With two rounds and four races completed in the season, the Volkswagen Polo Cup 2013 heads to Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida for the remaining season. With three races scheduled over the weekend, Round 3 will see top drivers battle crucial points in the championship.

While they drove around the F1 circuit during the pre-season test in May 2013, the drivers are now more accustomed to the cars now and will be able to improve their pace this time around.

Along with the Polo Cup action, a support race of Volkswagen Polo R Cup TDI race cars (2010 and 2011) and Volkswagen Vento race cars will also 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.
