“We are delighted to present the inaugural Gold Coast Motor Festival. It has been thoughtfully curated to enable the public to enjoy some of the most coveted dream cars, learn more about the latest in motor trends and innovations while enjoying a weekend with families and friends in the scenic Hong Kong Gold Coast precinct through the diverse two-day programme,” remarks Mr Robert Kaiwai, General Manager of Hong Kong Gold Coast.

The picturesque waterfront precinct has been transformed into various dynamic lifestyle and entertainment zones, each with a different motoring experience, in partnership with leading car brands including Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Pagani, Porsche, Volkswagen and more that will be opened for the public to enjoy the excitement of the festival.

Over 60 exquisite world-class classic and collector cars sourced from private collectors will be on display. The dazzling line-up includes La Ferrari, Porsche 918, Pagani Huayra BC, McLaren F1, Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing, Ferrari Daytona, Nissan R34 Z Tune, providing motoring aficionados with a rare and unmissable opportunity. The motor festival is also generously supported by the Aston Martin Owners Club, which will present over 17 prized Aston Martin collector cars dating from the 1950s to the present day.

The Gold Coast Motor Festival pays tribute to classic craftsmanship as well as technological innovation of the modern day. A panel of judges led by Chief Judge, Mr Joseph Fung, a veteran motor enthusiast, will select the crème de la crème among these rare gems for the following awards: Best Competition Hero, Best Collector’s Classic, Best American Muscle, Best Alternative Speedster, Best Dream Super Car, Best Collector’s Porsche, Best Collector’s Aston Martin and Best of Show Winner.

The diverse programme features a series of motor seminars hosted by motorsports figures, designers and automotive leaders, such as Prof C C Chan, widely known as the ‘Father of Asian Electric Vehicles’, Mr Darryl O’Young, Mr Lawrence Yu and Mr Douglas Young, to name a few, to inspire and empower the next generation of car enthusiasts with information and know-how while encouraging innovation.

There are also entertainment zones and activities for families to spend an action-packed weekend, ranging from live music performances to pro-racing simulator experiences, test driving zones by Audi, Porsche and Volkswagen, retail lifestyle zone and a UBS x MakerBay Electric Vehicle Lab.

Gold Coast Motor Festival is delighted to partner with renowned Japanese model car brand, Tomica, on a kids’ workshop and creative display in the Tomica Wonderland, where parents and children can together explore the motor fantasy world. Children will also be fascinated by the exhilarating ride by the waterfront on the special Gold Coast children’s mini train ride, Hong Kong’s first outdoor electric train designed for children.

To encourage sustainable development, a zone has been designated for an open-source vehicle display. UBS has partnered with social enterprise MakerBay and its team of primarily student designers and engineers at its Electric Vehicle Lab (EV Lab) to build a concept electric car.

In addition to showcasing some of the most sought-after collector cars, Gold Coast Motor Festival is raising funds for The Community Chest of Hong Kong, the Official Charity Partner. Donation boxes will be placed around the precinct, and a raffle draw with prizes amounting to over HK$350,000 will give every festival-goer a chance to win fabulous prizes. Proceeds from all sales of tickets will also be pledged to The Community Chest of Hong Kong with no deduction of administration costs.

“The timing could not have been more golden with Hong Kong welcoming more international and national tourists in the National Day Golden Week. Gold Coast Motor Festival is a new mega event for Hong Kong people and tourists to enjoy; we have put together a rich programme to give our visitors an unforgettable experience. There are seminars for motor aficionados to learn more about cars; there are entertainment and activities for families to spend a weekend here. It is a fun-filled festival for all, there is something for everyone. It is great for the motor industry, great for tourism, great for Hong Kong,” concludes Mr Kaiwai.

Exquisite world-class classic and collector cars will be on display at Gold Coast Motor Festival.
