Ducati and Shell first entered the MotoGP World Championship in 2003. Just four years later, the team swept all three World Titles – Riders’, Manufacturers’ and Teams’ – in dominant style, becoming the first non-Japanese manufacturer to win the premier class for more than 30 years.

From Track to road

Shell’s commitment to innovation through motorsport is an integral part of an extensive research and development programme that is key to making better fuels and lubricants for its customers, with Shell’s Technical Partnership with Ducati provides an invaluable environment to test Shell V-Power fuels and Shell Advance lubricants in extreme conditions and gives Shell a better understanding of what will deliver improved power, performance and efficiency for everyday motorcycle engines. Ducati not only uses Shell products on the track, but also chooses Shell Advance lubricants and Shell V-Power fuel as the first fill for every Ducati leaving the factory in Bologna, Italy
