Morrinsville Motorama FAQs

  • Is Morrinsville Motorama 2022 still going ahead?
    Unfortunately due to the change to the Covid-19 Red Alert setting, and the uncertainty around the length of time we will be at this setting, we have decided to cancel Motorama 2022. We will pick up again in 2023, 11th - 12th February.
  • What is the entry fee for the event?
    Participation in the Car Cruise on Saturday is free. The drive-in movie is $25 per car and includes entry for all passengers. The breakdown for Saturday is as follows:
    • $5 per show car (includes passengers)
    • $10 per public car (this is for on-site parking only and includes all passengers)
    • $5 per person (these are for walk-ins at the gate)
    Due to the location of the grounds we highly recommend using the on-site parking we provide as parking off-site will be minimal.
  • How much is entry for Trucks and Motorbikes?
    Entry is free for trucks and motorbikes. Trucks are welcome to the drive-in movie, access, however, will be by appointment only from 6:00PM-8:00PM. Trucks onsite by this time can remain on site until morning.
  • Can I bring my dog with me?
    Dogs are allowed at the event, however, we ask that they are not left in vehicles as it gets incredibly hot in the sumer, kept on leash and you are mindful of where your dog is leave their waste. Please pick up after them.
  • Will there be on-site parking?
    There is on-site parking available for public entry. The entry fee for this is $10 and includes the driver and all passengers in the vehicle. We strongly recommend using the parking we provide as you'll have quick access to the event and it'll be much cheaper than paying $5 per person.

  • We're part of a group, can we park together?
    There will be a small area in the gate for groups to gather before entering into the staging area, this is a small space so you will not be able to wait there long. We suggest arriving together and using the area to re-group before being parked.
  • What prizes are there on Sunday?
    We will have various spot prizes throughout the day so keep an ear out for those. There are prizes at the end of the day for The Top 5 Cars, Best Truck, and Best Bike. There is also an all-new prize this year for Best Custom Van.
  • What is the truck convoy?
    Before the main show on Sunday the truckies do a Cruise Through Town before entering the grounds at 10:00AM. The convoy starts at 10:00AM, the route will be announced at a later date. If you would like to join the convoy and participate in the parade please meet on Sunday 9th February by 9:30AM on Anderson St, Morrinsville facing towards the East, you can have trailers attached.
  • Where do we meet for the Mystery Cruise?
    We meet along Moorhouse St in front of the police station from 11:00am and the cruise starts at 12:00pm. This gives people enough time to get there, meet new people, and look at the cars. The cruise is around 150km long, and meets back at the Top Pub at 4:00pm for food, drinks, and prizes.
  • What time does the drive-in movie start?
    The gates for the drive-in movie open at 6:00pm to give people enough time to get into the grounds. The movie will start once it begins to get dark, usually some time between 8:30-9:00pm.
