India’s growing taste for speed saw Kolkata join the club. The first edition of the India Speed Week was held in the City of Joy at Behala Flying Club. The crowds appeared in excess of 7000 and there were a variety of cars and bikes. The list was vast and comprised events like drag racing, auto-car expo, test drives, adventure sports, glamour and entertainment programmes amongst others.

The India Speed Week2016 collaborated with Elite Octane Inc and was approved by The Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India. Apart from the cars, there were also bikes from various sizes, capacities and categories all singing the songs of pistons, exhausts and wheelies.   

It also took the glamour quotient several notches higher and set the bolly-speedometer roaring by roping in the self-acclaimed bike fanatic and speed lover John Abraham who flagged off the racers on the inaugural day.

Commenting on the occasion, Amit Kumar Modi, chairman, ISW said, ‘’It has always been my dream to do a drag racing event with cars and bikes, what better than to flag it off in my own city, Kolkata. The moment the idea germinated within me, I started executing it.  Together we envision to make this a franchise for the future years to come. Without holding anything back, we have kept the scale of the event big and will continue to strive to make it bigger with every year.'
