A NEW motoring event planned for Rockhampton and Gladstone from July 16-25 promises exciting activities across a wide spectrum of motor sports for both enthusiasts and visitors to Central Queensland.
Camco MotorMania CQ committee chairman Ian Loxton said the event had been two years in the planning and brought together 18 separate motor sport organisations in the two centres.
“Competitions and displays will include street sprints, rallying, off-roads, speedway, drags, motocross, enduro karts, show and shine expos, specialist swap and car boot sale and an extensive trade fair,” Ian said.
“There will be something for every
one so you don’t have to be a dedicated motor aficionado to come and enjoy. Visiting tourists will also find plenty to catch their interest here in Central Queensland.”
Capricorn Tourism chief executive officer Mary Carroll said her organisation was right behind the initiative.
“This is clearly another major event-tourism project for Central Queensland, which will add to the depth and diversity of the activity-based tourism industry here in CQ,” she said.
Mr Loxton and his committee already have plans for future expansion of the Camco MotorMania CQ over the next few years to include a Hall of Fame, which will honour the contribution of local and national motoring and motor sporting personalities. For further details, visit www.motormaniacq.com.au.
