The best day you will ever have with your car.

  • Australia’s longest running car show to continue
  • Single day event
  • $50 early bird entry fee
  • Over six hours of cruising

Australia’s longest running car show will continue in 2017 with Motorvation 31 set down for January 21.

A one day format and a massive reduction in entry fees are the big news in a year of change for the venue. During the off season, Perth Motorplex made a massive operational transition to management by VenuesWest and the resources were simply not there to conduct the event in its traditional three day form this season.

But rather than shelve the event for a year, it was decided to save the 2017 edition by continuing in a one day form, offering competitors maximum cruising for a rock bottom price.

The new schedule will make for as entertaining a day as possible for both entrants and spectators, fitting in everything that makes Motorvation great. It will all start from 6am when traders and entrants will be able to come into the venue and set up, before cruising begins at 10am. Instead of limited Super Cruises on the long route through the drag strip and return road throughout the day as in past years, cruising will be open practically non-stop until 4pm, alternating between MV Muscle Cruise, Super Cruise and Smooth Cruise, providing opportunities aplenty for any style of driving – from family friendly to more ‘spirited’ tyre spinning adventures.
From 4pm general cruising will be limited to the pits as the Megaskid competition begins, though there will be one more opportunity to Smooth Cruise in front of the crowd before the awesome KFC Burnouts begin from 5.30pm.

Changes have been made to the show part of Motorvation 31, with the Elite Pavilion being rested for 2017, but there will still be a judged Show and Shine as well as the Audio Precision Sound Off and Miss Motorvation across the event, making for an atmosphere-filled venue.

CAMPING – Only Friday Night

Please note there is no camping on Saturday night. Camping with your car is an integral part of Motorvation for many entrants and is something we all look forward to every year. If you do want to camp, let us know on your entry form. All entrants wishing to camp must have the appropriate arm band to stay overnight. Something to bear in mind is that entrant campers are responsible for those they purchased buddy camping passes for. So if they play up, it could be you who gets evicted. For anyone who has already entered Motorvation 31 presented by KFC but wants to add camping, email with the request and credit card details.

ENTRY VENUE ACCESS FRIDAY / FRIDAY NIGHT – Entrants and pre-purchased buddy camping passes will be allowed onto the venue for Friday’s set-up day. Anyone who is not an entrant, or does not have a buddy camping pass will be charged $10 to enter on Friday’s set-up day (until 10pm Friday). After 10pm Friday, only camping armband holders may stay on the venue.

BAY ALLOCATION – If you’re planning on displaying with a friend or a group it’s important that you note this on your entry form under the space for ‘Club/Group I will be displaying with’ – if you don’t, you may well end up on different side of our very large pit paddock.
