Record entries for Motorclassica 2011

RACV Motorclassica event organisers say they have received an overwhelming number of applications to be part of this years' Australian International Concours d'Elegance, with more than 200 from around Australia.

With a 40-per cent increase in applications from last years' event, Motorclassica 2011 will have a completely different look and feel to last year, whilst a number of exciting additions have been made to the program to increase the appeal even further.

Event Director and classic car enthusiast Paul Mathers said he was thrilled by the number of applications and was excited to have many more Vintage and Pre-War era exhibits on show.

"The 98 cars chosen so far to be on display consist of the beautiful, the spectacular and the unexpected."

The diversity and quality of entries received this year has ensured the event will be even bigger and better than 2010."

The annual event, which attracts car enthusiasts from all corners of the globe, will run from 21 – 23 October 2011 at Melbourne's Royal Exhibition Building and will bring together more than 100 of the world's rarest and most desirable classic, vintage and veteran cars.

One highlight of RACV Motorclassica 2011 will be a special celebration to mark 125 years of Mercedes-Benz. A large display of these well loved vehicles will be on show, including the oldest genuine Benz in Australia, an 1896 Velo.

The 50th birthday of the Jaguar XKE and the 60th anniversary of Porsche in Australia will also be celebrated. A parade of Porsches featuring the famous 935 "Moby Dick" and Derek Bell’s 1987 Le-Mans winning 962 will star on the Concours floor while up to 50 E-Types will gather at the Royal Exhibition Building forecourt.
