Smile Re: Lewis Hamilton to drive the McLaren Mercedes MP4-27 on Marine Drive on 16 Sept 20

This reminds me of the event similar which happened in Mumbai in 2009 when David Coulthard was supposed to drive on the Worli Bandfra Sealink which was caught in a controversy with David getting a speed ticket.

So will Lewis Hamilton be driving within speed limits then on the Marine Drive or this time even he is prepared for the speed ticket along with the authorities/organizers?

Venue shifted to BKC due to residents protests.

Anyone planning to go from Navi Mumbai side? Could car pool and would give a nice opportunity for a good company. What say?

Saw stacks of red plastic barricades and at least 4-5 large tent like structures along the length of the road being put up at 2 am yesterday with a lot of Vodafone branding. It's on the Asian Heart side all the way up to before the BPCL pump. Should be fun to smell the rubber as a small precursor to the Airtel Indian Grand Prix.

The tickets for the F1 race are out on Book My Show. Any BHPians planning to go?

I got an sms from vodafone saying you're cordially invited for the speed show. Sms "SPEED" to 56565 to get your free pass.

I sent the sms and got this reply
"You are invited to watch Lewis Hamilton drive his VMM Formula One car on BKC, Mumbai on 16 Sep, 5:30pm onwards. Show this SMS for entry."

Its an eyewash. At best just to create awareness in people and make it success for their campaign. Actually its just FCFS (First Come First Serve). So plan to be there earliest to get inside.

I'll be reaching near Asian heart institute by 4:00-4:30 pm.
Parking won't be an issue I guess?

I'm coining from WEH from kandivli. Anyone coming from the suburbs? Maybe we could meet at a common point and then go there together.

Anyone going from South Mumbai? We can carpool. Public transport connectivity to BKC isn't that great on weekends, I have even seen taxi drivers refusing to go there.

Hi, I am not sure yet but I might be coming too from kandivali. We could team up in that case. Will pm in case I am. Only deterrent to coming is the mad rush that's gonna be there.

I'm targeting getting there by 4:30 PM. Will be close to the Asian Heart Institute. However with Vodafone making entry on a FCFS basis, I'm convinced there's going to be a mad dash to the place. It will be swamped!

Parking will be another headache! They won't allow anyone to park close to the venue.

I think all of us could meet up near asian heart institute by 4:15pm.

We can then park our cars somewhere together and then head for the entry gates.
