Shell JOSLOC at Rimula truck racing challenge

September 2015:  Hungary was host to a Saudi delegation made up of over 180 participants who had travelled, not only to see the FIA European Truck Racing Championship teams at the Shell Hungary Truck Fest, but also take part in the exclusive Shell Rimula Truck Racing Challenge. At the end of the exclusive truck team experience, Shell China were crowned the 2015 Shell Rimula Truck Racing Challenge Team Champions, and the overall Shell Rimula Truck Racing Challenge Country Champions were the team from Shell Germany.

The bespoke Truck Racing Challenge was designed by Shell Rimula to let participants from all over the world put their truck racing team skills to the ultimate test. They navigated their way through a series of obstacles and trials with the guidance of expert instructors as they attempted to master truck control and accuracy tests, mechanical tasks, engineering skills and teamwork challenges in a bid to be crowned the Shell Rimula Truck Racing Champions!

During the challenge, guests were given the chance to see if they had what it takes to be part of a truck-racing team as they experienced the vehicles’ power and gained an appreciation of the demands often placed on the heavy-duty engines of trucks, when operating in real-life conditions. Driver concentration and awareness were also put to the test in a number of precision and finesse driving challenges, as was the ability to work as a team to complete various tasks. And, as if that weren’t enough, all guests experienced the thrill and adrenaline of riding with a professional race driver during an exclusive passenger lap of the Hungaroring.

The Hungarian adventure was not limited to activities at the track. Guests were accommodated at a premium hotel in the heart of Budapest, from which they could explore the historic city and soak up the local atmosphere. In the evenings, they were treated to an array of exclusive dinners hosted by Shell Rimula.

“It has been a very exciting few days in Budapest and a great opportunity for us to be able to bring our valued hardworking Shell Rimula customers together, from across the globe, for such a unique experience in this beautiful city. All of the competitors have been under the guidance of expert instructors and had the opportunity to experience first-hand what it takes to be part of a professional truck racing team, as well as see the teams in action in the Shell Hungary Truck Fest,” said Khalid Yassen, General Manager, B2B, Shell Lubricants.

Shell Rimula understands that truckers have individual motivations that push them to succeed. Just as truck drivers around the world strive to be the best they can for their future, Shell Rimula is committed to constantly innovating, investing heavily to ensure its heavy-duty engine oils are tested in some of the world’s hardest working vehicles and toughest driving conditions. These learnings are then applied to benefit Shell Rimula customers and offer them one of the most advanced lubricant products available for all heavy-duty vehicles.
