Narain's F1 demo drive plan cancelled

Thiruvananthapuram,Aug 25, 2012 (PTI)

The Kerala tourism department has dropped the proposed 'F1' demo drive by Narain Karthikeyan in the city on August 28, keeping in mind the 'Onam' (harvest festival) celebrations.

The demo drive was caught in a legal tangle after a social activist filed a PIL in a local court seeking cancellation of the demo, saying 40 km per hour was the maximum permissible speed limit on the road from Kowdiar Palace to Fine Arts College, where the drive was to be organised.

A Tourism department release, however, said "we had to cancel the demo drive on the eve of Onam as it would be a busy day for shoppers."

Tourism Minister A P Anil Kumar said the department would try to hold the F1 demo drive during the Grand Kerala Shopping Festival to be held from December 1 to February 15.
