ormula One, MotoGP, Formula E, World Rally Championship, NASCAR, Aussie V8 - Castrol’s motorsport partners in these top-tier motorsport categories have one goal; to win! To achieve this, they need lubricant, fuel, and other fluids designed to maximise performance output of their hardware in a reliable way. Castrol have been supporting competitors in motorsport and land speed records since 1907, have been heavily involved in Formula One since 1979, and have strong partnerships in motorsport categories that are now working towards more sustainable motorsport racing.
Dr Chris Turner is responsible for Castrol’s Global OEM Motorsport Product Development Team. His diverse team of engineering and chemistry specialists develop bespoke fuel, lubricants, EV fluids, and many other products for motorsport teams across the world; Alpine F1, Jaguar Formula E and Aprilia Racing MotoGP to name a few. Chris paints a picture of why fuels and lubricants are critical for a motorsport team in terms of speed and durability; how both components are an integral element of the success of any motorsport race team, and he will compare some of the different challenges that Castrol experiences across the different elite motorsport categories. Having spent 4 years of his career as an embedded fluid engineer with Renault F1 Team, Chris will also outline how on-site fluid technical support can help motorsport teams consistently perform at their best.
