The JK Tyre Volkswagen Polo R Cup now heads to Buddh International Circuit (BIC) in Greater Noida for Round 3. After having raced at the technical circuit of Kari Motor Speedway in Coimbatore, the Polo R Cup 2013 drivers will now get the taste of racing at one of the fastest and most modern circuits in the world. Championship battle will now take the most crucial step forward as the top drivers will fight for each and every point that would decide their fate in this season.
While it will be the first time this season that the Polo R Cup drivers will compete in a race at BIC, it is not the first time that they will drive around the circuit. After having completed their Fitness Camp earlier this year, most of the Cup drivers had got the opportunity to drive around this circuit during the pre-season test in May 2013. However, most of the drivers were rookies then and were less familiar with their racing machines. Having completed two race weekends comprising of four races, the drivers are more accustomed to the race cars now and will be able to improve their pace this time around.
Along with the Polo R Cup action, a support race of Volkswagen Polo R Cup TDI race cars (2010 and 2011) and Volkswagen Vento race cars will be conducted over the weekend. This race will include 16 automotive media houses participating in a novel format of race to experience various elements of a racing weekend that the Cup drivers go through.
Round 3 and 4 of Polo R Cup 2013 will be held at BIC with three races in each round, making it a minimum of 10 races for the year.
