Shell V-Power Racing Team
Viva Energy Australia’s partnership with DJR Team Penske dates back to 1967 when Shell first sponsored Australian motorsport legend, Dick Johnson.
At the end of 2016, the historic partnership was reborn as the newly named Shell V-Power Racing Team was announced for the 2017 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, with drivers Scott McLaughlin (car 17) and Fabian Coulthard (car 12). The 2017 season was one of the most exciting in Supercars history with the Shell V-Power Racing Team crowned as Supercars Teams’ Champions and both drivers finishing inside the top 3. In a thrilling season finish, Scott McLaughlin narrowly missed out on the Drivers’ Championship in the final seconds of the final race of the year in Newcastle.
The partnership goes beyond sponsorship with a close technical collaboration between Shell, Team Penske, Viva Energy Australia and DJR Team Penske on product development. This shared expertise helps Shell to bring motorsport technology to Australian drivers through premium fuel and lubricants products, including Shell V-Power and Shell Helix.
The relationship continues with Shell V-Power committed to partnering with DJR Team Penske into the next decade, building upon the history and great success they have enjoyed for more than 50 years.
