Our charity this year is The Geelong Museum of Motoring + Industry www.gmom.com.au and we hope you can all get a chance to support this great local community project.



The Geelong Revival Motoring Festival brings over 500 cars and motorbikes to show to over 40,000 visitors on Geelong’s Waterfront for the festival that is rapidly becoming Australia’s largest historic motoring event. Be part of this huge motoring festival by showing your car and go in the running for prizes and trophies. Most car shows are designed for certain car scenes. It is uncommon to see classic, modern, performance, European and domestic vehicles at the one event.
The Geelong Revival Motoring Festival has united the automotive community by inviting all kinds of vehicles to be displayed in the Shannons Classic Motorshow – including yours!
