Shannons Nationals re-branded for 2020

The new name comes as part of the upcoming branding changes at the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport, the governing body set to be known as Motorsport Australia from January 1 onwards.

It also arrives amid an ongoing overhaul of the national series, which will be headlined by TCR Australia, S5000 and Touring Car Masters and feature a new TV package.

“The decision to re-brand the Shannons Nationals will help bring together events across the country under the Motorsport Australia banner,” said Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships Director Michael Smith.

“We’re also thrilled to have the support of Shannons continue for at least another two years. Having been the naming rights partner of this event for 12 years highlights their strong support of motorsport.

“2020 will be a momentous year for both the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships and Motorsport Australia.”
