When Simpsons SKODA’s Managing Director, Neil Simpson, first started out in his rallying career, one of his first big breaks was to be awarded the Shell Scholarship Prize in 1994.
24 years later the Shell association has been renewed as Simpsons SKODA Group appoint Shell as their group-wide lubricants partner.
Simpsons SKODA chose Shell not simply because of the previous motorsport relationship but because Shell is a leading technology partner of the VW Group, winning many awards from VW for breakthrough lubricant innovation.
Shell Helix Ultra passenger car motor oils are formulated using unique Shell PurePlus Technology, a revolutionary gas-to-liquids technology process that converts natural gas into base oil.
Base oils produced by Shell PurePlus Technology, compared with traditional group II and III base oils, provide enhanced viscosity, friction and volatility performance, and offer the opportunity to develop superior lubricants for the most advanced engines, thereby making Shell Helix Ultra the most-advanced motor oil ever.
Certas Energy UK Limited, who are responsible for Shell Lubricants UK distribution, will manage the account with Simpsons SKODA.
