partnership for Shannons

Major Events Gold Coast is delighted to see that Cooly Rocks On continues to provide the perfect partnership for Shannons

Shannons is Australia’s leading insurance provider for motoring enthusiasts and one of Australia’s leading motorcycle insurance providers and supports more than 1,200 car and motorcycle enthusiast events throughout Australia every year.

Shannons Auctions is Australia’s leading auction house for veteran, vintage, classic, sporting and modified vehicles, as well as classic motorcycles, motoring memorabilia and numerical number plates. In addition, Shannons offers free membership to the Shannons Club – Australia’s largest online motoring enthusiast community.

As a major sponsor of the event and the naming rights sponsor of the Shannons Show ‘n’ Shine, Shannons involvement enables them to connect with a passionate tribe of attendees who love driving and talking about classic vehicles and motorcycles.

Shannons’ Business Development Manager (Qld), Phil Ross said,

Shannons is proud to be a major sponsor in 2021 and has attended every year since Wintersun 2002, the very same year I started with Shannons.  Cooly Rocks On is our most popular event on the event calendar for our staff and after nearly 20 years with Shannons, it’s still my favourite event. It’s where we all get to ‘share the passion’ with lots of our customers and spectators who drop-in to talk to us about their special cars.

Major Events Gold Coast, General Manager, Marketing & Communications, Lisa Lees said

We are delighted to work with partners who love our events as much as we do.  Cooly Rocks On* has evolved into Australia’s largest Rock ‘n’ Roll and nostalgia festivals and we bring it together each year with the passionate support of our partners such as Shannons.  A signature event on the Queensland events calendar, the festival attracts thousands of Rock ‘n’ Roll, vintage car and bike enthusiasts looking to celebrate the music, memories and moments of the 50s, 60s and 70s.  It’s the perfect ‘marriage’ for us and a powerful partnership for Shannons.

You’ll be able to find the Shannons team in Queen Elizabeth Park with their Super Rig Truck taking centre stage. They will be hosting their popular Garage Torque sessions and will have legendary V8 Supercars driver Jim Richards making a special appearance across the weekend.

A final word from Phil Ross,

Where else can you find a location, where the backdrop is one of the world’s greatest surf beaches and the streets adjacent are closed to show off classic cars, great music & food for thousands of spectators.
