Meguiar’s MotorEx, to be held at the Melbourne Showgrounds on 11-12 May, says it will showcase the best the automotive aftermarket industry has to offer, along with some of the country’s “finest” show cars and performance machinery.
The event is also expected to feature drifting demonstrations, dyno sessions, automotive celebrities, gourmet food vendors and live music, as well as a new initiative, the VCM MotorEx Seminar Series, where a group of industry experts will present a variety of topics in 12 sessions.
In addition, Flying Spanners – an initiative of Summernats/MotorEx – will pit teams of apprentice mechanics from TAFE and other training providers against each other and the clock as they strip and rebuild an engine.
“The skill and passion of automotive technicians and the aftermarket industry underpins events like MotorEx and Summernats. Our events are unique platforms to contribute to foster the future of the industry,” said Andy Lopez, MotorEx and Summernats co-owner.
To further attract and inspire the next generation of automotive technicians, MotorEx says it will offer automotive trade apprentices half price entry to the event using the promotional code ‘APPRENTICE’.
