Welcome everyone to the

40th annual charters towers


motor show & swap meet 2018

The event is in its 40th year which is an impressive achievement for a small club within a rural community. The event is for enjoyment and to allow car owners, restorers and swappers alike to show off, display and sell their vehicles and items.

The Swap Meet will be in full swing from Friday when gates open at 7:00 am and as always will have many and varied stalls.

All
Motor Show Entrant vehicles are judged with presentations being held on the Sunday afternoon (last day of the event). As well as the static car display there are a number of mobile events throughout the weekend which includes a Street Cruise, Bill Henderson Observation Rally, "Go to Whoa" and Top 10 "Go to Whoa". Along with the Top Ten and the Supreme Entrant, there is also the new category which is CAR OF THE SHOW which is for the top quality judged car that does not have to compete in the driving events.



In
2018 the Charters Towers Motor Show and Swap Meet will be held on June 8th to June 10th.



There is no actual feature car this year however, with good prize money up for grabs it is envisioned that this will encourage a number of entrants with high quality cars to be on show all vying for the top Awards. We are happy to report that ex Summernats professional Judge Matt Gilkes will be in attendance in his role as Adjudicator of the Event and he is keen to find that "something special" amongst the gathering. In celebration of its 40th Anniversary the Club will be having a band on both Friday and Saturday night. The "Nu Black" and "Bad Influence". At 8:30pm on Saturday night there will be a Fireworks display in the Main Arena.

The Swap Meet is known as one of the biggest in North Queensland and as such we foresee the Swap Site area being a hive of activity (as usual) with plenty of bargains to be found.

Around the Showgrounds there will be plenty of food vendors and of course there are rides for the kids.

It is always a fantastic, family friendly week-end so make sure you put this event in your diary as a must see/do.
