Mumbai:

Fresh from his back-to-back title victories at Silverstone and Hockenheim, Germany earlier this month, British race sensation and 2008 Grand Prix leader Lewis Hamilton is to visit Mumbai for a promotional tour on July 24.

The 23-year-old Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team's red hot property, who has scorched the tracks in only his second year in Formula One, would be seen driving a go kart for a lap at the Hakone track in Powai, according to sources connected with organising his visit to India.

"Hamilton will be giving Formula One enthusiasts a rare opportunity to meet him and race against the fastest time set by him. He will also be interacting with Vodafone customers and media persons," they said.

Hamilton (58 points), who finished second overall behind Finnish ace Kimi Raikkonen in his debut Formula One season last year, is currently ahead of second-placed Brazilian Felipe Massa (Ferrari) by four points.
