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.
