2001 - Shawn Taylor (STR Service Centre)
The 2001 Shell LiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award (Eastern) was won by Shawn Taylor and his business STR Service Centre.
With ten years experience in racing and maintaining his own motorbikes, Shawn spotted a demand for his expertise and knowledge, and in May 2000 he decided to bring his talent to a wider market and STR Service Centre and Shawn Taylor Racing began trading. In the 13 months leading to his place in the 2001 final, the business had grown rapidly to provide general servicing for cars and motorbikes, supply performance parts and race accessories, and provide a full race preparation service for cars, motorbikes and go-karts.
