Valley Run 2021: The Winners This Year

The eighth edition of the racing event recently took place in Lonavala, Mumbai

Since 2020 because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, most of the motorsport events were cancelled, not merely in India but all over the earth. However, the drought ended for the Mumbai city residents a few weeks ago when the eighth volume of the Valley Run returned to the Aamby Valley airstrip in Lonavala, Mumbai. The return of the drag racing event prompted a grin to the faces of the automobile enthusiasts, and over 500 of them with high-end cars and motorcycles reached the venue to take part in the quarter-mile racing event.

From custom made KTM Dukes to Lamborghinis, the event was swamped with different kinds of high-performance vehicles. Apart from racing, team Throttle 97 and the Supercar Club of India organized drifting shows in the adjacent paddock areas. Furthermore, team Throttle 97 also coordinated a car parade which saw 30 high-performance cars taking part and a number of them travelled all the way to Lonavala from Visakhapatnam.
