Amazing pics and report! It must have been a hell of an event. And I particularly love the shot anachronix mentioned. Top class!

I had an all area access pass, so where ever LH was, I was there.

Only regret is that I couldn't manage to take a snap with him.

Smile A day at the MMST track, watching Lewis Hamilton

Had a great day at the tracks, watching Lewis Hamilton! Here are a few pics: They had two Merc AMG's - the silver one was a back-up car and the black one was the main one used. Actually the black one started giving some over-heating problem and so both were used in alternation. These pics were taken while I was standing at the end of the pit lane, some inside the pits.
Lewis came in from the airport in a chopper & landed at the track helipad. He was doing two laps each, on the short loop, with each winner - totally there were about 8-10 I think, from all over, even a guy from Gauhati. The grandstands were absoliutely full, the entire track was decorated almost entirely with Vodafone posters......Lewis himself was handled on track by two persons from McLaren..
There's a video of Lewis doing the 'donuts" in front of the grandstand. I hope I can upload it..(no it doesnt work). He did this several times, with each car. The last two pics just show the start & finish of one such donut..

Default Lets go for a drive,Lewis

I was present(got in late,so missed the chopper ride and stuff) at the event which was well organised-with only one grouse.The music was too loud and jarring-sometimes to drown out the sound of the car!
Was in the sms stand and had quite a good view of the downhill section and the straight.
My day was made when Lewis (SL63) slowed down right in front of the section where I stood and made donuts-the smell of burnt rubber was exhilirating.Am uploading that video.
The tyres couldn't take the torture at the end when 3 passengers(2 girls and 1 guy from Vodafone) hopped in and Lewis started the donut session-second spin and the rear left tyre went bust,shreddding into bits..Later when the stands had emptied some guys were asking the guard to throw them the tyre bits-he did and I managed to pickup one...
My takeaway from a day filled with an F1 star,Mercs,burnt rubber and a bit of the rubber!
Kindly excuse the picture quality.
The pics have got jumbled somehow,so not in order like I wanted them.

I am no fan of Lewis but it is great to see him in his McLaren outfit coming to Chennai, especially India to take part in these PR stuffs.

It is nice to see India being recognised by a global brand and thanks to Vodafone for bringing him here.

Wonder if Ferrari will come here with Alonso, or even FI with Sutil but with their F1 race car.

One thing is for sure, I am going to the Indian GP if at all it happens.

Do anyone have any idea how much the tickets will cost for the weekend (or incl. Friday).

I have no idea about it and will have to plan for it starting right now.

Ajith would have be the right local film celebrity for this event. No one associates Vikram with Motorsport. Anyways, really great event.
