Sept.19 – McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton will treat Bangalore to speed thrills on September 27 when he zooms in a McLaren Mercedes on a fast track, his sponsor in India said on Sunday.
“Racing enthusiasts of the city will get a rare opportunity to watch Hamilton participate in motor racing Sep 27 on the Bangalore-Mysore infrastructure corridor road built by NICE (Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise),” McLaren sponsor and leading mobile service operator Vodafone Eassar said in a statement.
“To build up for the mega event, we have displayed a replica of the Mercedes racing car the ace driver used at a shopping mall in upscale Malleshwaram suburb,” the statement said.
The sponsor will hold contests this week for customers to win 30 select passes and watch the racing star live in action.
“In addition, 10 lucky customers will drive to the pit garage with the racer while three customers get to meet and greet Hamilton personally,” the statement added.
The event will also create awareness on the upcoming motor racing event being held for the first time in Delhi next month.
