Save the date Toyota fans.
The annual All Toyota Winterfest car show is back and this year is set to be a special event.
In the final year of Toyota production in Australia we have been granted permission to hold the only ever Public Event at the Toyota Manufactuing Plant in Altona for a special one off show for all fans and owners of Toyota and Lexus vehicles.
Held in the staff carpark it will be our opportunity to pay tribute to all of the craftmenship that has gone on behind closed doors and give the workers an opportunity to see the legacy that will continue to be kept alive for many years to come.
This years show will revert to the original format of a static car show for any Toyota or Lexus vehicle.
Entry is between 10AM – 11AM.
Enter with a note donation to the Childrens Protection Society – 100% of entries go to charity.
Vehicles are locked in until 2PM.
Spectating is free and there is a large carpark available on site.
The Toyota Car Club of Australia VIC would like to invite members to display their Toyota or Lexus vehicle at Toyota’s family day, known as “Ekiden Day” this Sunday the 25th October.
Our close relationship with Toyota Australia has seen them ask our club to organise a Car Show and Motorkhana display (with free passenger rides) at the Altona Manufacturing Plant. Alongside the activities and food organised by Toyota themselves it is sure to be a fun day for all who attend. You will also have the opportunity to go on a guided tour of the factory before it ceases operation in 2016. This may well be the last opportunity for members to see the plant while it is still in use.
This is a FREE event for club members.
