Shannons Insurance will continue supporting young karter Emerson Harvey as he will compete in the KA4 class and will step up to the KA3 class this year.

Harvey is the grandson of Australian motor racing legend John and will also carry support from GoPro, Dutton Garage and V-Sport, which John is very proud of.

“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 and 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.”

Shannons are also proud to support Harvey as he endeavours to emulate what his grandfather achieved.

“Shannons is proud to continue our support of Emerson as he develops his motor racing skills,” enthused National Marketing Manager Mark Behrs. “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”.

Harvey will travel across Australia, including to Northern Queensland for the Australian Championships, while plans have also been put in place to take in a few races in the Asian Championship later this year.
