As the 2017 Karting season is about to kick off, we are delighted to announce Shannons Insurance continues it’s support of Emerson Harvey for a fourth consecutive year.
Emerson is set for a very busy year taking on the best young drivers in the country in the KA4 class, as well as stepping up to KA3.
National Marketing Manager Mark Behr says “Shannons is proud to continue our support of Emerson as he develops his motor racing skills. It's great to see Emerson follow in his Grandfather's footsteps and we are certain John will be watching with keen interest as Emerson competes to hone his skills. Shannons has been an intrinsic part of Australian motorsport for many years and supporting young talent like Emerson is key to that”.
“It’s absolutely amazing to think that Emerson was only 10 when the relationship with Shannons started”, recalls Motorsport legend John Harvey.
"To have Shannons supporting Emerson is truly great to see. I watch a lot of racing these days on TV & the Shannons brand covers all facets of Motorsport in this country, so to support a young promising driver at this grass roots level just shows their commitment.”
The Shannons backed driver has also caught the eye of the team at GoPro ANZ, so this year will be supported by the company that makes the world’s most versatile camera, along with their 20 million plus social media family.
Also continuing to back the team is Dutton Garage and V-Sport Australia.
Some of the feature races this season include travelling to New South Wales, South Australia and far North Queensland for the Australian Championships and the possibility of a few races in the Asian Championship later in the year.
