WALES RALLY GB POWERS AHEAD WITH SHELL
Wales Rally GB is delighted to announce that Shell will be the Official Fuels and Lubricants Partner to the British round of the 2015 FIA World Rally Championship (12-15 November).
Shell has a long and successful history competing at the highest level of global motor sport. In the FIA World Rally Championship Shell has a well-established Technical Partnership with Hyundai Motorsport, supplying the team with Shell Helix Ultra lubricants. The collaboration with Wales Rally GB represents another valuable platform for Shell to showcase its technology leadership, using motor sport as the ultimate product development test bed.
Last year, Shell supported Wales Rally GB’s ‘Rally Legend’ programme, which honoured legendary ace Ari Vatanen who – together with co-driver Terry Harryman – had famously won Rally GB exactly 30 years earlier in 1984.
“This event is growing quickly in profile and the endorsement of a company such as Shell lends further credibility to the ambitions we have for the rally in the coming years.”“We are delighted to welcome Shell as an official partner to Wales Rally GB,” said Ben Taylor, Managing Director of Wales Rally GB. “Last year, we were able to leverage Shell’s amazing heritage in the sport but this year it is all about the modern day and the company’s exciting Technical Partnership with Hyundai.
A full range of tickets for Wales Rally GB is now on sale, offering considerable savings for those booking in advance, while access to the Deeside Service Park is free of charge. The latest event and ticket information is available on the official WalesRallyGB.com website.
