The third edition of Pete’s Super Sunday saw as many as 25 supercar owners line up at the start line for a 100km drive through the scenic roads of Kochi. Our friendly host Biju Paul told us many of these supercar owners are regulars at the event. The event, then, had to be befitting to welcome the first-timers and to honour the regulars. It certainly was, as at the pre-event party veteran pop singer Usha Uthup welcomed everyone singing hit numbers one after another. But, everyone called it a night early; it was going to be a long Sunday – the call time at 6am. At the break of dawn, the crowds gathered along the roads were left bedazzled by the symphony of exhaust sounds played by the supercars.
Imagine coming across a sight like this on your morning jog.
After the drive, all these supercars were parked in a hall open to the public for viewing. The moment the show was declared open, people poured in, in huge numbers, which the organisers claim were more than 1,00,000. There were many attractions, and the show wasn’t just for supercars. The horsepower extravaganza was seen in its grandeur as many superbikes were part of the show too. A Go-Kart track was part of the event to let the aspiring racers in the crowd have a go at setting impressive lap times. That apart, Rage Motorsport’s Cyclone buggy and Mahindra Racing’s Gaurav Gill were present there to entertain the crowds. In short, this time around, the show was much bigger and the organisers signed off with a promise to come up with an even larger show next time.
