None could have anticipated the iconic event the Victorian Hot Rod Show would become.

Synonymous with Carlton's Royal Exhibition Building for 55 years,  the Covid 19 pandemic caused the breaking of this

Australia Day long-weekend tradition.

The Victorian Hot Rod Show will return

new location, new dates, new format

VHRA history will continue
