Shell V-Power Racing: The best fuel for road warriors and petrolheads

The names Shell and Shell V-Power Racing need little or no introduction. For me at least; my relationship with the brand has been longstanding.

Made popular by the Japanese comic series ‘Initial D’ with the iconic AE86, EVO3 and Skyline GT-R, ‘Touge’ is a form of illegal street racing on twisty mountain roads. Touge can be traced as far […]
