LIVE RESTORA­TION AT MOTORCLASSICA

Unique Cars - - NEWS -

THE CEN­TRE­PIECE of Motorclassica’s ed­u­ca­tion theme is the stag­ing of its first Live Restora­tion The­atre at the 2018 event at Mel­bourne’s Royal Ex­hi­bi­tion Build­ing, 12-14 Oc­to­ber.

Now in its ninth year, Motorclassica prom­ises to be its most in­ter­ac­tive ever.

Ed­u­ca­tion has been brought to the fore for 2018 with the ad­di­tion of the Live Restora­tion The­atre, schools pro­gram and Fu­ture Lab fea­ture.

“With Motorclassica now es­tab­lished as the premier event of its type in Aus­tralia, we are con­stantly seek­ing ways to add new el­e­ments and ex­tra value for show go­ers,” Motorclassica Event Di­rec­tor Paul Mathers said.

“Given the event’s cred­i­bil­ity and unique sta­tus as the only an­nual au­to­mo­tive ex­hi­bi­tion of its type in the coun­try, we also felt that we have a re­spon­si­bil­ity to pass on the knowl­edge and ex­per­tise we have col­lec­tively gath­ered over many years, to the next gen­er­a­tion of mo­tor­ing en­thu­si­asts.

“Hence, we are again run­ning our Schools Pro­gram and have added the Fu­ture Lab, both of which aim to ex­cite and ed­u­cate young peo­ple about the emerg­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for re­ward­ing ca­reers and in­volve­ment in the grow­ing au­to­mo­tive and restora­tion in­dus­tries.

“Cen­tre­piece of our ed­u­ca­tion theme will be the Live Restora­tion The­atre which we an­tic­i­pate will be hugely pop­u­lar with 2018 show go­ers. We be­lieve it’s the first time some­thing like this has been done at a con­sumer event in Aus­tralia.”

Motorclassica’s Live Restora­tion The­atre fea­tures five work­shops in­side the Royal Ex­hi­bi­tion Build­ing, demon­strat­ing live, var­i­ous stages of the ve­hi­cle restora­tion process un­der the watch­ful eye of Greg Maskell of Shep­par­ton’s Maskell’s Cus­toms and Clas­sics, who said, “We want to en­ter­tain and ed­u­cate by ex­am­ple, so have a paint booth set up out­side the main build­ing."
