We encourage everyone to be creative with their outdoor areas as the Hard Park is the central hub of the AutoFest and is generally packed with the most people.

  • Can I just turn up on the day with my bike since u got no spaces left ?
  • The OFFICIAL event layout for the 2018 AutoFest. There are a few noticeable changes this year with the first major change being the main point of entry. All spectators and competitors on event day are to come through GATE 0 (on Airport Road), this is to keep traffic flowing and to prevent any issues with traffic extending out to the main road. The next change is the spectator parking. Due to the increased number of foot traffic last year there is now a dedicated free public parking option where people can park up and walk in. There is also a $5 option for those that want to park closer to the action (All vehicles that come through the 'Main Entry' will be checked for alcohol). Outdoor entrants for the 2018 Luxxio Lowrider Super Show will enter through GATE 3 on event day and all indoor entrants will come through GATE 2 on pack-in day. The Mystery Creek Events Centre plays host to over 400 competitors ready to entertain thousands of car crazy fanatics. Save this image to your phone to keep it handy. The stage is set... see you there!!! #downtimenz #visithamilton #autofest2k18 Vehicle Imports Direct | Mai FM | The Rock | NZ Performance Car | NZV8 Magazine | Waikato Customs | Luxxio
