Proud Meguiar’s MotorEx sponsor, Shannons, is gearing up for a massive show this weekend. Taking pride of place at the Shannon’s Main Stage will be the Formula 3 racer that launched F1 Superstar, Valtteri Bottas onto the world stage. V8 Supercar hot-shoe, Scott Pie also spent seat time in the thoroughbred machine as well. It’s now competing in Australia sporting Shannons livery.
Adjacent to the F3 racer at the Shannons Main Stage is the Porsche Cayman GT4 of Australian motorsport icon, Jim Richards. The Cayman GT4 made its world-wide rallying debut at the hands of the Shannons ambassador in the 2016 Targa Tasmania – in which the eight-time winner came home third. No doubt this pure-bred racer will wow the crowds all weekend.
The Shannons stand in the Meguiar’s Superstars Pavilion will be a hive of activity thanks to the insane stoplight-burning, MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster RR on display. This wild-child carries the soul of Giacomo Agostini, who immortalised the Italian motorcycle manufacturer by winning many of his 15 world championships aboard MV Augusta machinery.
Best of all, by making your way to the Shannons stand, you also get the opportunity to gain entry into the Jim Richards hot-laps competition. No doubt getting strapped into Jim’s GT3 Porsche racer for a thrilling, ride-of-a-lifetime around Sandown circuit will be experience you’ll never forget.
With so much going on, be sure to drop by the Shannons stand at this weekend’s Meguiar’s MotorEx, Melbourne Showgrounds.
