The Hot Rod & Custom Auto Expo will be held at Rosehill Racecourse on Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th May 2017.  With the need to occupy an additional building this year due to an excessive amount of entrant vehicles, and the record number of spectators through our gates, we can guarantee the 2017 Hot Rod & Custom Auto Expo will be one not to miss!!  We have an exciting line up of events planned, including a huge variety of Hot Rods, Customs, Low Riders, Bobbers, Muscle Cars, Custom Dragster bicycles  and more on display with plenty of trophy’s up for grabs for each category for those that like to complete.  We have secured ‘The Freestyle Kings’ Motor Cross Stunt Show again this year, as well as Air Brush Alley, DJ, Kids Entertainment, a “Hands-On” Traders Demonstration Area and much more!! Our aim is to provide a “something for everyone” event that caters for not only car enthusiasts but is a fun day out for the whole family!! We will be holding an additional event within our show this year called “Pinstriping Masters” and have invited some of the best pinstripers to showcase their talents and enter the chance to win the title of “Hot Rod & Custom Pinstriping Master” and other prizes up for grabs!!  There are a number of international special guests joining us at this year’s show. These include Charley Hutton, Jimmy Shine, ‘Crazy Painter’ Tom Kelly & Gene Winfield. We also have International Pin Up model ‘Sabina Kelley’ joining us again this year. We believe this International line up will draw a big crowd.
