Meeting point # 2 is at the Vasse Coles Car park in Vasse. You can join in with the Busselton mob as they drive on by on their way to Cowaramup. Be at Vasse by 12.20pm

We will hang at Millers Icecream until about 2 to 2.30pm then take a drive up the street in Margaret River to help promote Sundays event.

We then head back to Busselton to do a similar cruise up the main street.

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.

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 (if enough merchants)

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 (big blue marquee) while the wee ones colour in.

As usual there will be some seriously delicious food and refreshments provided by local vendors.

As per last year we will run a FREE BUS SERVICE between the event venue and the Busselton town centre (on an hourly basis), all made possible by the kind donation of us bus for the day by THE ORANGE COACH CHARTERS in Busselton, PH 1300 523 000 for 12 to 57 seat luxury coaches.

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 helps us to plan an appropriate layout so please help us to make this day run smoothly for all. ... but if you just get that last minute urge to join us we wont say no.

This event will proceed rain, hail or shine. No vehicles will be permitted to leave oval until the end of event at 2.30pm due to sponsorship and legal requirements.
