assembly elections, to avoid it being seen as a showcase for the government, Gavai said "we had asked them to defer the event but they had received necessary permissions for that date already."
