Vodafone's Race to Dubai Contest - TN excluded

Vodafone launched an F1 oriented contest this F1 season, wherein Vodafone subscribers compete for a ticket to each weekend's Grand Prix with the grand prize winner winning a trip to Dubai's F1 GP.

All one has to do is pickup a Vodafone number and send an SMS with the word RACE to a certain number. I'd tried it twice because the number was toll-free only to get a reply saying something like "Sorry the contest is not open for your circle".

Found this bit of crap on the Vodafone India site later though:
"All valid Vodafone Subscribers* (except the Subscribers from Vodafone Essar’s Chennai and Tamil Nadu Telecom Service Area) shall be entitled to participate in the Competition."

What are we people in Tamil Nadu to you then Vodafone? Invalid customers? Crackheads who don't watch any F1 Races?
