According to Sundeep Gujjar from Xbhp – one of the riders on the trip –

Castrol has always promoted the cause of bikers in India and we see it as a trusted friend. Although the journey is expected to be tough and arduous, with Castrol Power1 in our bikes, we are confident we will have a smooth journey throughout.

During the journey, the bikers will also be promoting biking through various interesting activities like Castrol Power1 ‘Fix & Flick’ biker meets, the ‘Helmet of Change’ and help create a ‘Castrol Power1 Biker Code of India’. The ‘Castrol Power1 Fix and Flick’ sessions, will include do-it-yourself demonstration sessions with and for the bikers.

‘Helmet of Change’ is a Castrol Power1 initiative to promote safe riding amongst bikers. As the Grand India Road Trip travels across the country, the superbikers will encourage all bikers they connect with, to take a pledge endorsing safety and committing to safe riding. The next stop in the journey is Jaipur which the riders will reach on Monday 12th March 2012. You can catch the action on Facebook Page of Castrol here.
