Ford and Holden rivalry will heat up the show's main arena

THE rivalry has always been intense between Ford and Holden enthusiasts and it is about to get even stronger as they take to the showgrounds for the Trackskill V8 Ute Show.

Held in the main arena at the Fraser Coast Show on Friday and Saturday, this is definitely a spectacle that will get the heart racing.

Holden driver Gary Paxter said the competition between Ford and Holden enthusiasts would be made very clear when he and Ford driver Matt Luke hit the arena.

"That is what it is all about, seeing who comes out victorious at the end," he said.

"This is a show that draws crowds back again and again because it is loud, exciting and definitely fast-paced.

"A major drawcard for the show is also the fact that we pull Ford and Holden fans from the audience to not just passenger in the vehicles but to drive them, which is an experience not to be missed."

Gary is a man who knows his Holdens.

He is currently third in the V8 Ute Series Championships and Matt is an international drifter who has competed all around the world.

Sponsored by Fraser Coast Motor Centre, shows are held Friday at 11.30am, 4.30pm and 7.30pm, Saturday at noon, 6pm and at 7.30pm.

Raffle tickets will be on sale during the show (one each day) located in the main pavilion and sold by the Miss Showgirl Winner for 2013 with the prize being a ride in the ute of your choice on the last performance of the evening.
