Castrol EDGE Sport Speed Challenge

Castrol is having an online contest for bloggers and its readers to promote its latest product, the Castrol EDGE Sport 0W-40, a fully synthetic race-proven engine oil. Before I go on with the details of the contest, perhaps it would be useful to talk about the product itself.
A synthetic engine oil is a type of engine oil. The oil used in your car has two primary ingredients: base oil and additives. The base oil allows the motor oil to perform its vital function – lubricating the engine’s moving parts to protect them against wear and tear caused by friction. The additives provide additional engine protection by helping to prevent the oil from deteriorating under the engine’s extreme temperature conditions.
Synthetic oils are manufactured specifically to stand up to the severe conditions under which conventional oils might falter.
Castrol EDGE range is Castrol’s best performance fully synthetic oil. It has been specifically engineered to meet and go beyond the toughest industry performance standards and specification across all the seven critical engine factors

It provides protection at maximum horsepower for a longer period, stabilises the temperature, protects moving parts against wear and tear, reduces burn-off and allows optimum engine performance between oil changes, performs exceedingly well in extreme hot and cold weather conditions, reduces emission of pollutants, and maintains high efficiency fuel economy.
It would be useful to check out the videos showing how Castrol EDGE oil was tested. It was put under extreme maximum power test, extreme heat test and also extreme cold test.

The contest is fairly simple. All you need to do is watch weekly videos which shows four teams changing engine oil. The four teams are the The Geeks, The Pros, Sweet Young Thing and Hot Chics (one of them is Cindy from hotpinkchilli). Then you need to guess how much time it took for each team to complete the task. The overall closest guess for ALL 4 videos wins!

The first video has been published. Check out the Hot Chics video!

There will also be weekly prizes. Every week, the closest guess to the actual time wins one of our four weekly prizes, and will also be in the running for the Grand Prize.
Bloggers are also given the opportunity to participate in this challenge by the name Blog and Win. First, the Blogger must register his or her blog URL at the Castrol EDGE website. Thereafter, create a blog post entitled “Castrol EDGE Sport Speed Challenge” and talk about the contest. Bloggers are also required to embed the videos namely the videos of The Geeks, The Pros, Sweet Young Things and Hot Chics, on their blogs. The Embed code can be found at each video page.

One thought on “Castrol EDGE Sport Speed Challenge”

  1. I am working with Castrol and just wanted everyone to know that unlike regular synthetic oils like Mobil 1 and Castrol SYNTEC, Castrol EDGE offers extended drain interval protection, provides unsurpassed wear protection*, and meets the world’s toughest industry-agreed standards. Because of this combination of benefits we put it in a higher class of oil called “advanced” synthetics.
