Shepparton Springnats 20th Anniversary

The 20th Anniversary celebrations of the Shepparton Valvoline Springnats are making a welcome return to the Shepparton Showgrounds on the traditional last weekend of November with this year confirmed dates being the 23rd to 25th November 2012.
This year promises to be bigger than ever for the famous Shepparton event with many inclusions to mark this milestone.

Now into its 20th year the Valvoline Springnats is Victoria’s LARGEST performance car festival that provides the true motor vehicle enthusiast with the opportunity to display their skills and vehicles against other enthusiasts in a safe, controlled and friendly environment.
The venue for the 2012 Springnats is the Shepparton Showgrounds which will again prove an ideal central location with its unique, ready-made paved areas suited to driving events and brand new indoor facilities that was very well received by both participants and spectators alike.

The Valvoline Springnats will again be all about admiring the best cars in the land including Street Machines, Hot Rods, Kustoms, Restored / Authentic as well as Imports and spending quality time with family and friends, whilst witnessing some of the most powerful cars compete side by side in Hi Octane Action Events such as Go To Whoa, Autokana, Indoor and Outdoor Show N Shine, Dyno Challenge, Autofest Corkscrew and everyone’s favourite the fiercely competitive Burnout Title.

The Valvoline Autofest Series includes, Springnats as well as our other events that have been held at Murray Bridge SA, Corowa NSW, Mount Gambier SA and our all new NSW event to be held each year in March at the Australian Mecca of Motorsport, Mount Panorama Bathurst. Autofest events attract 100’s of entrants and many thousand spectators over the weekends providing unique environments to compare and compete.

All our events are alcohol free and thus promote a true family atmosphere where spectators are able to enjoy the enthusiasm and excitement of a motor vehicle event in a friendly environment. This has been evidenced by the fact of strong crowd attendances consisting largely of families of all ages.

The Valvoline Autofest Series of events present themselves as fantastic marketing tools for companies to profile their products and/or services.

Additional information can be obtained by visiting our website at www.autofest.com.au
Or www.gasolinemag.com.au

If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact via email at springnats.autofest@bigpond.com or on 0417 511557.

Street Rods, Street Machines, Kustoms, Imports and Restored/Authentic are all welcomed and catered For!

Information update Valvoline Autofest Series:
Hi All,
pleases find attached entry forms and camping details for the 2012-2013 Autofest season. First thing most will notice is the change in pricing structure of the entry fees for each event, this has been done so that it is now up to the Entrant too decide what he or she wants to pay for rather than us the organisers to determine whether it be an event shirt or buddy passes so in other words you only get what you want to pay for.

As of August 1st Autofest Entrants will be able to fill in, pay and send Autofest Entry Forms online at www.autofest.com.au without the need to print out or posting them in that has been the norm for the last 20 years. This feature has taken some time to perfect and we have worked with the best to ensure that the transfer of your hard earned is done so safely and confidentially.
Also new for 2012-2013 is the way the Burnout event winners and place getters will be awarded and below is a sample of what we will be trialling this season and once successful this will be the way we will award all of our Burnout comps in the future.

SPRINGNATS BURNOUT MASTERS
King Of Springnats 4 Cyl/ Rotary 1st 2nd 3rd
King Of Springnats6 Cyl N/A CLASS 1st 2nd 3rd
King Of Springnats6 Cyl Pro Class 1st 2nd 3rd
King Of Springnats8 Cyl N/A Class 1st 2nd 3rd
King Of Springnats8 Cyl Pro Class 1st 2nd 3rd

CHAMPION OVERALL BURNOUT 1st

pretty cut last year i had only 1 attack at burnouts. it was starting to spit rain, then the car in front of me blew oil and the fire crew laid sand everywhere. i understand everyone had 1 chance and we were time pressed but as an entrant i was cut my 1 chance to rip skids legally all year was wasted. and unliek some others i wasn't doing heli's on the pad in the driving events. maybe if it rains again next year try to suspend the driving events (that i had 50 attempts at) and lay down more skids.

