Default Polo R & JK Tyre Racing @ Buddh. 29th Sept 2013

On a lazy Saturday afternoon, I get a call from sis asking, if, I would be interested to watch POLO R racing on Sunday (29 Sep) at Buddh International.
Wooohoo!! Hell yeah, why not !!

Picked up two passes and for company I had our tbhpian Stig from Kerala here for some work ( Nikki_bike).

Started around 10am from home, the drive was a blast through Greater Noida & Yamuna expressway but there was crazy jam at the F1 track exit point on Yamuna expressway for toll collection.

Finally, we reached the track around 11AM. The race was yet to start, Polos were in position, warming up.

In lap 4, Car No 20 toppled on turn 17 while taking a sharp left.
Smoke started coming out, track Marshalls did a great job to put the fumes down and roll the car back onto 4 wheels.

Wow. This looks great. I am sure you must have had a great time. Waiting for more pics !

However, I am not able to fathom how the Polo flipped under a sharp curve. It must have gone too close to the kerb i guess.

Those are some tastefully done colors for the Polo. Where can I find more details about the event?
