Shannons Wheels 2016 – a great success!

On behalf of the membership of the Council of ACT Motor Clubs, I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to all involved in Shannons Wheels 2016 on National Motoring Heritage Day in Canberra.

Running “Wheels” is always a big task, but with the relocation to the backup venue it was a huge task. The event however happened flawlessly and I have heard nothing but great feedback from all stakeholders.

I would like to thank the National Capital Authority, for providing a excellent venue; Mr Mick Gentleman MLA, for opening the event; the sponsors, especially Shannons Insurance and the Auto Hotel, for their much appreciated support; the traders and St Johns First Aiders, for their fantastic service; the local branch of Technical Aid for the Disabled (TADACT) for their tireless work for the disabled, the BMW Club, for organising the event; and, the CACTMC officials and volunteers who ensured that the event ran like clockwork.

But most of all I would like to thank the ACT and interstate motoring enthusiasts who brought along approximately 700 extremely diverse and very interesting vehicles to display; without them there would be no show.

See you all again next year.
