9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

The Australian Street Rod Federation in Victoria has decided to do something pro-active to support men’s health.

The historical handbrake on men's health has been to get the buggers to go for a check-up, so we decided to take the check-up facilities to where the guys are certain to congregate - a full-throttle blokes day out!

Our aim is to provide an environment where men have the opportunity to pro-actively address potential health issues face-to-face with the full spectrum of men’s health service providers. Show-quality hot rods have the ability to draw large crowds consisting of an extremely diverse cross-section of the community to any event. The ASRF will supply the hot rods - in the hundreds.

This is not just a car show, it’s much, much more. We are aiming high - Get blokes in the gate, give them a good day out, and potentially save lives.
