A day at the drive in
Have you got a car or motorbike that is also a movie star? Enter it in our new ‘movie-themed’ category for a chance to win a trophy!
We know there are a number of people out there who own vehicles related to a movie from a past era. We also want entrants to have a bit of fun and dress in theme to complement their car or bike.
So this year there will be a judging category dedicated to:
- Best ‘movie-themed’ vehicle
- Best movie-themed’ costume
Internationally renowned motorcycle designers – Ken and Barry Horner – join 2023 show
There are few motorcycle enthusiasts who wouldn’t be familiar with the iconic Irving Vincent Racers.
First designed by Kiwi visionary John Britten prior to his untimely death in 1995, the bikes have continued to be manufactured by Australian brothers Ken and Barry Horner for the past two decades in their Melbourne factory.
The brothers have built an international reputation for their meticulous design and engineering of the Irving Vincent solo and side car racing machinery – and have enjoyed great success for their efforts.
Ken and Barry – along with a collection of their bikes – will feature at this year’s show!
The first Irving Vincent Racer was in fact a sidecar. Then came the first Irving Vincent solo racer, the first of a series of eighteen such bikes entirely manufactured by KHE, a carburetted 1300cc machine which the Horners debuted in the Post-Classic Period 4 (1963-72 inclusive) class at the Island Classic at Phillip Island in January 2007.

Glorious Las Vegas 1969 Camaro
Check out this immaculately restored 1969 Camaro, which was purchased out of Las Vegas!
The car was shipped from the USA to Queensland, Australia in 20023 after being bought by well-known Australian racing-car engine builder Ed Luttrell. Ed had spent time working for Stone Brothers Racing – an Australian motor racing team who competed in the International V8 Supercars Championship between 1998 and 2012.
Ed stripped the car back to bare metal and undertook a complete restoration, fitting it out with one if his hand built 350 small block chevy engines. All suspension was completed by fellow friend and racing competitor, Mark King from King Springs in Queensland.
The only non-original modification was the installation of an Australian dashboard (kph instead of mph).
In 2009, Ed sold it to local Devonport boy Adam Gowans, who has loved it ever since!
Come and check her out at this year’s show!
Supporting local charities as you enter our gate!
The SeaRoad Devonport Motor Show is the biggest motor show in Tasmania – you won’t see a better range of vehicles anywhere else in the State! AND – patrons, you enter our event knowing that your admission fee is going directly to charity – to improve the lives of others less fortunate than us – so well done you! With that in mind, our entry fees will remain the same for the 2023 show.
Children under 16: Free
Student card holders: Free
Adult ticket prices: Remain at $15
This event is run by members and friends of the Rotary Club of Devonport North who are all volunteers, hence the gate takings (after direct costs are deducted) go to worthy charities.
Not just a car show!
The SeaRoad Devonport Motor show is not just for cars!
Do you have a motorbike or (pre-1990s) truck gathering dust in your garage? Enter it for a chance to win a trophy in our motorcycle and truck categories!
