Armidale Autumn Festival - Motor Extravaganza
Sunday 17th March 2019
A friend of David Boundy’s, Jason Tracey and his family are the spearhead behind the event. Jason came and spoke with David in 2018 and wanted to run an event to raise funds for cancer research. With his involvement with Tour De Rocks having ridden the event several times it was logical for the funds to be donated to Tour De Rocks. David recalls, “I was on the Board of TDR and knew that we would support Jason in whatever way possible to make this event happen”. With Jason being an avid motoring enthusiast, the support of his family and friends and the backup of a fantastic organisation being TDR the inaugural Armidale Motor Extravaganza was born.
The 2019 extravaganza will be held on Sunday 17th March at the
Armidale Racecourse. Jimmy Deedes, the racecourse Manager was a great supporter of the event last year, and kindly donated the facilities to us once he knew all funds raised was being donated to a charity.
There will be a BBQ on Saturday night for early arrivals and the main show opens on the Sunday morning at 10:00am.
Last year in excess of 220 cars, bikes, trucks, caravans and even some antique machinery were on display. This year will be even bigger with the talk around town since last year. There will be hot rods, muscle cars both Australian and USA, custom trucks, latest model motorbikes, antique motorbikes, drag cars, new cars and yes sorry to the Holden fans but there will be Fords allowed as well.
Coffee vans, BBQ, face painting, jumping castle, Ice cream truck,
Raffles, trophy presentations and a live band will be here as well.
Funds raised from the day go to the Tour de Rocks, supporting cancer research. Last year over $10,000 was raised from the day thanks to the hardwork of many people and like minded individuals.
It is $10 to enter a car or if you are lucky enough to own more than one its still only $10 total for multiple entries. (Please contact Jason Tracey on 0412 182 269 or David Boundy on 0409 325 238 to enter your vehicles.)
Entry fee for the general public is $10 per adult and for a family of four it is $22. Children under 12 free.
Very cheap especially seeing all monies raised goes to charity and the fact that there will be in excess of 10 million dollars of machinery on display.
We hope to see you on the day!
