On Saturday, March 7, motor clubs as far afield as Port Macquarie, Tamworth and Gunnedah, as well as clubs right across the Hunter Region and Sydney, will come together at Myall Sports Oval, Hawks Nest.

“This is a wonderful and interesting day, where car enthusiasts display their treasured veteran, vintage, classic and unique vehicles and motorcycles, which are all in pristine condition,”   Tea Gardens Hawks Nest Motor Club’s secretary Phil Hoare said.

“It has become a popular event for the Tea Gardens Hawks Nest locality,” he said.

Vehicles are expected to start arriving from 8.30am with the official program starting at 10am.

Motorfest will be opened by deputy mayor, Len Roberts.

In past years more than 300 vehicles and motorcycles have attended Motorfest.

Tea Gardens Hawks Nest Motor Club’s organising committee is already indicating that responses to Motorfest 2015 will see similar numbers of vehicles attending.Motorfest 2015

The club has also invited the NRMA Vintage Fleet to attend but are still awaiting their response.

Again in 2015 the Sydney Sports Ground Speedway cars and dirt track bikes will make appearances.

The local fire brigade, ambulance service and surf life saving club will be on site to display their latest vehicles and equipment with the Police Area Command at Raymond Terrace also displaying their vehicles.

The Red Cross ladies will be present to ensure that cups of tea, coffee and home-made cakes, biscuits and scones are available and the Rural Bush Fire Brigade will cater for hungry visitors with their sausage sizzle and barbeque.

The surf club will again provide and serve cold drinks.

Under cover seating will  be available for those visitors who wish to rest and enjoy the day.

Entertainment will be provided by well-known local band “Driftwood” and the Australian Army Pipes and Drums Band.

The Motor Club wishes to thank the generous support of the local business and sponsors and the NRMA who will again sponsor the trophies.

The winners of the major raffle prizes will be announced at 1pm and the vehicle category awards will be announced at 2pm.

The Club would also like to thank the MC for event, Terry Munright, who has supported the club in this role for many years.

Motorfest 2015 is a Community Aid Event Day and this year is supporting Tea Gardens Hawks Nest Surf Life Saving Club, local NSW Rural Fire Services at Tea Gardens and Pindimar and the community bus.
