Penske confirms Shell livery for Clipsal

DJR Team Penske will kick-start the 2016 V8 Supercars season with two cars in the iconic colours of Shell.

The team used Shell colours on several occasions last season as part of its rolling sponsorship programme, the familiar colours a throwback of sorts to the famous era of Shell-backed Dick Johnson Racing cars in the Australian Touring Car Championship and V8 Supercars.

Now the DJR Team Penske squad will use the Shell livery on its debut as a two-car team at the Clipsal 500.

“Last year’s Shell Helix livery was definitely a fan favourite. We had generations of fans all telling us that it was one of the best looking cars out there,” said the team’s managing director Ryan Story.

“As good as the car looks, it’s just the tip of the iceberg in our expanded partnership with Viva Energy. They share an extensive and successful commercial arrangement with Penske Transportation Group International here in Australia which makes the 2016 partnership even more important for the team.”
