A brief history of Castrol in motorcycle racing

Right from the very first Isle of Man TT in 1907, Castrol has been at the leading edge of competitive motorcycle racing. In fact, over the years, many of the most famous races’ winners used Castrol oil.

Through the glory years of Norton and Gilera in the 1950s, to the beginning of our extraordinary relationship with Honda, Castrol has pioneered new technologies. As the engines became ever more sophisticated through the Japanese motorcycle revolution that ultimately led to the boom in four-stroke technology, Castrol was right there developing oils and lubricants that could master this new science. 


As the premier MotoGP™ and World Superbike classes of the sport have evolved, and the engine capacities expanded from 350 to 1000, Castrol has remained a key player, supporting the legendary riders and teams that glorified each era. 


Only this long and glorious legacy on the track could have given us the insight to create Castrol’s POWER1 lubricants, developed especially for motorcycles. Castrol POWER1 proudly holds the title of the world's no.1 selling lubricant for two-wheeled vehicles. This accolade is a result of our unwavering dedication to providing top-tier lubrication solutions trusted by MotoGP Teams like Castrol Honda LCR.
