CHROME BUMPERS AND CLASSIC’S IN
SHANNONS ‘OLD SCHOOL SUNDAY’ SHOW’N’SHINE
Shannons Insurance, a name that has long-been associated with insurance for modified vehicles and motoring enthusiasts, has joined forces with Jamboree Queensland which itself has long-been synonymous with some of the best sport compact drag racing Australia has to offer.
“Shannons have come on board to sponsor the Old School Sunday show’n’shine,” explains Jamboree event promoter Ray Box. “We’re looking for a big contrast and plenty of diversity in terms of the vehicles we have on show between Saturday and Sunday, with the Shannons show on Sunday focusing on pre-1980 vehicles specifically,” explains Ray Box.
Sports Compact drag racing in Australia was given it’s start with the chrome-bumpered classics of days gone by, and the Shannons Old School Sunday show’n’shine is a way of paying homage to the vehicles that laid the foundation for today’s high-tech drag racers.
“It’ll be amazing to think that people can look on the track and see highly modified versions of the very same street and show cars that we have in the show on Sunday,” explains Ray Box, with vehicles such as the Datsun 1600, the Mazda RX2, RX3 and RX4, Holden Gemini, Toyota Corolla and more all popular vehicles amongst drag racers and show car builders alike.

“We’re really looking forward to the diversity that will be on show, not only in the Shannon’s Old School Sunday show’n’shine, but in terms of the vehicles that will be on show for the whole weekend,” continues Ray Box of the show’n’shine, which is just one of many attractions that spectators and entrants can enjoy in between races.
