Virgin Australia Supercars has announced that Shell Fuels is an official partner for the Championship series for the next three years.
“Our race teams and our fans want the best for their vehicles and Shell strives to achieve this – annually they invest $1.5 billion in research and development to advance fuel products,” Supercars Chief Executive Officer James Warburton said.
The sponsorship comes shortly after the launch of the Shell V-Power Racing Team in partnership with DJR Team Penske, which sees Shell V-Power branding on both the No. 12 and No. 17 Ford Falcon XR8s.
Shell V-Power also launched a virtual-reality pit-stop experience at the recent 2017 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, which was held at Clipsal 500 Adelaide.
“The Shell V-Power Pit Stop is the first of its kind in Australia – the simulated pit-stop experience means race fans can see if they have what it takes to get a Supercar out on the track in record time,” Shell’s Licensee CEO Scott Wyatt said. “It certainly gives Supercars fans an insight into the thrill of racing.”
