T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship concluded at Buddh International Circuit last weekend. Castrol India sponsored Team Vecton raced two Prima trucks with two former British Truck Racing Association Champions, Stuart Oliver and Oly Janes behind the wheels.
Ravi Kirpalani, Managing Director, Castrol India says Castrol is proud to be the undefeated champions of T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship. Alongside Tata Motors, Castrol India looks to hope to popularise truck racing in India. In its maiden year, and the following, T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship has seen twelve foreign drivers at the helm. This looks to change through a programme that will help shortlist Indian drivers to participate in the yearly experiential truck racing extravaganza.
He adds, Castrol has supported the truck racing series by co-engineering an engine oil with Tata for the participating race trucks. Vecton RX offers improved fuel efficiency of Tata trucks by 3 pct, thereby saving on diesel and operating costs.
Stuart Oliver, T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship 2015 winner says it is an amazing feeling to be the defending champion. He thanks Team Castrol Vecton for their continuous support and belief in him, and took the opportunity to thank all fans for coming out in great numbers to support and cheer all the drivers. He looks forward for the next season.
