Outta the Shed Car and Bike Show 2018

The once every two year, Outta the Shed Car and Bike Show is geared up to run this Easter Sunday at the Esperance Showgrounds.

Organisers went to Post Office Square on Saturday March 10 to collect registrations and promote the event, which starts at 9am on April 1.

Outta the Shed president Jodee Marsh said there would be a lot to do and see this year.

“We usually have a couple of thousand visitors come through the gates and we have about 170 cars and bikes to look at,” she said.

“So there’s a fair bit to see and a wide range of vehicles.

“The date has changed to Easter Sunday, April 1, to avoid clashing with the Race Wars in Albany.”

Ms Marsh said it was the fourth time they have held the show and said part of the proceeds would be donated to a local organisation, which was yet to be decided.

She said people had travelled from as far as Kalgoorlie, Perth and Albany to display their prize vehicles in previous years.

“There is a broad range of vehicles from the veterans right through to late model heavily modified cars and bikes.

“We are proud of our laid back show that has a relaxed vibe.

“Positive feedback from previous events has given us confidence to keep it simple and stick with our initial aim to get the vehicles out and on display without the pressure of competition to be the best and most expensive car or bike.

“We want to see anything of interest.”

Ms Marsh thanked the Esperance business community for their ongoing support.

At the last Car and Bike Show, in 2016, there were a total of 170 cars and more than 1000 spectators in attendance, which helped raise over $16,000.

Ms Marsh said $8,000 went to BlaizeAid to assist with recovery efforts from the 2015 November bushfires and $5,000 went to the Country Women’s Association to help people with motor neuron disease.

An additional $3,000 was donated to the Gibson Fire Brigade.

Ms Marsh said there would be a wide range of food and live music

The cost to display a vehicle is $10, and entry is $5 for adults and $2 for children under 16.
