Event Schedule

2019 entrants, vendors and public are able to download our entry forms by Late October each year.

The dates should be 24th - 27th January 2019.

Muscle Car Madness: This is an annual automotive excellence show, with exhibitors traveling on their pilgrimage, to display to the public their prized possessions. The exhibitors arrive at the Rangiora Show Grounds for the last weekend of January. It is a good idea to stay with your posessions, each year we have more security due to low lives stealing cool momentos, including entire roped off camping spots, stay with your kit please. We treat thieves to the law of the land.  

Live Bands all weekend. On display you may see Rats, Rods, Bikes, Trikes, Trucks, Racing Cars, Boats, and our favourite Muscle Cars as well as the Rockabilly Retro competitions. Take a look at the gallery later, we even have our own books, tee-shirts and huge TV and radio coverage. As well as the popular Burnout Pad. 2016 someone got married on the Burnout Pad. To each their own. And to our fans, we love you right back! Twenty Sevens years. For exhibitors, there is the annual Retro Rod Run, and other in-house entertainment. For the spectators we have the Retro Beauty Competition, and the Burnout Pad; which can be entered by anyone; just get in touch with us. We have bands all weekend long, and for more details on the spit roasts and cruising circuit take a look at the entry form.

Spectator viewing is only on the weekend: 26th to 27th January 2019 Saturday and Sunday from 10am - with the Burnouts starting at 10am (see link for scrutineering and get there way earlier if you want to enter your car). Whilst spectators can enter in the burnouts, if they pass scrutineering, they can expect a queue and if the car doesn't pass scrutineering, or we have too many, that's bad luck. Most competitions are open to guests, the public and the exhibitors. Costs to the burnouts, and the beauty pageant is simple gate entry. Not everyone is a winner, and some cars will not pass scrutineering. We always have too many eligible cars for the burnouts, so be early, exhibitors camping onsite will be favoured over random strangers but Marty's decision is final so be organised if you want to play on the Burnout Pad.

Questions: Craig is the yes or no man, and Marty is the Law. Corrina overseas the administration, Karen does the website stuff. Contact details, are on the contact page. Also view the local hire companies for contact details on caravans and motels. Book them now if you havent' already.

All exhibitors, vendors etc. please set up at your new positions from MARTY onsite, we have a change in the layout to suit noise control as per our agreement with the council to run the event each year. Camping will be designated to avoid loud noise affecting the neighbours after 10pm, check with Marty when registering, don't just set up where you used to. Camping is reserved for the sensible and the best dressed and it's first come, first served, if best dressed and if paid up. Motels are available, see our contact page for a few phone numbers. Stay with your stuff, or arrange security, this year people removed entire roped off areas. Not cool.

*  Vehicle Display Entrants who need a campsite; please enter no later than the 10th January in the bank or cash in the hand: $100 per person if on time, and in good condition. On and after Friday, the 11th till the 19th; we will charge an extra $20 per person late fee, when you turn up to be allocated your site. After the 20th of January, don't bother us; we are too busy with the people who respect us. See entry form PDF for rules, including catering details.


No animals. No alcohol, no glass - hope you understand what we are saying here, no fights, no thieves, no criminals.
*  Participants are responsible for their crew, noise and sobriety; see entry form, and burnout pad rules on the links above!
*  Camping onsite may be fully booked if you don't get in now. Don't moan out-loud.

All thieves and idiots - Security Guards will be on site 25/7 and have full power to confiscate and remove you or your possessions.

NO Animals.

Day passes: gone, thing of the past. Sorry.

Public hours are 10-5pm each day.

2018 the Day exhibiting entrants can still pay at the gate $18 per person - Vehicle is free if it's presentable. So don't cue up for an easy park, we get judgemental. Please have a deck chair and sunscreen handy. No animals.

Food and alcohol:

Each year we provide catered food for the exhibitors, see the entry form for details. Spectators have full access to all onsite vendors, which includes monitored licensed bars. The Club rooms have seats, tables, shade and water as well as a great selection of food and beverages. There will be coffee, and food vendors awaiting your tidy selves all around the grounds, so no excuses to be dehydrated nor hungry. The band shed is also a licensed premise, so we don’t want to see you bringing your alcohol in at all. This is a family event. No BYO. Don't litter, there are people with bare feet, don't be loud after 10pm. No fights, no angry dramas. This event will be policed, people will be arrested, make sure respect is shown and given. We also will have onsite medical facilities, still keep a mind on the weather, as it's pretty easy to get sunburnt when milling around outside all day. Be sensible, we are watching and judging.

Traffic congestion getting in on either Saturday or Sunday:

Second Chance displays for all last minute Harry's, and Burnout cars, may get waved on from main gate to allow traffic congestion to disperse, then the next Marshall may point you to the second gate for your vehicle if it is worthy, if, and only if; we deem your vehicle suitable. This is not acceptance to the Burnout pad, we have scrutineering for that. Exhibitors and entrants come early please, after 8am but before 10am, everyone else; after 10am. Early is after 8.00am. Don't think 1pm will cut it for any late exhibitors. That would be bad form! Public is 10am - 5pm Saturday and Sunday. Got it? Parking is always at a premium, it's outdoors and it's grass so sensible shoes. No dorks who turn up at stoopid hours. Security will deal with those people.


Bring a deck chair, and sunscreen as well as an umbrella and gumboots. It's normal for the temperature to hit over 30 degrees and soak you to the bone. Look up the forecast and do that slip on a sunscreen, slop on a hat?? Slip slop splosh? The splosh may be mud. Or splat?

Sensible sentencing:

Stay hydrated. Food and drink available on site, toilets etc. We had 1000 display vehicles on Saturday this year, and 800 on Sunday.

At our Mainland North Canterbury event, 99% of the entrants enjoyed and obeyed the minimal rules, we never need the 1%; so don’t bother coming. Keep any anti-socialite behaviour at home, NO DORKS, ever thanks. We must keep the neighbours happy, else we will not be allowed back. It's that simple. This will be our 27th year because we have a zero tolerance, intune with the law. And we always have both police and security teams patrolling.

NO BYO again - nice and simple, entrants are to remember that they must keep their liquid camping supplies at their campsite. Reasonably priced drinks are available to purchase on Friday and Saturday night. All alcohol to stay at campsites and no walking around the grounds drinking please. Dead simple - you fail - you get removed and we will keep your pink slips. ) Your vehicle needs to be a tidy ‘showable car’, no shit-boxes or Japanese contraptions, including vans and utes. Finished Japanese cars are welcome. Scrutineering is a must for all entrants to the burn out pad. To find out more take a read of the Burnout/sponsors page.

Public and entrants alike must behave, and show intelligence. The driver is liable for all their crew, passengers and rubbish and wat nots. However, the individual is liable for all their own illegal activity, whilst you are not your brothers keeper, you are morally obliged to be useful.

More info for onsite campers:

Coldstream Rd is not a race track and curfew is 10pm. Please report any misbehaviour to the police. See Marty when you register to find out where you are allowed to set up, it won't be along the hedge on Coldstream Road. The neighbours must be kept happy. No more stress for either them nor me thanks. Please understand and consider the team here. WE are the team.
