Eight teams of three mechanics each from across the country fought it out for the title of Castrol Super Mechanic of India at the Castrol Super Mechanic All India finals held in Mumbai.
The final round included a quiz and a practical round to test the knowledge and skills of the mechanics who qualified for the finals after two rounds of tough competition with about 60,000 mechanics who participated from across the country.
The India edition of the Castrol Super Mechanic contest was part of an Asia-wide initiative launched by Castrol, one of the leading lubricants brands in the world, to encourage two-wheeler mechanics to showcase their knowledge and talent and to hone their skills.
According to Kedar Apte – Vice President Marketing, Castrol India, “The Castrol Super Mechanic contest is designed to test and improve maintenance skills of two-wheeler mechanics and also to provide them a platform to showcase their talent. We are delighted with the response received from across the country and would like to wish the best of luck to the winning team which will be representing India at the Castrol Asia Pacific finals.”
“As vehicle technology improves, maintenance skills have to improve and upgrade. The Castrol Super Mechanic contest also included various skill development and knowledge sharing sessions which will help the mechanics to have a better understanding of latest trends and technologies in the lubricant as well as the automotive industry and thus help them better serve their customers” – said Kedar Apte.
The winning team will attend a final training camp in Mumbai from 6th-8th November before they fly off to Thailand for the Castrol Asia Pacific finals.
