Since 1906, our business has developed around a passion for supporting pioneers and record breakers on land, water and in the air. Today we sponsor some of the world's most successful motorsport teams.
Motorsport has always been the beating heart upon which Castrol thrives, but we do not merely supply racing teams - we stand alongside our partners in a mutual quest for higher performance.
We work in synchronicity with teams and engineers so that Castrol products are considered as crucial as any other key component on any vehicle competing on track.
ABB FIA Formula E is all about the future of e-mobility. Our collective understanding of how we use energy in the next generation of road-going vehicles is being driven by the technological developments made in the world’s fastest all-electric series right now.
To be successful in Formula E means harvesting and deploying energy for high performance competition in the most efficient way through battery power and energy regeneration.
To do this requires sophisticated electric motors that run at significantly more revolutions than traditional combustion engines, and advanced high-friction gearboxes that operate at extremely hot temperatures. All of these need specially-developed EV fluids that can perform effectively in unique and extreme conditions, but are also compatible with components that conduct electricity.
Formula E therefore provides the perfect environment for Castrol to collaborate, learn and win on the track while continuing to develop its advanced technology and EV fluids for today’s electric vehicles as well as those that will define the future of the automotive world.
For Season 9, the Jaguar TCS Racing Formula E Team is using Castrol’s advanced EV fluids onboard the Jaguar, building on a long and successful motorsport partnership that includes glory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 24 Hours of Daytona.
