Show, Sprint pull bumper crowds to fore­shore

Midwest Times - - NEWS -

Or­gan­is­ers say record crowds at­tended the Mid­west Show & Shine and Deni­son Fore­shore Sprint in Port Deni­son late last month.

The event saw the fore­shore along Port Le­an­der Drive trans­formed into a race track, with clas­sic and vin­tage car own­ers nav­i­gat­ing the 2.5km course with an ar­ray of im­mac­u­late pre-1985 ve­hi­cles.

Now in its third year, the Fore­shore Sprint has fast be­come a pop­u­lar at­trac­tion for pun­ters crav­ing speed and adren­a­line.

Mean­while, a daz­zling range of cars and mo­tor­cy­cles span­ning many decades were wheeled out for dis­play in the Show ‘n Shine.

The pop­u­lar an­nual event is a chance for proud own­ers to show off their labours of love to ad­mir­ing spec­ta­tors.

Other at­trac­tions came in the form of the Rob Wa­ters Su­per Truck show and Beat the Heat WA — a po­lice ini­tia­tive in which of­fi­cers take to the track to build con­nec­tions with and ed­u­cate young driv­ers through the com­mon ground of mo­tor­sport.

Beat the Heat WA’s Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Mike Pearson, a vet­eran po­lice of­fi­cer of 34 years, said the event had been a stand-out.

“In my 14 years at the helm, we have at­tended in ex­cess of 550 events and I can say that this would have to be the best event we have at­tended for both com­peti­tors and spec­ta­tors alike,” he said.
