This year we are expecting top level Pro Class cars from USA, UK, NZ, Japan and of course Australia.

Rod will take the car for some full noise demonstration laps during the Midday Mayhem and when not on track, the car will be on display in a specially designated area so you will have a chance to get up close and personal with this legendary machine and the man himself.
