Castrol Unveil Titanium Strong Blackout Trials


Castrol, one of the world’s leading lubricant brands has unveiled a unique set of Titanium Trials which will be taking place over the course of the next year, kicking off with Titanium Strong Blackout which coincides with the launch of their new Castrol EDGE boosted with TITANIUM Fluid Strength Technology™.

The first of the trials were announced at the Titanium launch at CERN in Geneva with the aid of BMW factory driver Augusto Farfus and Lamborghini ace Adrian Zaugg.

The Titanium Strong Blackout trial will feature a pitch-black track based at a disused airfield outside of Berlin, marked only by beams of light. The course is designed in four sections to accommodate a four-car relay, providing each of the four drivers and their machines the perfect opportunity to push to the limits with the only lights being those on the track limits.

On taking part in the Trial, Augusto Farfus said: “I jumped at the chance to be involved when I heard about this epic challenge. I’m looking forward to getting behind the wheel, putting my skills to the test on this unique course, and working with the others to prove we are Titanium Strong.”

Joining Farfus and Zaugg is a driver who knows all too well what it is like to drive in the dark – 2013 DTM champion and 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Mike Rockenfeller.

A fourth driver has yet to be announced, with the only detail Castrol revealed as being known around the world for audacious driving skill.
