Shell’s involvement in the MotoGP World Championship
MotoGP is the premier motorcycle racing championship in the world: a 19-race series that will visit 15 countries on four continents this season, with pan-global television coverage. The world’s most skilled riders line up on the grid armed with cutting-edge motorcycle technology and prototype machinery.
Established as a world championship by the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) in 1949, MotoGP is now into its 68th year. It is the oldest motorsport championship in the world and is steeped in a rich history with events that have taken place in every corner of the world.
The 2018 MotoGP seasons sees three-time world champion Jorge Lorenzo once again partner Andrea Dovizioso at Ducati Corse, with hopes high after a successful 2017 season which saw the team claim six overall victories with Dovizioso finishing runner-up in the riders’ standings.
On top of providing bespoke Shell Advance motorcycle oils and Shell V-Power fuel for the Ducati factory team’s Desmosedici GP18s, Shell also continues its support to Ducati supported team Pramac Racing and its riders Danilo Petrucci and Jack Miller.
