Forbes Motor Show takes it up a gear | Photos

Despite the hot and windy weather the annual motor show was a great success, drawing in a large crowd.

The 2019 Forbes Motor Show, which also celebrated its tenth birthday on Sunday, saw around 200 entries across cars, trucks and bikes lined up on Grinsted and South Circle Ovals.

The show attracted motor enthusiasts from around the region and interstate.

President of the Forbes Motor Show's organising committee, Ian 'Bart' Bartholomaeus, said they had around 200 entries in the motor show, with over 100 entered as displays which was on par with last year.

He said the truck entries were outstanding again this year, and the three cars from the TCM Racing Series attracted a lot of attention.

Along with the wide variety of vehicles on display, the SES hosted a demonstration of a car crash rescue.

Bart said the motor show was an overall success and they are happy with how the day went.

The Motor Show Committee presented several awards to recognise the hard work entrants put into their vehicles.
