Castrol supporting Australian Formula Ford in 2020
The Formula Ford Association is proud to announce a new partnership with Castrol for the 2020 Australian Formula Ford Championship. Castrol continues to support grass-roots motorsport in Australia and will be the official supplier of engine and gearbox oil for the 2020 Australian Formula Ford Championship. Having reached a century of operation in Australia and New Zealand last year, Castrol is renowned for its high-quality products. These are the same products used in the AFFC and are also available for use in Australian motorist’s vehicles. The proven results from demands under racing conditions mean drivers can be confident in the Castrol oil they use in their road cars, whatever their driving conditions. Castrol supports a varied mix of motorsport across a range of disciplines from Karting to Supercars and Formula 1. Castrol is also the official oil partner of the Renault F1 Team, which fields Australian Daniel Ricciardo. “We are delighted to have Castrol’s support for the AFFC in 2020, their product is the highest standard and the Castrol brand has a long and proud history with motorsport both here and overseas and is now throwing its support behind one of the most important driver development categories in Australia. AFFC Category Manager Phil Marrinon expressed excitement at the new deal with Castrol. “The Castrol brand is world-famous for motorsport involvement and their support of Australian Formula Ford is a real bonus,” he said. This is great news for Australian motorsport at a difficult and uncertain time for our country. Round 1 of the 2020 Australian Formula Ford Championship was scheduled for this weekend at Winton Motor Raceway, but has been canceled due to the evolving COVID-19 situation. We are hopeful that the Championship will commence with Round 2 at Phillip Island on May 16-18.
