Trivia

Title

The title refers to the achievement of American rider John Kocinski in winning the 1997 World Superbike Championship on a Castrol Honda. His countryman Colin Edwards also won the title for the team in 2000 and 2002. On top of this success, in 1996, 1998 (both Aaron Slight) and 2001 (Edwards) the team had a rider finish 2nd overall in the series. The team disbanded after 2002 as Honda concentrated fully on the MotoGP series, however the Dutch privateer Ten Kate team returned the brand to World Superbikes and later gained Honda Europe's backing and sponsorship from Castrol.
