You're right! Hamilton does know how to play to the gallery and play he did.

The C63s were driven by professional test drivers from the VMM F1 racing team. Naah again no lucky passengers, just the technical support and development team/race engineers riding with the drivers.
Well at the beginning of the event, the white C63 was driven by those professional test drivers from VMM for 3-4 laps but later-on both of them were driven by Lewis himself. The burnout on the white one (picture I uploaded) was done by him, could be roughly seen when he gets down. But I saw and confirm it was definitely him. As for those lucky passengers in the red one, Yes they were indeed "lucky". Winners from some Vodafone contest that took place some weeks ago. It was announced that they were 6 in number and 3 at once were taken for a single lap across the road.
Funnily when Manish (the anchor) asked one guy of those six winners about the experience, he said Lewis 'broke' the engine and he couldn't take it above 100 K MPH! and he claimed this was told to him by Lewis himself! But the speed at which he passed us on both laps, it was easily felt he was way above 100!

They weren't test drivers. Just the VMM crew which was inspecting the track. They also used an E350 for that.
