‘New formula Castrol with liquid tungsten conquers the outback run.’

Jack Grimsley composed the orchestral jingle for Castrol motor oil with liquid tungsten in 1962.

Castrol sponsored a range of motor events during the 1950s and '60s, such as the Castrol Safety Drive and Castrol-Canberra 500 Reliability Trial.

Car rallies or trials were tremendously popular during this period, particularly distance rallies. Car manufacturers and fuel companies used the events to test new products, to prove they could stand up to whatever conditions remote Australia could provide.
