MotorFest 2014 Draws Huge Crowds
RACQ Motorfest 2014 was once again a huge success with beautiful Brisbane winter sunshine encouraging thousands of people to flock to Eagle Farm Racecourse at the weekend to experience one of Brisbane’s premier motoring events.
MotorFest 2014 showcased something for everyone, with more than 750 prestige, vintage and collector vehicles on display as well as an abundance of RACQ and partner trade stalls, roving entertainment, fresh produce and craft markets, free kids’ rides and food stalls all helping to raise funds for RACQ’s network of rescue helicopters.
To celebrate 100 years of Maserati, there was a stunning collection of cars from across the ages. With more than 40 models of the American muscle car, it was the perfect showcase of 50 years of Ford Mustang magic. The dependable Dodge stood proudly on display to commemorate its centenary celebration at RACQ MotorFest 2014.
RACQ Group CEO Ian Gillespie said this year’s event was the biggest and best yet.
“It was clear from the sheer number of people who turned out that we had succeeded in putting together another really special event,” Mr Gillespie said.
“We are very proud that we support all of Queensland’s community rescue helicopters and these donations from the public help ensure they can continue its lifesaving work.”
After a well-earned break, preparations will begin to create an even bigger and better MotorFest next year. Stay posted for more information.
