Since the soggy days of June and July of last year, there’s been a myriad of tasks that the committee has had to attend to in its preparation for the 24th Hot Rod & Street Machine Spectacular.
As this is being written, twenty trade stands had been booked onto the floor, fifty three cars and motorcycles entered for display and five clubs registered in the Club Corral. Patrons had booked flights from interstate and the general tone was one of excitement, positive management and expanding growth.
Little did the WAHRP executive know that what started as a viral outbreak in an overseas food market in December 2019 would today lead to the decision to postpone the 2020 Spectacular.
With the concern for public health at the forefront, WAHRP has today begun work to reschedule the event to a date later in the year. It does so with reference to the on-coming flu season during the winter months, the advice from government and health authorities regarding COVID-19 and with great respect to the thousands of entrants, traders and patrons who will be impacted by this decision.
The 2020 show is not being cancelled. It will happen later in the year at the Claremont Showground but at a date yet to be confirmed.
In the meantime, entries remain open and the duration of the early entry fee has been extended.
Stay tuned and stay healthy.
