2000 was a memorable season for Castrol Honda and their bid for the Championship crown. The team introduced the VTR1000-SP1 and Colin Edwards and Aaron Slight were the men charged with keeping Honda’s latest superbike at the front of the pack. Behind the scenes a small army of team personnel kept the wheels turning and helped Honda on their road to glory.
