A visit to Motorexpo 2016
Motorexpo 2016 is a mixed show for people that enjoy cars, boats and bikes. It’s on in Melbourne right now and we went and had a look around.
WHAT EXACTLY IS a Motorexpo? We turned up on the Friday night to find out, and on walking up the stairs discovered a lot of kart displays as the event is also co-run with the Oz Karting Expo. Every part of the sport is represented, from builders and services to tracks, so, if karting is your interest, the top floor is the place to be.
On the ground floor there were displays of racing and classic cars, sort of like a Motorclassica-lite in some respects, plus quite a few motorcycles and some raceboats. There were also new cars on display, most notably Mercedes-Benz with an official factory representation, displaying some new cars not even launched here.
Things to do – a racing simulator (rFactor), radio-controlled cars, and of course just wandering around and admiring everything from beautifully restored classics to GT3 cars fresh off the track.
As a guide to time, we were in and out within two hours after a good look around, a bite to eat and a chat with a few people here and there. Admission is $30 per adult (15 plus), families $70.
