National Road Transport Wall of Fame to welcome new inductees

Later this month, the Shell Rimula Wall of Fame will celebrate 57 of Australia’s trucking heroes for their lifelong commitment to the road transport community across Australia.

Held from Friday August 26 to Sunday August 28 at the Road Transport Hall of Fame in Alice Springs, the full calendar of celebrations will be returning this year.

Nick Lubransky, transport marketing manager at Viva Energy Australia (the Shell brand licensee in Australia) said, “The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has shone a spotlight on how important the road transport community is for our country. Viva Energy is proud to be able to continue supporting the individuals in this community through our partnership with the Shell Rimula Wall of Fame.”

Shell Rimula is partnering with the Road Transport Hall of Fame to host the weekend of celebrations. This year will also see a return of in-person festivities, with last year’s inductees also given the opportunity to be involved in the induction ceremony.

“We are excited to be back celebrating such an important community and recognising those individuals that have demonstrated a lifelong commitment to the transport industry,” added Lubransky.

“For 21 years now, Shell Rimula and the Road Transport Hall of Fame has supported this special occasion and we are delighted to be back this year to welcome the 2022 inductees in person.”

Kicking off the weekend of festivities will be the popular Transport Women Australia Limited Breakfast on Friday August 26. The weekend’s highlight, which will see 57 new inductees welcomed into the Shell Rimula Wall of Fame, will commence at 3pm on Saturday 27 August.

To date, over 1700 distinguished members of the road transport community have been inducted into the Shell Rimula Wall of Fame. The list of new 2022 inductees will be released following the event.
