For the 2015 Show Season The Kangaroo Kid offered one of his biggest fans the opportunity of a lifetime to be part of his shows and the coming season looks set to be a big Kanga adventure for 29 Year old Paul Hannam.
Paul first saw The Kangaroo Kid when he was about seven years old during a visit to an agricultural show. Paul’s sister competed in Horse events at shows across the UK, which meant that Paul was able to watch The Kangaroo Kid perform in the Main Arena. He became a big fan and for his 7th birthday Paul’s parents bought him a Suzuki LT50 quad bike. At 15 Paul started working at Keypitts Off Road Cetnre and spent the next 6 years as a quad instructor. Paul started racing quads at the age of 21, coming 4th three years in a row at the infamous Western Beach Race. In 2011 Paul became South West Enduro Champion and came 3rd in the British Quad Championships.
Matt commented, “I am really happy that Paul has agreed to be a part of my shows in 2015 and 2016. Paul has been to visit me in Australia a few times and we have had quite a few adventures together riding quads, I am now looking forward to many more adventures on the UK show circuit.”
Paul comments, “It is a dream come true to be offered this opportunity and I really appreciate the faith Matt has in me. I am really looking forward to being part of the team and meeting Kanga fans across the UK”.
