Shell has launched a contest to find Britain’s best driver and promote its V-Power fuel brand. Two teams of 10 candidates from across the UK - one male, led by TV presenter and former-footballer Ian Wright; and one female, led by supermodel Jodie Kidd - will compete in the Shell V-Power Britain’s Best Driver Challenge.

They will take part in a programme of driving events at the Silverstone Grand Prix track, with their progress being charted in weekly instalments posted on a dedicated website - - from January 19. The final showdown will be web-cast on February 14.
