The Moto Expo Melbourne is Australia's largest Motorcycle Expo. Held at the Showgrounds in Melbourne, it is off the charts! With over 12,500sqm of exhibition space indoors plus an additional 15,000sqm of outdoor displays, activations and entertainment- our boys were like kids in a lolly shop- licking everything and paying for nothing! Needless to say, the boys gave 110% and delivered shows that will have the true motorcycle fans talking about it for years to come.
This years World Rally at Coff's saw the Showtime Entertainment Group bringing everything but the kitchen sink. With the FMX Team, our Toyota Rally Buggy and the massive Toyota Activation Truck at the party, we were busier than Santa at Christmas! It was such a privilege to be so involved in this first class event and we can't wait to be rolling up our sleeves and ripping in next year!
The Mullumbimby Agricultural Show is billed as the "Biggest Little Show" but there is nothing little about it. It's ability to entertain and educate is what has kept this show alive for 111 years! Robbie Marshall and Brad Burch kept that theme alive by "Educating" the fans on what big air really is and "Entertaining" by their continued passion to smash the crowds with their edge of your seat riding styles!
With the biggest party on the Gold Coast happening at the GC600, there was no way our riders were going to miss out. Motor sport fans at heart, its always extra special when the boys get to play on the track. By keeping the adrenaline-fuelled crowd pumped up between races, the boys got so high on the ramps, they were almost lost in all the high rises.
Our great relationship with Vodafone and the GC600 continued again this year and with Jamie Whincup as our Ambassador, it was next level. Kicking things off was the annual drivers parade with our very own Gary Ried, escorting the car's on a big fat Hog! The three day event was jam packed and the Vodafone Fan Zone was the place to be. With instant prizes up for grabs in our Vodafone Superfan's Shoot Out Challenge & Mini Golf zone or taking a break from the action in the Chill Out Zone. Loyal Customers could also take a ride in the Vodafone Speed Boat, or grab a photo on Jamie Whincup's Jet Ski.
This year's Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 was awesome! The Toyota truck got pole position @ Mt Panorama and the view was absolutely breathtaking. The weather threaten early, but the Toyota Truck was like Moses parting the Red Seas, as the clouds parted around the track. The extra cream on the cake was being able to be there and watch our very own Warren Luff make it to the podium again with a sizzling second place!
The Royal Melbourne show is being billed as the most unforgettable Melbourne Show yet! Running over 11 days, its up there in the stamina department, but time flies when your having fun! Just meant the boys had to pay extra attention during the morning "Synchronised Stretching" sessions. The crowds were huge, the jumps where high and the smiles were wide! Another Royal Melbourne Show done and dusted and the lads a froth'n' to get back into it again.
The beautifully unpredictable Melbourne weather was out in all its glory this weekend! Rain, Hail, Wind, Belting Sunshine- it had it all! Not to forget some heart-stopping racing for the start of the Enduro Season. This event is always special for the boys as they get to personally cheer on their work college Warren Luff, racing in the V8's. In fact, another Showtime FMX Stunt Driver found themselves there with Stunt Scotty putting on a show for the crowds as well!
