Well the two wheeler has delhi plates and I am sure there will be plenty of cops! no point coughing up the price of an uber ride as a challan/ offering .
Maybe Uber or the trusted Nano? Anyone want to hitch a ride from Gachibowli for the 9 am start ? I am game for the mini meet

They've finally put the exact location in their FB page:

Hyderabad to host Red Bull F1 Showrun with David Coulthard - April 05, 2015-location.png

Any idea if there are any possible parking options near to this? Also, how far is this place from James Street station?

Unfortunately, the insurance of my 2-wheeler expires on saturday and I'll get the renewed policy document only sometime next week!

Thanks. Had you not posted here, I would have missed the location for sure!

And this is in the middle of nothing! James Street will be atleast 2+ kms away from the area. Parking in Lumbini park might be an option, but even that will be quite a walk. Parking in lower tank bund is the next option, but I don't see any General Entry from lower tank bund. It only shows Restricted Entry.

I think the best way to reach there is to take a MMTS to James Street and then get fleeced by an auto.

Yikes, that place is right in the middle of Upper Tank Bund Rd. It is around 2 kms from Lumbini Park and equi distant from James Street. And in the summer heat, it is not walkable either way.

It will be very hot, so wearing a cap or having an umbrella might be a good idea. It is not to far from my place, which is close to Necklace Rd Station, but the heat is playing spoilsport to my plans to witness the show.

Finally saw an F1 car in real life and experienced the V8 music. Unfortunately, I stood at a point that eventually turned out to be between two donut spots. So I couldn't capture a clear video, though I could say I ended up capturing videos at both the spots, from a distance. Happy that I could see both the donuts though. The bike stunt was equally amazing.

Here is a snap from my phone camera. I guess better pictures should surface soon since there were many DSLRs out there.

Red bull Show Run !!!

One awesome day it was!! here are some pics which I took with my DSLR.

It would have been nice if all team bhpians could have met each others.

But sadly I could not take many pics of the f1 car as it was in a lighting fast speed and there were lot of crowd behind me who were pushing me very badly as well as putting hands above me which made me uncomfortable for me to click the pics but here are some pics which I have clicked.

Did anyone take good clicks of the f1 car ??? Can u please share them here??

I was there, and got a video of every single run of that amazing F1 car. I was in the middle of the designated road space, so got his fly-bys, and one donut as well. My internet is down at the moment unfortunately though, so will post a couple of videos once it's back up.

As promised, here you guys go. Sorry if the videos are a little shaky at times, I was doing my best to keep my arm steady in a crowd of people going wild.

First, a picture of the view I had from where I was standing:

Some videos taken by me of David Coulthard's runs. Please ignore the background music. Watch the videos in HD, and turn up that freakin volume

1st Run:



Fastest Run:



Donut:



The man who enthralled us that morning!

I was told that he touched 282 Kmph in the fastest run . This man is just amazing!

OT: I wish that they turned off the music, or at least lowered the volume while he was doing his runs, so that we could just enjoy the eargasmic sound of the car.

Cheers
