Castrol has enjoyed a long and hugely successful relationship with Honda, dating back to the 1959 Isle of Man TT, when the Castrol-backed Honda team won the manufacturers' title on its first time out. Over the last 50 years, Castrol and Honda have scored over 500 victories together in MotoGP, World Superbikes and endurance bike racing. An astonishing record of success.
Today, Castrol is still in partnership with Honda in the pinnacle of two-wheel racing - MotoGP. Working with the race-bred high-performance MotoGP prototypes - which are purpose-designed and built to maximise every ounce of horsepower out of MotoGP's four-cylinder 1000cc engines - Castrol can test its Power 1 motorcycle oil to the limit with the most advanced two-wheel machines ever to hit the race track.
