The 2019 exhibitor list will be available mid-2019. However in the meantime feel free to check out the full list of 2018 exhibitors here.

We'd love the opportunity to showcase your brand to the Motorclassica community. To find out more about exhibiting at Motorclassica, click here.

If you wish to become an award winning Concours d'Elegance entrant then click here for more information.

Tour Classica will be running from Thursday 10th October 2019. Check back here mid-2019 to find out further information.

Please check back closer to mid-2019 for further information on how to participate in Club Sandwich or which clubs will be on display in 2019.

Have you ever wondered how a car or motorcycle gets to that award winning Concours standard? Then you are luck! We have teamed up with Maskells Customs & Classics to showcase their talents in 5 stages of restoration. 2018 was the first time in Motorclassica history that we had anything like this on display and it was a huge hit, check back next year to see what we have in store next. 

Much like the rest of the world changing through the digital and technology trends, the automotive industry is also changing. Here at Motorclassica we understand that we need to embrace what the future holds for this industry. Check back here in 2019 to see what universities, TAFEs and RTOs we will have on display. 

This is your chance to get up close and personal with our special guests on stage. Our stage presentations are informative on a wide range of topics. Check back later this year to see who will be gracing our stages next. 

Going to the drive ins and watching a movie from your car is a classic past time. These days the cars used in movies are as much as the movie star as the actors themselves. Check back later this year to see what movies we will be showing on the big screen.

The children are our future! Our Schools Program has been running for two years now. Since inception we have brought in over 260 children between the ages of 12-16 where they are still at that impressible stage in their life. Hosting a Friday school's excursion at Motorclassica opens the opportunity for these teens to ask the right questions and see if the automotive industry is for them. We will be taking expressions of interest for 2019 schools early next year. Check back at a closer date for further information.
