In the skies, we’ve been making the impossible possible all the way back to the Wright Brothers, who in 1903 successfully invented and flew the first powered aircraft. In fact, the first plane ever to loop-the-loop had Castrol pumping through its engine.
On the track, motorsport remains part of Castrol’s DNA with involvement spanning from its long-standing support of grassroots racing through Karting Australia, all the way through to two decades of partnership with Tickford Racing in Supercars. In addition to being involved with every land speed record in history, Castrol works closely with Alpine F1 Team to unlock the edge of performance and now provides advanced e-fluids for Formula E racing, helping these futuristic cars to race around the world.
