Team OD  | Updated: November 28, 2011, 07:09 PM IST

The Indian automotive industry has been abuzz with the recent slew of launches. Every manufacturer is vying for the customer's attention and tugging at their purse strings. In 2011, we've seen some made-for-India cars, imported ones, cars adapted to Indian conditions, cars starting at below Rs 3 lakh to ones costing upwards of Rs 5 crore. It's the time of year when we recognize the manufacturers' efforts and the13th CNBC-TV18 OVERDRIVE awards will do just that. The list of nominees is a long one and judging the automobiles is a distinguished panel of judges.

Starting with the senior editorial team comprising Sirish Chandran (Editor-OVERDRIVE), Bertrand Dsouza (Deputy Editor), Shubhabrata Marmar (Deputy Editor), Abhay Verma (Senior Correspondent) to FIA GP2 racer Armaan Ebrahim, President of FMSCI Vicky Chandok, Sarath Kumar - National Motorcycling Champion, 5-time INRC winner Hari Singh and Gaurav Gill - WRC driver.

OVERDRIVE is the first entity outside Formula 1 teams to be allowed access to the newly developed and world-acclaimed Buddh International Circuit to judge 2011's new cars and bikes. Points were awarded on the basis of their design, performance, engineering finesse, driver involvement, eco-friendliness, safety, efficiency and adaptability to the Indian market. Prior to being judged for the awards on the Buddh Circuit, these vehicles underwent extensive road tests as well.

The jury have already voted and the results will be declared on 8th December 2011. You, the reader, can cast your votes on what you think should be the Car of the Year and Bike of the Year. If your votes match those of the jury, you could win tickets for two to Goa. To know more and to cast your votes, logon to http://www.cnbcoverdriveawards.moneycontrol.com/contest_polls.php
