Lawnton Truck Show
The inaugural and Piston Energy Drink Truck and Car Show N Shine held at the Lawnton Showgrounds in June was a perfect day out for truck and car enthusiasts. The day was blessed by blue skies with a rare warm winter sun providing plenty of reflections from the assortment of customised trucks and cars at the event.
Organiser Mick Hogg from OzTruckinTV made a great go of a first time event which proved a meeting ground for some of Queensland’s best looking trucks.
“For our first event we were very nervous,” Mick admits. “But I think we pulled it off and made an impression and it was a success.”
It was a first time event but Mick reckons it definitely won’t be the last and with one under the belt the second show will no doubt be even better.
“We are planning to make a show next year that all will want to attend,” he says.
“This year was put together in three months, we now have 12 months to work on the next show, and already we have decided to increase the number of trophy categories and are currently seeking to book entertainment as well,” he said.
Mick also went out of his way to thank everyone who came and supported the event. “I am very happy with the attendance and thank you to our sponsors Piston Energy Drink and Your Risk Advisor,” he said.
