Online entry for Australia’s first national motoring and motorsport festival – CARnival – is now open at www.camscarnival.com.au
Held in Echuca-Moama on the Murray River over the October 2-3 weekend this year, CARnival will see up to 2,000 vehicles of all makes, models and ages gather to take part in more than 30 competitive and non-competitive motoring activities.
These will range from huge static club displays to motorkhanas and speed events on both tarmac and unsealed surfaces. And while CARnival is a CAMS initiative to foster grass-roots motorsport, all clubs and enthusiasts are welcome.
Registration for CARnival will cost entrants $35 inc GST, for which they will receive a ‘CARnival Kit’ containing discount vouchers to many local restaurants, cafes and attractions, plus free entry into a number of special CARnival events.
These include a Motorsport Film, Photo and Art Festival featuring historic racing films and an exhibition of the works of well-known motorsport cartoonist John ‘Stonie’ Stoneham, entry to the CARnival Swap Meet and CARnival Village and a fun Observation Touring event for car club members.
A wide range of other non-competitive and competitive CARnival events staged on both tarmac and unsealed surfaces can be entered online, with prices for different daily and weekend activities starting at just $30.
The major activity of CARnival will be the Shannons Show ‘n Shine in Echuca’s picturesque Aquatic Reserve on the banks of the Murray River.
Motorkhana enthusiasts have the opportunity to tackle 20 separate timed events on both tarmac and grass for a fee of $50 per individual discipline, while entry in the five-stage Rallysprint will cost $100. Entry fees for the entire weekend is capped at $195 including registration and GST, with competitors able to drive in more than 50 timed events plus a 250km Navigation Trial and a Fuel Economy Test.
