Acko Drive Awards Jurors Sample 60 Products At Buddh International F1 Circuit; Winners Announcement on March 29, 2023
The jury round saw some of the most exciting and innovative vehicles being put through their paces by a panel of experienced jurors
The Acko Drive Awards Jury Meet at the Buddh International F1 Circuit was an action-packed event that brought together the best cars and bikes of 2022. The jury round, which spanned two days - one for the cars and one for two-wheelers - saw some of the most exciting and innovative vehicles being put through their paces by a panel of experienced jurors. They had the tough job of evaluating 35 cars and over 25 two-wheelers across two days.
The jury consisting of automotive experts and enthusiasts like Dr. V Sumantran, Gul Panag, Hani Musthafa, Siddharth Vinayak Patankar, Ameya Naik and Rishad Cooper and world class racers like Aditya Patel, Rayomand Banajee, Aravind KP, Aishwarya Pissay, pushed the cars and bikes to their limits on the F1 track in Greater Noida. Of course, not all of these products find a place on the track. Scooters and commuter motorcycles were taken on the internal roads of the Buddh International Circuit campus to get a real world feel of how they are to ride.
The Buddh International Circuit, located just outside of Noida, provided the perfect backdrop for the event. The state-of-the-art facility, with its high-speed straights, challenging corners, and undulating terrain, tested the limits of every vehicle that took to the track. And the jury had its hands full, as they had to mark all these products according to set parameters. The process followed during this jury meet is of the highest standard as it is the same as the one followed by the World Car Awards.
New-generation cars and two-wheelers that were launched in 2022 qualified as nominees for this jury meet. The line-up included high-performance sports cars to rugged off-road vehicles, from sleek electric bikes to powerful petrol-driven superbikes.
The jurors were absolutely thrilled as they awarded points to the products based on the set parameters. The winners are announced by way of a secret ballot and providing assistance here were the official validation partner, Grant Thornton Bharat. The winners list comes in a sealed envelope and are only provided to us on the day of the Awards ceremony. This process ensures that only the best are rewarded which is why the Acko Drive Award is ‘The One That Matters’
The winners of the Acko Drive Awards will be announced in a ceremony on March 29, 2023.
