Bordertown Spring Festival Motor Show set to be biggest yet

The Bordertown Vehicle Restorers Club (BVRC) has recently come together to host its first motor show committee meeting.

The meeting was held to ensure the Tatiara's 2019 automotive smorgasbord taking place at the Bordertown Spring Festival and Show on November 9 is the biggest and most colourful yet.

Working in conjunction with the dedicated Spring Festival team, BVRC committee member Steve Westmacott said they want keep up with the good work the festival committee do.

"The Spring Festival committee works so hard at putting on such a great local show and doing it on a shoe-string budget it sort of propels us (the BVRC) to try to keep up with them in making our motor show the very best it can be," Mr Westmacott said.

He also bullish about the number of entries for November's "automotive smorgasboard", stating they are looking to exceed previous years numbers.

"Usually attracting 80 to 90 entries, which include trucks, tractors, motorcycles and vintage caravans, as well as classic cars through the entire age of motoring - the BVRC is hopeful it can exceed that number in 2019," Mr Westmacott said.

"Our club is moving mountains this year to crack the ton."

Claiming SA as the "car show capital of Australia", Mr Westmacott said due to classic car shows taking place each week across the state, it's a credit that Bordertown can still attract so many entries.

Attendees are set to be treated at this year's motor show, with the theme set to showcase a number of high horsepower vehicles.

"The theme of this year's motor show is muscle cars and that means big V8s with even bigger horsepower, but there are still many trophies to be won for all manner of other automotive interests," Mr Westmacott said.

Last year's inaugural 'Rocker Cover Racing' will return bigger and better, featuring an even longer and improved racetrack.

"We encourage the kids to come and have a go at rocker cover racing" Mr Westmacott said.

Parents and care givers need have no concerns as the racers are built from light weight and blunt engine components that are fitted with wheels and use gravity to 'race' down an inclined track."
