The fun, atmosphere and excitement of RACQ MotorFest will return to Eagle Farm Racecourse, Ascot on Sunday, 9 July 2017 from 10am-3pm. As always, the event promises to have something for everyone.

In 2017, all the family favourites will return, including roving entertainment, FREE kids’ amusement rides, FREE face painting, petting zoo, and a gourmet selection of food and coffee including some of Brisbane’s favourite food trucks. There’s also RACQ stalls and partners offering discounts, giveaways and competitions.
