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.
When Björn Waldegård clinched the World Rally Drivers’ Championship in 1979, he did so with Castrol emblazoned on the side of his Ford Escort RS1800. Four decades on and Sebastien Ogier did the same in an M-Sport Ford Fiesta WRC in both 2017 and 2018.
As long as there have been world rally champions, Castrol has been at the cutting edge of the toughest motorsport on Earth, providing drivers and teams with technical support and ensuring they have the right oil to reach the finish line.
In 2023 Castrol EDGE will once again be there to underpin M-Sport and its three driving crews across four continents and 13 countries in the FIA World Rally Championship.
From the rugged mountains of Sardinia to the icy snow banks of Finland, the twisting rain-soaked hairpins of Japan and the heart-stopping asphalt of Portugal, nothing tests the fundamental elements of a car to extremes like the WRC.
And with so much of it taking place on the roads we drive on, there is no other global championship that provides a better laboratory for testing the strength of Castrol EDGE.
So no matter what you drive, or wherever you drive it, you can be certain that Castrol has already challenged your vehicle’s oil to the very limits of its environment.
