All Japan Day, SA

Wigley Reserve, 22 Colley Terrace, Glenelg

9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

All Japan Day is being held on the 24th and 25th February 2018 at Wigley Reserve in Glenelg.

Back in 2008, a core group of motoring enthusiasts realised that community-based events that enabled like-minded car lovers to catch up and chat about their cars were beginning to disappear as larger, more professional events grew in popularity. The solution? Create an event that was as simple and cheap to enter as possible, and give car owners the opportunity to show off their rides, regardless of how weird or wonderful they were. The resulting event was called 'All Japan Day', which now attracts over 500 cars each year from all over Australia, raising money for charity.

Gates for entrants and their vehicles to enter the event grounds will open at 7am each day and will be closed at 10am sharp. Vehicles must remain on the grounds between 10am and 3pm. This is for spectator safety and insurance reasons. Do not ask to leave early – you will be refused. This is a car show, not a car park. If you want to leave whenever you feel like, park on the street.

Killer Rides Live, NSW

Moss Vale Showgrounds, 16 Illawarra Highway, Moss Vale

7:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The 2nd Killer Rides Live show will be held August 11th and 12th 2018 at the Moss Vale Show Grounds in the picturesque NSW Southern Highlands.

Killer Rides Live was previously an indoor event which limited how many cars we could accept so we certainly don't have that issue anymore with the switch to an outdoor, two-day custom car festival. This will be a full-tilt motoring extravaganza featuring a huge show and shine, grass driving events, cruise the venue sessions, Club games, kids rides, a dual drive-in night on the grounds on Saturday night, a sound-off and much more.

There's no formal judging scheduled for Killer Rides Live. I feel the best trophy to win is one picked by your peers. That's why there is just a Top 20 which will be picked by other entrants. You all get one vote to pick your car of the show. The whole ideal around Killer Rides Live #2 is to have fun with cars. So we're making this a non-alcohol, family friendly event. We want everyone to come along and have a good time. Why not come and have a High-Performance, Highland Fling? Info Paul Beck 0432 795 336.
