PIRTEK backs Shell V-Power Racing Team
The Shell V-Power Racing Team announced today that it has extended its partnership with PIRTEK, Australia’s leader in fluid transfer solutions.
As a part of the extended agreement, PIRTEK branding will appear across the top windscreen banners of both Scott McLaughlin’s #17 and Fabian Coulthard’s #12 Shell V-Power Racing Team Fords.
Shell V-Power Racing Team Managing Director Ryan Story said he was proud that the team was associated with a strong Australian brand in PIRTEK.
“Shell V-Power Racing Team and PIRTEK enjoy a very strong relationship both on and off the track,” Story said.
“PIRTEK is a critical technology partner supplying products such as fuel & air hoses, which have to stand up in the high pressure environment of Supercars. We know we can rely on PIRTEK to keep us on track.”
PIRTEK’s Executive General Manager of Marketing, Mark Devitt, said that the brand’s association with the Shell V-Power Racing Team opened up a range of opportunities for the business and its customers.
“We’re looking forward to hitting the track with the Shell V-Power Racing Team in 2017,” Devitt said.
“Our network of franchisees and customers loved getting up close & personal with the race team and the cars, and will be cheering them on to victory this year.
“We would also love to see the Shell V-Power Racing Team, as a PIRTEK-backed team, do well in the PIRTEK Enduro Cup later in the season. We’ll be behind them all the way.”
The Shell V-Power Racing Team will hit the track for the first event of the season this week, at the Clipsal 500 Adelaide across March 2-5.
