The above was shot during my trip to Shell’s international press event, the latter part of which was held in the Czech Republic and consisted of catching some truck racing at the Most Autodrom in Most, Czech. The trucks, mostly Euro-style cabovers (as noted here by my previous video coverage of the races), topped out at about 100 mph at the track.

Shell reps also gave a future fuel outlook, in which they said conventional fuels like diesel will remain dominant for decades to come. Click here to see coverage of that.
