Fuel and convenience retailer Coles Express has extended its partnership with the Shell V-Power Racing Team.

Coles Express is the exclusive retailer of Shell’s premium V-Power 98 octane fuel across more than 700 sites around Australia.

The team has enjoyed great success since linking with Coles Express, including Scott McLaughlin’s 2018 Drivers’ Championship and a sensational start to the 2019 Supercars season that has seen the team take 19 of 24 wins to date.

This includes a record-breaking 17 victories for McLaughlin, marking his 2019 season as the most successful in Australian Touring Car History – with six races still remaining.

“This team has had an amazing period of success across 2018 and much of 2019,” said Greg Davis, Coles Chief Executive – Commercial and Express.

“Since we joined the team, they have taken 17 pole positions and 21 race victories. It’s an almost unprecedented level of success, and we’re very proud to have played a part in it.

"Hopefully we can share another couple of championships with the team in 2019.”

Shell V-Power Racing Team Managing Director Ryan Story said the team takes great pride in working with brands such as Coles Express.

“Coles Express services over two-million customers a week, and is one of the most recognised brands in fuel retailing in Australia,” said Story.

“As the exclusive retailer of Shell V-Power premium fuel, the partnership is an easy fit and we look forward to continued success with Coles Express.”
