RACQ MotorFest 2018 - Save the date

Sunday, 15 July 2018

The fun, atmosphere and excitement of RACQ MotorFest will return to Eagle Farm Racecourse, Ascot on Sunday, 15 July 2018. As always, the event promises to have something for everyone. Last year, thousands of car buffs and families turned out to see the 400+ prestige, vintage, unique and collector vehicles that were showcased in a colourful carnival environment.

In 2018, all the family favourites will return, including roving entertainment, market stalls, kids’ rides and food stalls. It’s undoubtedly Brisbane’s most inexpensive day out, with funds raised supporting RACQ LifeFlight, RACQ Capricorn Rescue, RACQ CQ Rescue and Heart of Australia.
