Top 10 pictures from CarWale Track Day 2018

Top 10 pictures from CarWale Track Day 2018

Once again, this year, we present the very best of the pictures clicked at the CarWale TrackDay 2018 by our chief photographer, Kapil Angane. This isn’t some point-and- shoot exercise, carried out at an everyday car event. It takes much patience, skill and determination to capture these fast moving cars under the most challenging conditions at the MMRT. Allow us to present the top 10 pictures shot by our lensman that are evocative of speed and thrill at the race track.

Mercedes-AMG GT-R

The star at the track was undoubtedly the Mercedes-AMG GT-R with its striking AMG Green Hell Magno colour. While the V8 pounded out a lovely soundtrack and the Michelins stuck to the tarmac, Vikrant still enjoyed the rear step out which created this beautiful picture.

Audi R8

Ten cylinders, four rings and 1:54:42 seconds to top our laptime leader board. Take a look at the fastest car in our line-up, in its winning stride at the track. Its pointier nose, low slung stance and sharper lines of the muscular coupe are well highlighted here.

Polo vs Baleno

Aficionados of the Polo TSI might never cotton to the Baleno RS, despite its slightly aggressive exterior. All the same, the Maruti always remained a step ahead of the VW in terms of all speeds at the track – something that is worth noting.

Audi RS7

A short ride with our race car driver, Rayomand Banajee, and the smile on Ameya's face confirmed what we already suspected. The Audi RS7 is fun to drive even if might be one of the longest cars to haul around the tight circuit at MMRT.

VW Ameo Cup Car

What's a sub-four- metre compact sedan with a huge wing doing at the race track? This picture should generate more interest for the uninformed. As for those keeping a tab on it - this is one of the few instances when the left wheel of an otherwise incredibly planted rear actually caught defied gravity.

SUVs

Looking beyond segment rivalry and putting compact diesel SUVs to test on the track was a smart decision. This is a good picture, representative of a podium finish with the Brezza out in front, grabbing top honours. The Nexon and EcoSport trailed behind, in that order, respectively.

Mini Vs Octavia

The Mini Cooper's steering seemed like an extension of the driver’s hands. There was no lag when it came to executing commands or directions. This only added to the joy of driving it. Meanwhile, the long sedan, although recording better lap times, clearly strived to maintain traction.

Skoda Octavia RS

Top 10 pictures from CarWale Track Day 2018

The Skoda Octavia might have looked shaky in the previous picture as it rolled in most corners battling understeer. Here again, our photographer has captured the saloon trying to shave off speed before entering a corner and leaving a trail of smoke behind it.

VW Ameo Cup car interior

We journos generally examine the interior’s fit and finish, poke and prod infotainment systems, and much more along those lines. Here, with only the bare essentials outfitted in the Ameo Race Cup car, we had nothing to do but clamber straightway into the single seat and hold on to the steering wheel for dear life.

Audi S5 vs S60

Top 10 pictures from CarWale Track Day 2018

The Audi S5 looks calm and stable, powering out of this corner, but the Volvo S60 Polestar didn't exactly struggle either although the picture depicts it thus. In fact, it managed to get out on top in the lap times even as angry clouds threatened to break out over the horizon.
