RACQ MotorFest a hit

Thousands of people descended on Eagle Farm Racecourse yesterday for RACQ MotorFest, to celebrate all things motoring.

Each RACQ MotorFest marked a moment in motoring history. This year, the Club commemorated 50 years of Chevrolet and also had an impressive display of more than 40 Holdens to celebrate the iconic brand’s Australian production.

With more than 450 vintage, classic, electric and prestige vehicles, car fans were wowed by the collection on display. Among some special vehicles this year – Kevin Bartlett and his iconic Chevrolet Camaro, made famous in his 1982 Bathurst crash, with the former racing car driver on hand to answer fans questions.

Peter Brock’s A9X also featured in the special display, showcasing the race-winning car from Bathurst and the Australian Tour Car Championship

It was not just a day for motor enthusiasts though – there was good food, coffee and entertainment for the kids. Roving performers, a petting zoo, face painting, a V8 simulator and rock climbing were among the fun on offer.

All proceeds from RACQ’s MotorFest would go towards the RACQ sponsored Rescue Helicopter network and Heart of Australia.
