MEDIA RELEASE

Midwest Show n Shine and Denison Foreshore Sprint 2018, presented by Making Smoking History

26 September 2018

On Sunday 23 September 2018, the main street of Port Denison was transformed into a race track for modified pre-1985 manufacture cars. Rev-heads navigated the 2.5km course along Point Leander Drive and around the Obelisk as onlookers were enthralled with the speed, sound and atmosphere of the day. Along with the Sprint on the Denison Foreshore, the Midwest Show n Shine provided visitors with an impressive display of vehicles and motorcycles both old and new. The Rob Waters Super Truck demonstration was an exciting new addition this year that proved very popular with punters as well as Acting Senior Sergeant Mike Pearson heading Beat the Heat (WA) Inc (BTHWA), carving up the streets as part of a unique strategy to build alliances between young drivers and the Police.

This hugely successful day brought record crowds to town and wouldn’t have been possible without the effective collaboration of Shire Staff, volunteers, local groups and businesses. BTHWA’s Mike Pearson said I have been managing BTHWA since 2005 and annually (September – May) we would compete or display at over 40 events per season. In my 14 years at the helm of BTHWA, we have attended in excess of 550 events and I can quite safely say that this would have to be the best event we have attended for both competitors and spectators alike.”  Long time locals, Murray and Dianne Brown said “we had great weather, great location and great cars for this event. My congratulations to the Shire for their contribution to the day.”

The streets of Port Denison are now back to normal but the long weekend is still the talk of the town with aspirations of a bigger and better Foreshore Sprint and Midwest Show n Shine next year!
