NEW DATE: Club Display: AusGarage A Day For Car Enthusiasts - 4th May 2014


05 Mar : 19:51
 None    

On the 4th Mayon our club calendar we had planned for another cruise. AusGarage on the same day are holding their second "A Day For Car Enthusiasts" at Pine Rivers Park.
We attended this event last year as a club and it was a great day. Big mix of different car clubs, trade stalls, good food and most of a great social day.
We are looking at changing the cruise to this and will do the planned cruise route for our next cruise.

Info from the Facebook event page:

It’s on again! After the great success of our first "A Day for Car Enthusiasts" event last year we’re holding another one on Sunday the 4th May. This event is all about bringing car events back to the basics. Cars, food, enthusiasts and a great venue for a Sunday afternoon.

We’ll have a DJ playing on the day with entertainment and gourmet food. This is a chance for all automotive enthusiasts from Muscle, Euro, Japanese, hot rods, motorsport and bikes to display their vehicle, sit down and enjoy great company.

There’ll be a VIP section with 300 spots available to display your car in the amphitheater amongst the trade stands and entertainment. VIP parking is $10 and available for pre order with any spare spots sold on the day. (VIP tickets pre order available from 01/03/14)

For those who aren't looking to purchase VIP tickets we will have the oval below the amphitheater open for general public. This will be just a gold coin per car entry collected at the gate.

Car clubs are strongly encouraged, AusGarage appreciates that car clubs are the backbone of the automotive community and we would love to section off a location for your club on the day.


Facebook Event page for anyone wanting to follow it: https://www.facebook.com/events/668495866541977/

Due to the available spots for VIP display (which is what we will be doing) if you would like to come along and have a great day and display your car and represent our club if you could please post your interest so we can get an idea on numbers to let James know how much room we require.

The Club will have 12 spots at the event, come down and have a look
