Thanks diesel for the pictures. Must have been great fun to watch him in action. Did they actually cover the entire track in a shamiana, because of the rain? How far away from his time were the guys who got to race the karts?

Hey guys, sorry for the delay, here are the pictures, Enjoy!!

Good experience! Considering it's not everyday that you get to to see Lewis Hamilton!! cheers:

The fact that Lewis didn't do a full lap due to the rains, not many got an autograph and not a single person got a photograph was a little disappointing.

But good fun nevertheless. Lewis after he completed his mini lap, joked, "This is the world's shortest lap - 9 seconds!!"

3 guys had a chance to beat Lewis' time - the thinnest guy won. I'm guessing because he was the lightest and the other two just didn't know how to accelerate! None of them beat Lewis' time.

Nice guy with a weird scribble for a signature. He came around to give autographs, but people just jumped on each other - mayhem.

There was a small media meet and then he took off. And like a good brand ambassador he did not forget to thank Vodafone and talk about the company, as always!

Nice pics, Ruth.
Hamilton is good when it comes to humour too. Mini lap! Wow.

Next time, set your camera date correctly.
