Vehicle Movement & Exit Rules

  • Due to public safety regulations set by the Redland City Council, once you park your vehicle, you must keep it stationary.
  • To depart the show, you can only leave "on the hour" from 3pm, at either 3pm, 4pm or 5pm, following the directions of our marshals.
  • Restricting the vehicle movement to "on the hour" greatly reduces the risk of any potential accident between a vehicle and a pedestrian.
  • Of course, we prefer that all vehicles remain stationary for the entire show, but we understand some people may have a reason why they cannot remain until 5pm. As show organisers, we intend to cooperate with the Council guidelines in order to bring you a safe and well-organised event.

Trophy Presentation

  • The selection of trophy recipients at the Hot Rod Show is fast paced and informal.
  • The vehicles in each category are chosen who most represent the D.I.Y. spirit of Kustom Kulture. 
  • You don’t need to be on display both days to enter for a trophy, entries are accepted for both days.
  • If you aren’t there on Sunday to receive your trophy, we will contact you.
