From a company specialising in steam train lubricants to a global operation, Castrol develops customised lubrication solutions for the automobile industry. Castrol’s recipe for success is not only based on 100 years of lubricant experience, which is reflected in the quality of its premium products, but also on long-standing partnerships with leading automobile manufacturers. Supported by Castrol EDGE, the Volkswagen Motorsport team achieved an outstanding treble victory and diesel hat-trick with the Race Touareg in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
