Narain Karthikeyan inaugurates Castrol Autocar Performance Show 2005

MUMBAI: The Castrol Autocar Performance Show 2005, which is a display of high end, super performance cars kicked off a couple of days ago at the Nehru Centre in Worli, Mumbai. The four-day long show was inaugurated by India’s racing champion Narain Karthikeyan.

Spread over two floors the Castrol Autocar Performance Show 2005 features over 36 motor manufacturers, designers and accessory manufacturers.



Kartikeyan says, "This is the first time that a collection of high end, super performance cars has been put together in India. Besides being a treat for enthusiasts, the show offers a fascinating glimpse at some of the most advanced vehicles in the world and is set to become the benchmark for automotive shows in India”.

The star attraction of the show was the Castrol World Rally Championship Simulator where a driver navigates the Castrol World Rally Championship winning car on one of the rally courses, while sitting in Mumbai. This is the first time that a simulator of this sort has been brought into India.

High performance cars and bikes demand superior lubricants and Castrol is uniquely poised to meet the grueling performance needs of automobiles in motor sport and high end cars. We are delighted that car and bike lovers will get this unique opportunity to get a close, up-front look at some of the most powerful automotive machines in the world”.

Sharing the motivation behind the launch of the show, Autocar India editor Hormazd Sorabjee said, “This show is the ultimate destination for those who have a passion for cars and bikes. It is an excellent platform for the automotive industry to showcase exciting products and new concepts to a knowledgeable and influential group of enthusiasts.
