Shannons Insurance backs John Harvey’s grandson.

Shannons Insurance has welcomed Cadet Go-Kart driver, Emerson Harvey, to the brand in recognition of his passion for the sport and his family-racing heritage.

Eleven-year-old Emerson is a fourth generation driver of the Harvey family, following in the footsteps of his famous Granddad John Harvey, 1983 Bathurst winner and Holden legend.

Emerson has the DNA blueprint of another potential champ on wheels and his Pa is his number one fan. 

“I’m thrilled that Shannons are behind Emerson, it’s encouraging that such a big corporate company recognise the value in supporting the sport at this grass roots level where it all begins”, said John Harvey.

Shannons Insurance marketing manager, Mark Behr, added, “We are very pleased to be supporting Emerson. It’s important that we look after young talent and we’ve demonstrated that over the years with the Shannons Supercar Showdown, while also recently recognising our past champions like his grandfather, John Harvey as part of Shannons Legends of Motorsport. I’m sure Emerson has a great future ahead of him and Shannons are proud to support him.”

Currently at the mid-way point of the 2014 season and leading his club championship, Emerson will compete at the Victorian Closed Titles, Junior Sprint Classic, Australasian Kart Titles and the prestigious invite only Queensland Race of Stars which coincides with Indy on the Gold Coast.

Emerson carries on John's racing number 76 and is especially excited about hitting the track in the Shannons colors, complete with chequered flag.
