Shannons Shortcut Is Back For 2017 Monster Energy Aus-X Open Sydney


Posted: Thursday, 2nd November, 2017 : 8:23 PM - - 1,567 Reads




Leading motorcycle and automotive insurer Shannons Insurance is on board as Official Insurance Partner for the second year in a row at the Monster Energy AUS-X Open Sydney, with the return of the ‘Shannons Shortcut’ incorporated into the track again for 2017.

The unique Shannons Shortcut takes avoids the slowest part of the track at this year’s event, making the timing of usage more strategic than ever, as each individual rider has only one chance per race to miss the whoop section of track and gain an advantage over the competition.

“The Shannons Shortcut gives riders the opportunity to skip the whoops on one lap." Former Australian Supercross Champion Daniel Reardon commented. "The interesting thing about whoops is that they generally get worse as the race goes on, so you’ve got to be pretty calculated about when you’re going to make it work.”

“I think this year is going to be interesting where they’ve placed it (Shannons Shortcut) on the track." DPH Motorsports Kade Mosig added. "For me, at the end of a 20-lap final, I may be able to save that last lap and get that last lap pass in or do a dash in the last lap and get two passes. So you never know, it’s going to be one to think about.”

Current SX1 championship leader can see the short cut having a big influence on the outcome of both nights main events.

“The Shannons Shortcut is going to be a massive play on how the race actually unfolds." Brayton stated. "To go around the whoops is a massive benefit, obviously the whoops are sometimes the most challenging part of the track, so to be able to go around those once, it's going to be a huge strategy.

"If you get the holeshot, do you take it right away or do you wait, or do you watch track positions? There’s a lot of different things that can play into that, and I think it's just one more cool thing about the AUS-X Open is to know when to take the Shannons Shortcut.”

To celebrate, Shannons Insurance has up for grabs an exclusive meet and greet opportunity on either Saturday or Sunday at this year's event with 4 x times World Supercross Champion and the Greatest Rider Of All Time (GOAT) - Ricky Carmichael.

Shannons Insurance Business Development Manager - Sheena Watkins said the team is excited to once again be on board as the Official Insurance Partner for the 2017 Monster Energy AUS-X Open Sydney.

"Shannons believe in supporting the motorcycling community, which includes one of a kind events such as AUS-X, that appeals to all motorcycling enthusiasts, young and old, while giving them the opportunity to meet, greet and watch some of the best riders in the SX & FMX worlds. Well done to the organisers and looking forward to some great racing!" Watkins said.

Monster Energy AUS-X Open Event Director and Co-founder Ryan Sanderson said the partnership with Shannons Insurance is an important one and the Shannons Shortcut adds such an exciting and dynamic element to the final races, which continues to make the AUS-X Open one of the most exciting Supercross and action sports events in the world.

"We're proud to have such an iconic brand on board again in Shannons Insurance supporting our Monster Energy AUS-X Open and the motorcycling and action sports community, it's awesome to have such a fantastic addition in the Shannons Shortcut to spice up the racing, I feel this year will definitely be the best racing and strongest fields of Supercross racers we have ever seen in AUS," exclaimed Sanderson.

The Shannons Shortcut has been responsible for some of the most incredible Supercross action ever seen in 2015 & 2016, and is set to be no different for this year’s event, available for each rider, once only in the respective SX1 and SX2 Final Races on Saturdayand Sunday.
