The Annual Autofest Series is all set to Celebrate its 23rd running within the upcoming 2015 / 2016 Event Season.

New to our event season are the inclusion of 3 Rockabilly lifestyle Festivals that have proved to be a real hit an these include the “Bonney and Clyde Rods, Rats and Rides” held at Wagga NSW and Tatura Vic as well as the “River City Rumble” that is staged at Murray Bridge SA.

These Festivals are dedicated to the PRE 1978 period and each feature Sealed KROOZE TRACK, 16 hours of BANDS, Blues, Rockabilly and Good Ole Rock N Roll Music, RODS, CLASSICS, RAT RODS , VENDORS, PERIOD FASHION AND MORE !!!!!

We kick off the season at Murray Bridge for the 2nd annual running of the “RIVER CITY RUMBLE” on September 12th & 13th 2015.

Next up is the inaugural Wagga NSW “BONNIE AND CLYDE RODS, RATS & RIDES” at the Wagga Showgrounds on October 24th & 25th 2015

We then return to Shepparton for the running of the ever popular Shepparton Springnats and with forward planning already well under way Entrants as well as Spectators are going to witness some new events and celebrations not seen at Shepparton for a very long time and of course the return of the Saturday afternoons STREET CRUISE that will be extended in length for 2015.

Mount Gambier Autofest proved that our efforts since taking over the running of this event 7 years ago were not in vain with many Entrants and Spectators travelling from afar to be part of this ever growing event and along with this was the increase of the quality of the cars with the Show Hall packed to capacity, so we look forward to seeing this again in 2016.

Bathurst Autofest was again a huge hit this season with over 500 entrants (357 driving and 148 Show only) this event is only going to get bigger but remember that we have said that we have a cut off of just 350 driving event
entrants so keep an eye out for the release of this year’s Entry Forms and get yourself booked in early. We believe that this event will become one of the must attend events on the Australian Motorsport calendar, in 2016 the dates are March 12th and 13th to coincide with the Victorian, South Australian and ACT Public Holiday. Also Note: this year accommodation was booked out well in advance so if you are planning to get to this event then you would be advised to get that sorted NOW!

Then we finish at Tatura at our Victorian leg of the  “BONNIE AND CLYDE RODS, RATS & RIDES” on April 9th & 10th 2016

So it’s time to get yourself, family and friends organised to book your accommodation and prep your ride for what is going be one of the best events seasons that we have ever seen but if you for some reason miss your chance at Shepparton then remember that you can always join in on the fun and games at either Mount Gambier, Tatura, Wagga, Murray Bridge or Bathurst.
