Get your rigs ready for show

GRAB your cleaning rags, shine up your rigs and get them ready to be in the running to win the Best Truck Award.

That's one of the awards at the upcoming Annual Gold Coast Truck, Car and Bike Show next month.

While the show is held on both Saturday, August 11 and Sunday, August 12 all of the "everything on wheels” action is happening on the Sunday.

If you'd like to enter your truck, for trucks weighing 13 tonne and over, entry is free from 6am to 9am at the back of the Mugeeraba Showgrounds.

The trophy presentations, which will include awards like Best Kenworth, Best Western Star, Best Mack, Best Paint, Best Graphics and Best Bling, will be held just after noon.

There will also be cars, bikes and more on display too, as well as 4WDs and retro caravans.

Recreational clubs and charity groups will also be at the show.

Local cover band Follow the Fox will play on the centre stage, as well as Hyfidelity Dance.

Make sure to browse the auto industry trade, food and market stalls, relax at the licensed bar, the mechanical bull competition, giveaways and children's carnival rides.

Judging registrations open at 6am, vehicle registrations at 7.20am, rides open at 8am and performances start from 9.30am.

Bike and car presentations start at 1.30pm.

The first part of the show, held on the Saturday, will be a family day with a focus on retro cars, monster trucks and fireworks.
