The event, which Shell has been a sponsor of for the past 11 years saw approximately 1,000 truck drivers and transport industry members travel to Alice to recognise the inductees of the Shell Rimula Wall of Fame, who were honoured for their lifetime of service to the industry.

Paul Fisher, Account Manager Indirect Lubricants said, “Shell is a proud sponsor of the National Road Transport Hall of Fame – and the Wall of Fame celebrations in particular. It’s such a great experience to come up to Alice Springs and honour the lives and achievements of the characters from the Australian transport sector.

“This is a particularly important sponsorship for Shell as it ensures the longevity of the road transport industries heritage in Australia, and it also provides us with the opportunity to talk to the experts about their rigs – and learn what they want from products like engine oils and diesel fuel.”
