Motafrenz had a lovely spot under the trees near the Gate 1 entrance of the Yarra Glen racecourse, next to the Jaguars. This year’s European show was popular as ever with a strong showing of all types of vehicles from around Europe, even some cars from other continents turned up either they were lost or having an identity crisis. Lots of foot traffic made its way through our display. Present was an eclectic mix of vehicles just like members.
We had Nick with his Beetle, Alan and his Volvo, my Niki, Doug’s Mercedes, a potential member with their lovely mini, Jared with his tidy BMW and Rowan with his Range Rover taking up a space on its own, until Alistair later dropped in alongside with his blue Bentley.
There was something for everyone from early racing Bugattis to the latest Alpine, with everything in between. A tough choice but my favourite of the show would have been the Clio V6, never sold in Australia and all sorts of crazy with a V6 shoehorned in the back.
