The 2017 Shannons Night of Champions was one of the most successful and enjoyable so far. So much work and preparation goes into organising these events and without the generous contribution from sponsors, the night would not have the special touches that make these types of evening memorable.
Shannons Insurance offered their support again this year for the Night of Champions which we are so grateful for. Shannons and Motorsport go hand in hand with their support of nearly everything on wheels and having them as the naming sponsor for our awards night adds to the prestige. They have not only given generously to our evening but have supported Motorcycling WA with various contributions to help publicise events our clubs run.
This year KTM & Husqvarna Motorcycles Australia not only supplied fabulous spot prizes for the evening but also sponsored the Outstanding Women Involved in the Sport Award. Their bike displays on the night made the room look more fitting than ever before showcasing the latest models. KTM Australia not only contributed to the evening but have supported Motorcycling WA’s Motosafe program throughout 2017 by supplying a KTM 85SX. This bike was taken to many schools across the state as part of the program and has been a centre piece for over 2000 children to enjoy.
Five Star Yamaha is also one of MotorcyclingWA’s biggest supporters with their contribution to the Night of Champions and their support of the 2017 MINI-X program. The MINI-X program is designed to be the first fun step into motorcycle sport. At these events kids get to master controlling their bikes with the help of accredited coaches and 6 different obstacles/challenges to develop and test their abilities. With Five Stars contribution we can offer a PW50, TTR50 or Raptor50 for kids that want to try riding bikes for the first time. This has been a fantastic opportunity that could not exist without Five Stars contribution.
