The list of 3300 applicants was reduced to 70 when each applicant was supposed to drive eight laps. The laps were designed by Red Rooster so that the best of the driving capabilities can be displayed. The drivers were rated between 0 and 10 and the evaluators had a tough time to do so.

After the first camp, the second camp was held in Bangalore where the 70 selected racers were competing among themselves to get selected for the last and the final round. Before that they were trained and judged by the top most evaluators with racing background. There were names like Ram Narayan, Anish Ratham, Karna Kandur and Leela Krishnan. In Camp 2, the racers were divided in the group of five and time was the guiding factor in this round.
