This was my second pan India roadtrip on a superbike. The initial idea was concieved by me but it was further nurtured and developed by Castrol India to make it more far reaching and commercially viable. The roadtrip was used to connect a series of events across India in 10 major cities. These events would be a mixture of entertaintment and motorbike skill testing. Each city event would produce a city finalist who would compete in the mega final after the whole roadtrip was over. The prize was a brand new Yamaha R1 superbike, the costliest prize in Indian motorcycling history.

My role in the trip as a Photographer

I was the lead photographer in the roadtrip. Camera Used: Canon 450D. Lenses Used: Canon 10-22mm, Canon 100mm USM Macro, Canon 70-200mm
