This is my post in reply to another thread written on the Friday night of the show.
I went tonight and it was a bit underdone. Put it this way, I wouldn't travel hundreds of K's or break any hot dates especially to go to it but If you're already in Melbourne and you've got nothing else on it's worth a look
There were some good things there. The Harrop Engineering stand was interesting from a technical viewpoint, the karting association, the Formula Vee and historics crowd were there too. In terms of information resources for beginning in motorsport it was well represented.
Representation from Ford was pretty average, just DJR and Allan Moffat was there flogging memorabillia and displaying his Mustang (One VERY HORNY looking car).
There were other historic cars there as well including Jack Brabham's '66 Repco-Brabham car, Bob Jane's Camaro (Another very sexy car) and an XAGT Phase 4 which was awsome.
As I said, it was a bit underdone but remember, it is an inaugural event which hopefully will become bigger and better next year.
