FIRST PICS: Castrol to back Honda in WSBK

The distinctive brand returns to the series as a title backer after an absence of almost a decade...
As expected, Castrol has confirmed it will revive its relationship with Honda in the World Superbike Championship to act as Ten Kate Racing's title backer in 2011.

The iconic brand has enjoyed significant success with Honda over the years, partnering the manufacturer on its way to World Superbike titles in 1997, 2000 and 2002.

Returning to replace HANNspree as Ten Kate Racing's title sponsor in World Superbike, the Castrol Honda team pulled off the wraps to reveal a white, red and green livery in a nod to the brand's corporate colours.
