Meguiar’s MotorEx 15, Sydney Olympic Park, July 25-26, 2015

• Celebration of Meguiar’s 25 years in Australia will be a major feature of MotorEx Sydney 2015.

• Australia’s biggest and most prestigious indoor show is now bigger and better than ever. With 30,000sqm of indoor exhibition space (up from 22,000) and around 20,000sqm of outdoor display area. The reconfigured venue (incorporating a distinct show-precinct, two new pavilions and an additional stadium), has enabled MotorEx Sydney to grow to around 50,000sqm – a staggering increase in overall show area.

• A record number of 450 vehicles will be vying for a total of 70 awards and in excess of $100,000 in prize money.

• Each morning, spectators will be able to enter the generously sized Shannons Real Street Blvd and Recharge Zone, through the relocated entry gate, up to one hour prior to the main pavilions opening (i.e. MotorEx’s official start time).

George Barris, the King of Kustoms is on his way Down Under for Meguiar’s MotorEx 2015. Equally known as a movie car legend, this is the 89-year-old’s very first trip to Australia. George will be on hand for meet and greets along with limited signing sessions, as well as presenting the George Barris Award to his personal pick of the show.

• Movie Car Mania – the 30-strong display will be Australia’s biggest-ever gathering of everyone’s favourite TV and movie cars. Along with the tribute machines and faithful reproductions, will be several genuine examples used during filming.

Superstars

Meguiar’s Superstars will see Australia’s ultimate super-elite show vehicles take centre stage in the main Dome. With 40 of these unbelievable machines in attendance, Meguiar’s Superstars is by far Australia’s largest gathering of these incredible, best-of-the-best, show stoppers. Presentation of the new Meguiar’s Superstars Super Six (the top six cars of the show) and Meguiar’s Superstars Grand Master (the highest accolade on offer at MotorEx) will take place at 5:00pm Saturday afternoon on the main stage.

Street Elite

• Over 120 stunners have entered the ever-growing MotorMerch Street Elite Showcase. While finished to an extremely high level, these street machines, hot rods, custom cruisers, European exotica and high-tech tuners have been built with usability in mind – which is why it remains the fastest growing category at Meguiar’s MotorEx.

LM Perf Garage

• Liqui-Moly Performance Garage will not only be considerably larger in display area (covering some 11,600sqm), it will also feature more exhibitors than ever before including a broad range of industry leaders from the performance automotive aftermarket.

Muscle Car Marvel 02

• All up, Meguiar’s MotorEx Sydney 2015 will feature in excess of 100 traders.

• Australian Motorsport legend and Liqui-Moly brand ambassador, John Bowe, will be on hand across the weekend for meet and greets along with signing sessions.

• ColorSpec Muscle Car Marvel is open to both factory-style machinery as well as nominally-modified examples of beloved Australian and American muscle machinery.

FSR Inaguration

FreeStyle Rides Inauguration. Kicking off 11:00am Saturday in The Dome, the covers will come off 15 of the latest, never-before-seen blockbuster rides. Exclusive to Meguiar’s MotorEx, Inauguration is a hugely popular spectacle that never fails to attract considerable interest.

Pro Comp

• DesignerWraps ProComp is home to Australia’s toughest and wildest outlaw streeters along with all-out competition monsters that feature superb build quality.

• The Laurie Starling Excellence award is another exceptional addition for 2015. This stand-alone award is supported by a perpetual masterpiece billet trophy and $5000 cash prize. Laurie had a strong bias towards engineering and driveability, with the awarded vehicle (selected from the Superstars, Street Elite, or Pro Comp categories) reflecting those attributes.

• The Liqui-Moly Power Pit will host the Dyno Dynamics demonstrations, which will see a host of muscular machinery loaded onto a 1200hp Dynotech chassis dynamometer and pushed to their limit in a safe, controlled environment.

Real Street Blvd

Shannons Real Street Blvd is where you’ll find Sydney’s most attention-grabbing true streeters, with a completely different line-up on Saturday and Sunday.

Shannons, will have Motorsport legend, Jim Richards, on hand conducting two signing sessions on both Saturday and Sunday.

• Over the weekend, Shannons is giving away two hot lap outings with Jim Richards in his blisteringly-fast Porsche Carrera Cup racer. The two four-lap sessions are valued at $695 each and are part of the ‘Get a Quote’ from Shannons incentive.

• With the Wild Bunch area, a selection of Australian drag racing royalty, will thrill spectators across the weekend by firing up their quarter-mile-destroying 3000hp monsters all at once!

• Burnout Corral. Several of Australia’s toughest burnout weapons will be on hand along with the diverse characters that pilot them.

• House of Kolor in conjunction with Anest-Iwata will be carrying out airbrush demonstrations, with the aquatic-themed works of art being donated to the Westmead Children’s Hospital to decorate the hallways, to add some brightness to life of sick kids.
