Castrol for Kawasaki
Kawasaki and Castrol have teamed up in Australia.
The Kawasaki Racing Team has announced that its newest major sponsor, Castrol Lubricants will be the official supplier of oil, fluid and lubricants for both the KRT Road Race and Motocross teams in 2009. The Sponsorship arrangement between Castrol and KRT signifies Castrol’s return to top level motorcycle racing in Australia.
McLeod Accessories’ National Marketing Manager, Peter Coffey, says "McLeod Accessories and Castrol are very excited to partner up with Kawasaki Racing to contest the National Motocross, Supercross and Road Race Championships in 2009! Most motorcycle enthusiasts can remember when Castrol sponsored teams completely dominated racing events in Australia… and via KRT, 2009 sees the return of this iconic motorcycle lubricant brand.”
Kawasaki National Sales & Marketing Manager, Rob Walker, says “Kawasaki is very happy to have such a professional and respected brand as Castrol on board as a major sponsor of KRT in 2009. KRT’s commitment to aligning themselves with only the highest quality products makes Castrol a natural addition to Kawasaki in 2009. Castrol’s high quality oil and lubricants will work hand in hand with our very impressive new 2009 model Kawasaki race bikes to deliver Championship wins in ‘09.”
The KRT road race team look forward to unleashing the all new 2009 Ninja ZX-6R at its first national race meet of 2009. The team heads to Phillip Island for the 1st round of the 2009 Australian Superbike and Supersport Championships that are being run in conjunction with the 1st round of the World Superbike Championships from Friday 27 February – Sunday 1 March.
The KRT MX team will roll out the all new fuel injected ’09 KX450F and multiple shootout winning ’09 KX250F at its first national race meet at Wodonga, Victoria on 5 April for the 1st round of the 2009 Australian Motocross Championships. As a result of Castrol’s support, both Kawasaki Racing Teams are confident of providing the brand with immediate podium exposure.
