CASTROL PARTNERSHIP RENEWED

Jaguar Racing has renewed its long-term strategic partnership with Castrol

Jaguar Racing has confirmed a long-term partnership renewal with leading brand Castrol within the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
This announcement further extends a successful partnership which started in the 1980s in motorsport.
“We are delighted that Castrol will continue in partnership with Jaguar Racing,” Panasonic Jaguar Racing Director, James Barclay, said.
“Together we have a shared vision for sustainability, innovation, performance and technology.
“Bringing their leading expertise and performance enhancing products to Jaguar Racing is crucial for our powertrain efficiency development both within our race cars and in Jaguar Land Rover’s future vehicles.”
Castrol says it will continue to support the team with technical expertise on and off the track, helping drive Jaguar Racing to more points, podiums and wins with powertrain efficiency gains from lightweight, low friction greases and oils.
Jaguar Racing has benefited from using Castrol e-Transmission Fluid to date, which has reportedly delivered a significant step up in performance, both for cooling and reducing friction losses.
Together, the teams are currently developing a new powertrain fluid for coming seasons that will further improve performance through cooling and component design in the Jaguar I-TYPE.
As a key technical partner, Castrol says it understands Jaguar Racing’s ‘Race to Innovate’ philosophy, which aims to influence the next generation of electric vehicles.
“Extending our partnership with Jaguar Racing is testament to our shared goals,” Castrol Vice President Marketing, AS Ramchander, said.
“Pushing our Castrol e-Fluids to the limit in the tough Formula E race environment is the ideal way to develop the electric vehicle technology of the future.”
Castrol says its advanced e-Fluids, e-Transmission Fluids, e-Coolants and e-Greases will extend the life of powertrain systems in Jaguar Land Rover’s current and future road car products, like the multi award-winning all-electric Jaguar I-PACE.
