Default Pics & Videos : Renault F1 Road Show in Delhi

I have been watching on TV (DD Sports) and definitely good looking stunts were done by these guys right from Logan to F-1 cars with their spins,donuts and formations in sync. Any folks from Delhi happen to capture the show, do post the pics.

Saw the thing on TV. Pretty good stuff.

But i found that 6 Logan act a bit boring.

How fast did Nelson go atcually? They were saying it was 300 plus....

Any vids of the car zipping by?

Default F1 Road Show Meet

Today was the day when Renault had organised a Road Show in Delhi, a one of a kind event and something not to be missed atleast by BHPians who have Cars all up in them

So me,aZa,faithless_1984,harsh87,carholic1,kennzi all met up and went to the show. and whosoever Delhi Bhpian missed it missed one hell of a show.

The show was out of this world, the F1 Car been driven past you at full throttle, the Toon cars doing some Amazing stunts not to mention when one of the driver came out of the car, when the car was doing a donut, greeting the crowd with a namaste. It was truly out of this world. We guys had a wonderful time. Here are some pics of the event, more pics and videos to follow. I would request any other BHPian present at the event to post his/her experience and pics in this thread.

Thanks

Suman was there and so were Khaadu, KP_Zen and JKdas. I missed out due to some personal family matters. It seems Suman put his new Rebel XSi otherwise known as the 450D to good use and snapped some 200-300 odd pics.

Waiting for them to drool over.

If it wasn't 300, it wasn't much slower I can guarantee. My marshal position was closer to the point where the F1 cars hit top speed, and I didn't really care what the top speed was. It was pure bliss, seeing the cars fly past you.

Phew! My ears are still ringing. And thats only because I took off my earplugs for Nelson's run. Man, it can not be described in words.

As Tanveer said, we were marshaling (and disciplined on the job), so no pics. Some of us did act naughty and might have videos or pics. I do have an audio recording of Nelson's run (just put the phone on voice recording and left it on the side). 10 minutes and 46 seconds of Nirvana!

And before I forget, we did get a photo-op and autograph session with the drivers (including both Piquet and De Grassi).

@Mods: Can we get the posts and pics from the other thread started by Sudev (Volunteer for F1 Demo) shifted to this thread? This way, we will have everything in one place.

Back to the topic, what a show this was! I was there trackside as a marshal (thanks to Sudev) and nothing beats the experience.

Watched live on DD. It was pretty good. That road is a good place to have a drag today with the amount of rubber laid down on it. :-).
