Welcome to Motorfest 2016
SHOW DAY is SUNDAY 27TH NOVEMBER 2016

A "CAR CRUISE" will again be held on Saturday, 26th November (the day before the Motorfest event) . Further details to follow
The Busselton MotorFest was first inspired by the long held dream of Ray Dowell of the Busselton Football Club. Ray had no problem finding local "motorheads" to help make the dream of having a local motor show come true! In 2006 the first event attracted about 150 exhibits, and by last years show this was up to more than 340 exhibits. The event continues to be specifically a FAMILY orientated outing that gives everyone the opportunity to show / view a wide range of motor types... be it stationary motors from a past era, vintage and modern vehicles, tractors, bikes, speedway & drag racing beasts, streetcars, or just the pure show of muscle power... (Ford & Holden rivalry is alive and well!). Car Clubs from all over the state also make a significant presence.
The whole event is run purely on a volunteer basis as a fundraiser for nominated charity/cause/individual.
Australia's STRONG MAN ....MATT VANBERNINGEN will be back to impress with his mighty muscles!! The Radio Rally Club will also make a return with their NITRO RC RACING CARS to put a big smile on many a "big kids" face!
Check out TRADERS ALLEY and the popular Auto Jumble Sale
There will be a variety of FREE children's activities to keep them occupied, but remember you must supervise your children as no creche facility is available, however we can offer a comfy chair in the Ladies Lounge marquee.
As usual there will be some seriously delicious food and refreshments provided by local vendors...Kona Joe's Health Shack, Moody Cow Icecreams, Yahava Koffee Works, Mr Kebab, Mr Wicked's Icecream Van, Vibelicious Healthy Food Van, BFC Club Kitchen
As per last year we will run a FREE BUS SERVICE between the event venue and the Busselton town centre (on an hourly basis).
While competition is not given priority at this event, local sponsors do provide trophies for a variety of categories.. some serious.. some not!
PLEASE NOTE... while we are a pretty laid back mob here you could well stress us out if you just show up on the day without nominating! NOMINATION IS ESSENTIAL as last year the oval was just about full to capacity. Please help us to make this day run smoothly for all.
