Shannons Cars and Coffee – Saturday 15 Aug 2015 @ The Hangar @ The TAMS Depot
Aug 15 @ 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Hello All,

Once again Shannons is holding another 'Canberra Car's and Coffee' and we're all invited to attend at their new venue.

To accommodate the growing number of people coming along to our Cars, Bikes n Coffee events we have hired out ‘The Hangar’ which is an old government warehouse that dates back to the 1940’s! It’s an awesome, huge indoor venue with plenty of space to grow.

To celebrate this big step forward we have booked the Shannons Super Rig to come along and we will also have a number of passes to the Big Boys Toys Expo the following weekend that will be raffled off with all proceeds donated to charity.

Like our previous days, this isn’t a car show, you can come and go as you please. It’s a great opportunity to have a social catch up with other members of the car and bike community. We hope to see everyone there!

What: Shannons Canberra Cars ‘n’ Coffee
When: Saturday 15th August
Time: 9am to 2pm
Where: The Hangar @ The TAMS Depot, 255 Canberra Ave, Fyshwick, ACT, 2609 (Corner of Canberra Ave & Lithgow Street)

Ford Nationals @ Sydney Dragway
Sep 26 @ 9:00 AM – 10:00 PM

EVENT INFORMATION
The Ford Nationals offer lots of different events for entrants to take on during the course of the one-day event. Check this out;
 
SHANNON'S INSURANCE SHOW 'N' SHINE
   The show and shine will be held in the pit area between 9am and 4pm – at which time the Trophy Presentation will take place. The Show Categories will be broken up into three sections – Show, Street, Race.
   Show will be for those Fords that are either built to a full Elite Car level with detailed underside or for those outrageous builds that have massive engines bolted in, tubs and 20-plus inch billet wheels but still retain the familiar street car look. 
   Street will be for those registered cars that don't have detailed undersides. This will be by far the largest section of the show and shine.
   Race Cars are those purpose built cars that aren't registered and are there for one purpose – going fast!
 
DYNO COMPETITION
   Also held in the pit area, the Dyno will be operating all day but you need to book you run in with the operators and pay the necessary fee to the guys on the stand.
   There will be several trophies up for grabs here too which will be awarded at 4.00pm.
 
A&B MOTORSPORTS AUTOCROSS
   The Autocross Circuit will be set-up inside the pit area too and will no doubt be popular amongst the entrants who thinks they have a well-handling car. Basically, you get two laps to score a time. Each cone hit incurs a penalty. Great to find out just how well you know the limits of your car…
 
BURNOUTS
   Limited to the first 50 cars to enter, the Burnout Competition will be held on Sydney Dragways huge pad. As we've seen in the past, there's lots of Commodore-based Burnout machines just itching to shred the tyres and take home the bragging rights as the first Ford Nationals Burnout Champion. The Burnouts will take place from 5pm-6pm.
 
DRAG RACING
   Limited to just 200 cars, the Drag Racing will start when the Burnouts finish at 6pm. There will be no brackets and no classes – just heads-up grudge racing until 10.00pm. We may have some head to head Pro-Street Monsters in the mix as well.
