Restoration of the Year

A separate group of judges selects a winner in this class using their skills to determine the car that has been restored most accurately to its original specification.

Display Class

This class is for significant and unusual vehicles not usually seen on public roads; they are normally in pristine condition and represent a cross section of early Australian motoring. This class is not subject to the judging process and is not eligible for any award.

Spirit of Motorclassica Award

This award is chosen by the Chief Judge and is awarded to a car or bike that best represents the overall theme and concept of Motorclassica as the premier Australia Classic Car Show. This award winner is not accepted into the Best of Show judging.

People’s Choice Award

This award is taken from public votes cast at various stations around the exhibition centre and reflects the judgement of our fellow enthusiasts. This award winner is not accepted into the Best of Show judging.
