Ekiden Day 2015

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.

EKIDEN DAY 2015

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.

Date: Sunday 25th October
Location: Toyota Altona Manufacturing Plant.
