Powersports promotion and event management.....
.that's what we're all about! 47industries was formed in 2004 to produce quad bike specific movies for ATV riders and enthusiasts throughout Australia and beyond. The footage was initially based around the riders of QuadridersSA in South Australia, but over time the films became more national, involving more interstate riders, trails and events. With a lack of ATV specific events existing in Australia, 47 ran the first ‘Thumb Pump 300' race in April 08. Over time this event has evolved into the Thumb Pump ATV Festival, Australia’s biggest ATV event which takes place every Easter at Pinnaroo, SA. The festival consists of a 300km 2 day race (the original Thumb Pump 300), a 100km night race (the Highbeam 100) and sand drags, with other events coming on line every year. 47ind also runs Australia’s biggest ATV race team, the Can-am Factory X-Team, with riders from all around Australia competing in most major ATV events on the calendar. More recently, SSV racing has been included in the X-Team stable, with Australian Rally Champion Michael Guest joining the team to compete in the Australian Rally Championship on board a Can-am Commander 1000X with full 47industries and Can-am factory support. The close relationship between 47industries and Can-am BRP Australia has seen other event management opportunities for the 47 team, including the Can-am Spyder Experience in Australia and New Zealand, regular field day events, Australasian sales conference demo ride site management for ATV, SSV and PWC (Sea-doo) and annual Spyder Roadster owners events, to name a few. The team also attend major PWC Watercross National Title events to support the many Sea-doo supported racers throughout Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Thailand. Film making and other media based activities are also regularly undertaken to assist the BRP marketing department for both Australian and International releases and presentations. 47industries Corporate Adventure Tours (CAT) offer high end tours on ATV’s to some of the most remote locations in Australia, with all facilities included on these fly in/fly out riding adventures.
The evolution of 47industries from film makers to an all encompassing powersports promotion and event management company has been an amazing journey, and who knows what lies around the corner....exciting isn’t it!
