This year’s new-look RACQ MotorFest hit top gear with more than 500 exhibitors and thousands of patrons flocking to the annual event.

Held at the Brisbane Showgrounds for the second year, this year’s event on 19 June featured a fresh layout with car displays, exhibits, entertainment and food stalls spread across the Showgrounds precinct.

MotorFest 2022 attracted more than 10,000 patrons and raised more than $20,000 for the RACQ Foundation, which will support Queensland communities affected by natural disasters.

RACQ events manager Tamara Van Der Walt said the event featured displays of more than 500 vehicles, from vintage cars to the latest electric vehicles.

“This year’s event was spread over a larger area and the feedback on this change has been very positive,” Ms Van Der Walt said.

“MotorFest again proved to be a great day of family entertainment with something for everyone. You don’t need to be a hardcore motoring enthusiast to have a great time.”

Ms Van Der Walt said planning was already underway to improve the event in 2023.

“We look forward to the continued support from our exhibitors and expect an even bigger Future Zone,” next year.

“Future Zone was introduced last year to display the latest low-emission mobility technology and expanded this year, including home sustainability solutions.

“There are expected to be many more developments in this space over the next 12 months and we look forward to patrons being able to get a taste of them at MotorFest 2023.

The big winner on the day was Rodney Greasley whose 1939 Jaguar SS was named winner of the British category and prestigious Judges’ Choice award.
