Shannons have once again thrown their support behind grass roots motorsport in Australia, joining forces with Killarnée Targa South West.

The two day event, run by the organisers of one of Australia’s most prestigious tarmac rallies - Quit Targa West, will be held for the first time this weekend (May 29 -30) in the South West regions of Western Australia.

“Shannons have a strong and proud history insuring motoring enthusiasts and Killarnee Targa South West provides us another opportunity to support grass roots motorsport and help the client base that support our company,” Business Development Manager of Shannons Western Australia, Shayne Attwater said.

“We are thrilled to be supporting a great motorsport event in regional WA and wish all the crews all the best for the weekend,” she continued.

Based in Pemberton and the Shire of Manjimup, Killarnée Targa South West is set to bring the thrill of tarmac rallying to new communities for the first time and provides Shannons another opportunity to spread their message.

While providing existing drivers and teams with another opportunity to hone their skills, the event does have a strong focus on encouraging new participants to get involved with the sport at a competitive level in a controlled environment.

Killarnée Targa South West Event Director, Bob Schrader, said events such as this one would not be possible without the continued investment of Shannons.

“Shannons continue to support motorsport in Australia at both national and grassroots level and we are delighted to continue our strong relationship with the company through Killarnée Targa South West,” Schrader said.

All competitors in Killarnée Targa South West will be guaranteed a slot in Quit Targa West providing their vehicle meets the required CAMS Tarmac Rally Technical Regulations.
