People's choice to find best vehicle

THE people will choose from 12 categories in both bikes and cars who will take home a trophy at the 4th annual Independent Riders Fraser Coast's Motors in May Show and Shine.

Independent Rider Julie Bellert said they were expecting a bigger show this year.

"We had more than 100 bikes and cars register to compete in the show," she said.

"I believe it's going to be much bigger, if the weather is kind."

Funds raised via donations and registration will go to the Fraser Coast Wildlife Sanctuary.

Over the last three years the group have raised thousands of dollars.

"We are seeing more cars competing in the show and I think that is due to our fundraising for charity with all our money going to where we say it is," Julie said.

"And we all like to show off our vehicles whether it be cars or bikes.

"Everyone is welcome."

Another drawcard to the event is the unique trophies.

"We have arguably the best trophies on the coast," Julie said.

"We make all our trophies ourselves from car and bike parts and polish them up."

Independent Riders Fraser Coast's Motors in May Show and Shine will be held at the Fraser Coast Wildlife Sanctuary, 31Mungar Rd, Maryborough West on Sunday, May 20.

The show will coincide with the markets.

Registration will be from 7.30-11.30am and cost $5 and votes will be counted at 12.30pm.

Cars will be numbered and visitors and competitors will be asked to make their choice from the six car categories and six bike categories.
