Time trials on the Geelong Waterfront


The weekend of the 30th of November and 1st of December sees the return of Geelong Revival Motoring Festival to the Geelong Waterfront. A festival of all things auto, Geelong Revival will see vintage car displays, music and markets take over the Geelong waterfront precinct. But the biggest drawcard are the time trials held along Ritchie Boulevard with Eastern Beach and Corio Bay as the backdrop.



The best place to catch the action is on the grassed hill overlooking Eastern Beach. A natural grandstand, this park area provides plenty of space and an uninterrupted view of the vehicles as they race down Ritchie Boulevard and Eastern Beach Road vying for the title of fastest machine in the quarter mile sprint.



Entry into the festival and most of the course is free but if you want to get up close to the vehicles as they prepare to race VIP and Pit Passes are available for purchase from the event website.



Saturday will see contemporary cars and motorbikes compete for honours. On Sunday it's vintage and classic automobiles that tackle the straight. Over 300 vehicles have registered to race in this year's event so there will be plenty of racing to watch over the weekend. Racing will be held between 10am and 7pm.



There will also be over 500 vehicles to see in static displays along the waterfront precinct from The Pier all the way to Eastern Beach.
If you need a break from all the motor related action a market will be set up on the grass at Steampacket place with stalls selling auto and non-auto products.

Bands will be playing on a stage in Steampacket Place from midday on both days of the festival and licenced bars will be situated at points along the waterfront.

A Fashion on the Field competition will be held on Sunday with punters encouraged to dress up. The competition, like many of the cars on show, will have a vintage feel.
