Car and motorcycle lubricant maker Castrol has announced it will be joining forces with the LCR Honda MotoGP team, along with the Rajni Academy for Competitive Racing (RACR) to organise a talent hunt that aims to find India’s next top motorcycle racer. The talent hunt will be called ‘India’s Ultimate Motostar’ and will be a reality show that “aims to spotlight India’s most promising racing talents.”

The motorcycle enthusiasts will be shortlisted via an audition process, which will see them putting their skills out on a racetrack. The participants will then receive professional training from RACR at the Coimbatore Training Academy, while the “ultimate” winners will get the incredible opportunity to be trained under the LCR Honda MotoGP team at their racing facility in Europe. Castrol and MTV will be holding the regional auditions in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, and Chennai with the participants undergoing multi-phase selections.
