Castrol and Triumph: this partnership can look back on a long and successful tradition. Driven by a pioneering spirit shared by the two companies, they have been producing high-performance motorcycles on the one hand and advanced lubricants on the other since the start of the 20th century. Together, these two technology partners have proven to be unbeatable on numerous occasions.
Triumph held the world land speed record from 1956 to 1970, with a brief interruption of 33 days (when NSU held the record, courtesy of Wilhelm Herz). During this time, Triumph set a new record on four occasions: in 1956 with Devil's Arrow ridden by Johnny Allen, again in 1956 with Johnny Allen in the saddle of Texas Ceegar, in 1962 with Dudek/Johnson ridden by William Johnson, and in 1966 with Robert Leppan on board Gyronaut X1.
