Motorcycles from the past and present will be on show at the annual RACQ MotorFest tomorrow, July 10, 2016, with more than 30 bikes being judged.
Half of those will be old BMWs which will be on display at the BMW stand along weith cars to honour the marque’s 100 years.
Apart from the usual classic motorcycles on display, there will be displays of modern motorcycles from Harley-Davidson, Indian Motorcycle and Victory Motorcycles.
RACQ spokesman and keen motorcyclist Steve Spalding says they have introduced an additional award for the bikes this year to help separate the very early ones from the later post 1960 bikes.
MotorFest is one of Queensland’s biggest community events, attracting more than 15,000 visitors. There will be more than 500 classic, vintage, veteran and collectible cars and motorcycles at the Eagle Farm Racecourse in Ascot.
The $2 entry to Motorfest will help raise vital funds to support the lifesaving work of the RACQ Rescue Helicopter Network. Gates open at 10am and close at 3pm.
There will also be attractions from Dreamworld and Australia Zoo, roving entertainment, RACQ and Partner Trade Stalls, free amusement rides and a petting zoo for the kids.
Free public car parks surrounding Eagle Farm Racecourse will operate on the day including on the corner of Lancaster Road and Kitchener Road (enter via Kitchener Rd) and two more at Doomben Racecourse with free shuttle buses to the gates. There are allocated disabled parking bays via McGill Avenue.
