Every year we kick Motorama off with a Mystery Cruise on the Saturday. The mystery cruise is a bit of fun before the weekend’s main event with a scavenger hunt designed to get us all to the final destination. 

Participation in the event is free and does not require registration.

Thank you to Bad Penny, one of our Sponsors for the Mystery Cruise!

The meeting place is along Moorhouse St in Morrinsville from 11:00AM, details for the scavenger hunt will be handed out before we leave the spot at 12:00PM. You will receive a sealed envelope containing details just in case you lose sight of others or if you get lost. While we wait for the departure time feel free to walk around, look at the cars and get to know everyone.

The total length of the cruise will be around 150km, we will ensure that there are petrol stations along the route. We will be leaving from Morrinsville and finish in Morrinsville. This cruise will take you around the Waikato and stop in at different points of interests, one sponsor for the event is Bad Penny Classic and Custom Services and we’ll definitely be stopping in there but who knows where else we will be taken! Fingers and toes crossed for sunshine.

To finish the event we will meet back at The Top Pub, in Morrinsville at 4:00PM for prizes, food, and drinks.

Meet here at 11:00AM

Finish here at 4:00PM


Need for Speed Movie Poster

Framed by an ex-partner for a murder he did not commit, Tobey Marshall, a financially struggling custom-car builder and street-racer, spends two years in jail thinking about one moment. Fresh out of prison he reacquires the fastest car his workshop ever built and sold, and seeks to enter a secretive and extremely high-stakes race known as The DeLeon. His purpose; redemption and revenge…”

Join us as we finish off Saturday with a drive-in movie down at the Morrinsville Recreation Grounds. This year our feature film will be Need For Speed (2014).

Each year we host a drive-in movie at the grounds of Motorama. The movie we select is always a car-related family-friendly feature so it’s a great night out for the whole family. On the night there are some food trucks to purchase food, otherwise bring your own to enjoy from your vehicle while the movie runs.

Gates for the movie will open at 6:00PM to allow time for people to get into the grounds, get to their parking spot, and get something to eat.

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. 

The movie will start once it gets dark, usually between 8:30PM and 9:00PM.
