Announce coming events

The event is a “Show and Shine” for the display of any motor car, commercial (less than 3 Tonne), motor cycle regardless of Age or Condition and is open to original or restored vehicles and everything in between.

If your vehicle is “special” to you, then please feel free to enter our event.

It should also be noted by all participants that whilst this day is a competitive day - and there are a number of trophies allocated, the aim is for everyone to have an enjoyable day out with friends, family and great machinery in a stunning setting on the Torquay foreshore.

The Promoter

The Rotary Club of Torquay has run this event since 2007. 

This Event has become our Clubs’ major fundraising projects. Each year the quality and number of entrants has grown, we now have in excess of 450 vehicles on display and some 6,000 spectators through the gates. 

While a number of community groups and commercial organisations are involved on the day providing services, all key roles including traffic, parking, and administration are undertaken by

Rotary Club Members as part of their personal commitment to the club and their enthusiasm to put on a great show for fellow motoring enthusiasts and the Torquay community.

Should you be interested in learning more about our Rotary club, or perhaps becoming a member, then please connect to our clubs WEBSITE (click here), our Facebook page (click here), or contact one of our members at the Administration tent.

Thank you for your support of our event and we trust that you have a great time in Torquay.
