JK Tyre joined hands with Smile Foundation
JK Tyre joined hands with Smile Foundation, a national NGO that works for the social uplift and betterment of underprivileged children. In a joint initiative undertaken today, JK Tyre invited a group of 25 children from the Health Care Society, a school that is located in Dhaula Kuan and is managed by Smile Foundation, to Buddh International Circuit for a memorable racetrack experience. The 25 children got an opportunity to visit the circuit, got a glimpse of trackside facilities (including the Race Control room, team buildings, and team garages), visited the pitlane and got to do one lap of the 5.14km circuit, which is one of the fastest F1 tracks in the world. The children also got to meet and interact with racing drivers from JK Tyre’s Motorsports Program and VW Polo R Cup series, who spoke to the children at length and shared their experiences of racing and explained what it takes to build a career in motorsport.
