Meguiar’s MotorEx, one of Australia’s biggest and best car shows, is returning to the Melbourne Showgrounds on May 26-27th.

Last year we thoroughly enjoyed our time here and this year boasts even more high-octane fun on display, so we’re keen to see what is in store for 2018.

The showgrounds provide plenty of space for the activities and events of the weekend, but rest assured that with over 500 of Australia’s finest vehicles on show, nothing will be left untouched! There is something for everyone no matter what you’re into.

There will be freestyle motocross, custom ‘v-rod’ motorcycles, an all-day dyno, a burnout comp and 4×4 rides – but what we’re most excited for is the drift demo featuring Jake Jones, Beau Yates, Matt Russell and Nigel Petrie!

We will be riding along with Jake Jones in his absolutely mental RB-powered M3 which is sure to put on a show.

For those coming from around Victoria or road trippers interstate, MotorEx offers a unique and very cool opportunity for parking at the venue.

Head in with your street car, and for $60 they’ll actually let you bring it into the venue and you’ll even receive a MotorEx Entrant shirt! Next time we head down we’d love to bring WTF86 along for everyone to see.

Other than all the amazing cars and top tier skill on display there will also be many traders from the US coming to show off their products and crazy builds. Many of these cars were either shown at SEMA or inspired by the builds there.

American automobile designer and star of the hit show Overhaulin, Chip Foose, along with Aussie AFL Legend Barry Hall and a few of his footy mates, will be bringing along their favourite rides.

So whether you’re coming to meet a celebrity or just to see some insane import and domestic cars, MotorEx is for you! Head on over to the MotorEx website to get your tickets for the weekend!

We will be covering the event so keep an eye out for our galleries.
