Lewis Hamilton drove his McLaren F1 car through the streets of Bandra Kurla Complex in an exhibition run in Mumbai. The British driver enthralled a crowd of over 60,000 fans while performing hot laps and donuts to the delight of the audience during the Vodafone Speedfest event.
The viewing stands along the 1km stretch were filled to capacity with a few lucky customers of Vodafone India also getting an opportunity of riding alongside Lewis in a Mercedes AMG sports car. Lewis also interacted with the finalists of the on-going Vodafone ‘Drive into the Big League’ contest, which gives one winner of the grand finale a money-can’t-buy-chance to get their logo on the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes car that will race in the Indian GP next month.
After the event, a visibly thrilled Lewis Hamilton said, “It’s amazing how each time I come to India, the experience gets better. I feel privileged to have presented India’s first night street-race show on behalf of Vodafone McLaren Mercedes. The fans in Mumbai are simply the best and the unbridled love and adulation that I receive here in India is addictive and makes me want to come back for more action and adventure.”
