McLaren Melbourne and Zagame to lead the field at Shannons Nationals


The Shannons Nationals is pleased to announce a new partnership with McLaren Melbourne and Zagame Autosport, which will see them supply the official Shannons Nationals Safety Car in 2017.

A McLaren 570S sports car will be the Safety Car for the Nationals this season, launching this weekend at the season opening round at Sandown.

Director of the Shannons Nationals, Michael Smith, says he’s excited about the new partnership and is looking forward to seeing what McLaren Melbourne and Zagame Autosport can bring to the Nationals this season.

“We are pleased to welcome McLaren Melbourne and Zagame Autosport to the Shannons Nationals, and their McLaren 570S will be a perfect fit as the official Shannons Nationals Safety Car,” Smith said.

“The car sounds amazing and looks the goods with the Shannons Nationals branding and we cannot wait to see it at all of our rounds around Australia this season.”

Zagame Autosport General Manager Cameron McConville also mentioned they are looking forward to joining the ever-growing Shannons Nationals.

"It's a great opportunity to partner with the Shannons Nationals for the entire season, without a doubt it's an iconic series in Australia and we believe the McLaren 570S will only add to the professionalism of this series," McConville said.

"The car will also be on display between events at our state of the art McLaren dealership in Swan St, Richmond."

The McLaren 570S is a sports car designed and manufactured by McLaren Automotive, and is powered by a new iteration of the 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged engine and delivers 419 kW.
