As the motorsport extravaganza gears up, spectators are being cautioned against bringing a slew of items to the race track. The list of prohibited items encompasses power banks, laptops, binoculars, professional cameras, and a host of other paraphernalia that might hamper the race experience.


Notable inclusions on the no-no list are backpacks, radios, chairs, stools, oversized handbags, umbrellas (leave them at home, rain or shine), balloons, coins, bottles, fireworks, lighters or matchboxes, glass containers, perfume, deodorants, drones, alcohol, cans, chewing tobacco, and chewing gum. 

The lineup for the MotoGP Bharat

Your furry friends, unfortunately, won't get a glimpse of the high-octane action either. Also, laser lights, pens/pencils, skateboards, roller blades, and drones are to be left behind. Unsurprisingly, obvious items like firearms, crackers, sharp-edged materials, syringes, and sprays are not welcome either.


On the flip side, here's what you can bring: caps/hats, earplugs (trust us, these are a must for the roar of the engines), sunscreen, a picnic mat, sunglasses, baby food, and a medical inhaler. While you might have your mouth watering for some trackside snacks, remember that food and water can't be brought in, so you'll have to rely on the culinary offerings at the circuit.


Some restrictions, like prohibiting laptops and high-end cameras, are par for the course at major sporting events. Yet, the ban on power banks raises eyebrows, and fans are left curious about alternatives.
