Toodyay Car and Motorcycle Show

The fifth annual Car and Motorcycle Show promised to be bigger than ever and last weekend's event did not disappoint.

Held at the Toodyay Agricultural Showgrounds, the weekend event, proudly presented by the Toodyay Car and Motorcycle Association, attracted car and motorcycle enthusiasts from across the country with over 1,500 spectators and entrants descending on the Avon area.

Toodyay Car and Motorcycle Show Vice-President, Julian Ford, said sponsorship was vital to growing the event.

"Since our humble beginnings, our small event has grown in size and popularity to become one of Toodyay’s premier annual events. It’s thanks to sponsors that have enabled this growth,” said Julian.

The Show included a local four-piece band, a live auction, presentation of trophies for various car and motorcycle categories, a bucking bike, a bouncy castle and other attractions including a motorcycle stunt display and active vehicular related displays for attendees.

Our Toodyay and District Community Bank® branch  was the naming rights of the event’s main attraction – the Bendigo Bank One10 Mini Motocross Freestyle Show.

Branch Manager, Kirsten Barrack, said the Toodyay Car and Motorcycle Show takes advantage of Toodyay’s proximity to Perth attracting regular weekend visitors.

“We support a great number of local community groups, organisations and festival events. We recognize Toodyay’s growing popularity as a weekend destination and are keen to promote and provide our support where ever possible.

“It’s from the collective efforts of the entire community that ensures events like this prosper and businesses likewise reap the benefits,” said Kirsten.

The Toodyay Car and Motorcycle Show gives entrants and spectators the opportunity to view some of the best two and four-wheeled vehicles from Perth and the Western Australian Wheatbelt region. As a not-for-profit organisation, all proceeds from the Show are distributed locally with the Mens’ Shed and Toodyay Football Club just two of the many beneficiaries.
