From an array of prestigious classic cars to the latest cutting-edge electric vehicles, the family-favourite event showcases the best of motoring's past, present and future.

This year’s MotorFest is celebrating 100 years of Jaguar and the luxury car brand’s rich history will be told through the 60 unique Jaguars that will cruise into the Brisbane Showgrounds. 
RACQ Motoring Editor and MotorFest Judge Ged Bulmer said Queenslanders love their cars and love to show them off at Motorfest.

“It never fails to amaze us how many exceptional vehicles there are tucked away in garages and sheds across the State, and MotorFest always seems to draw them out,” said Mr Bulmer. 

"From vintage trucks to classic Americanas, Brit sports cars and thumping Aussie muscle cars, Motorfest will have more than 500 cars of all makes, models, eras and styles on display

"This year, judges reviewed more than 250 cars, trucks and motorcycles across 11 categories. It’s a task we look forward to each year and we’re excited to announce the winners of the vehicle competition categories, and the recipient of the coveted Judges’ Choice Award at the event.”

RACQ Events Manager Tamara Van Der Walt said another highlight of this year’s event would be the Future Zone, which delves into the exciting technologies reshaping the motoring industry.

“The Future Zone will showcase the latest in low-emissions vehicle technology and the future of mobility,” Ms Van Der Walt said.

“We’ll also be showing people how they can live more sustainably with in-home solutions for greener living on display, such as solar systems and home batteries.”

At just $2 entry, families will not only get to admire more than 500 vintage and modern cars, there will also be plenty of favourite family activities, including free kids rides, face painting, roving entertainment and food stalls.