Now my car is no powerhouse but i just slid through the wet and rubber and oil it was pathetic. and i sat out of a few of the driving events when it got too sketchy out there. bring on the good weather 2013!

Also a reminder for the ones who have not entered the "Win a Ride" competition at our website to get in now so you do not miss your chance to ride Shotgun in one of the Team Extreme Weapons.

Press Release 15/11/2012


With just over one week before the staging of the 20th Anniversary Shepparton Valvoline Springnats we are proud to announce the following inclusions that will be part of making the 2012 event one of the best yet.

We kick of the weekend with a Display within the Maude Street Mall on Friday 23rd November from 12 midday till 2pm with some of the Heavy Hitters that will be seen in Action over the course of the weekend including the unveiling of Two Mechanical Monsters, one belonging to Mr Steve Nogas in his Camaro known as KillaB and the other is South Australia's own Mr Marcus Schwirse in his all new Holden VE Ute know as BLOWN and both have 1. never before been seen in this Region and 2. for the first time ever these Weapons will unleash around 3000Horsepower onto the Tarmac right here in Shepparton. Joining them also will be Legend John"Junior"Taverna, World Burnout Champs, Peter and Debbie Gray, Adam "Numnutz" Slorach as well as Shepparton's own Mr Perry Meka along with a couple of other surprises and the Valvoline Girls, so plan to spend your lunch time down at the Mall and make sure you come up and say high and grab an autograph at the same time.

Then it's down to the Shepparton Showgrounds where visitors will witness one of the best line ups of participating cars for quite a number of years with many travelling from near and far to be part of our 20th Springnats celebrations for the first time. With most of the Burnout "Big Guns" already entered, this year's Burnout Comp will be the Toughest ever held in Shepparton add to this the Shannons Showcar and Streetcar Masters Displays, that are also filling quickly and including cars on display that are also taking part for their first time at Shepparton.

Team Extreme are making a welcome return causing Mechanical Mayhem at their best as are those Crazy Drift guys from 2011 but we are also adding a couple of other demos for the crowd that includes the Just Car Insurance Double Drifting Duo’s Display where Pro-Series teams Insane Drifters & JAK Motorworks will be unleashing their sliding manoeuvres on the tarmac, showing how the pro drivers slide. These two drift teams compete nationally in the Australian Drifting GP and have been sliding for over 10years meaning that they’ll put on some great synchronised sliding. Make sure you check out the two teams sliding around Springnats this year and add to this the 51.Fifty Motor Bike Stunt Team from Queensland with their wild On Track Antics and the World Burnout Champs, Peter and Debbie Gray with their Side By Side Burnout Demos, this has got to be one of the biggest Horsepower Displays seen in this part of the Country Ever!

Valvoline as well as other Industry leaders will be onsite over the entire weekend to show you the latest in technology and product within their range and trade exhibits are also up so visitors as well as competitors just may hook themselves a bargain just in time for Christmas.
Model Holy Storm together with local photographer Dale Wright are giving Springnats Competitors to opportunity to have their car photographed with Holy over the weekend as well.



We have received support from Police and Council to reinstate the Sunday morning Supercruise so be up early and get your position on the Cruise route from 9.00am. The Supercruise leaves the Showgrounds along Archer Street the right into Wilmot Road, right into Wyndham Street, past the Lake foreshore and right into High Street to return to the Showground.
The GV Hotel and Jack Daniels are on board with us again and are offering a 10% on all drinks and meals over the Springnats. weekend.
Also onsite will be Tyres 2 You that are offering competitors tyre changing services along with tyre sales, Highway tyres will also be offering their new range of coloured tyres.
As part of the Springnats 20th Anniversary we have invited some of the stand out cars that have appeared at the Shepparton event over the past 20 years and the Mc Intosh centre will become known as the Legends Hall for the 2012 event.
We are looking after the younger ones with more rides and attractions than ever including the ever popular dodgem cars jumping castles and more.
We are still receiving enquiry's in regards to whether or not it is too late to enter for the weekend and answer is Yes you can still enter up until close of Scrutineering 2.00pm Saturday 24th November or online at our website www.autofest.com.au
