SHEPPARTON was promoted as the motoring hub of Victoria at the weekend when Greater Shepparton City Council spruiked the region at the largest motoring event in Victoria, the Motorclassica in Melbourne.

Greater Shepparton City Council Manager Economic Development, Anthony Nicolaci said, “Going to the Motorclassica was all about profiling the region as a place for motoring.

“Council in partnership with Shepparton Motor Museum and Mitchell Shire had a stand promoting the heart of Victoria. Throughout the weekend the event gets about 20,000 people come through, so it provided a good opportunity to promote Shepparton as a great place to visit and entice people to check out the Shepparton Motor Museum and what the region has to offer.

“People were really impressed with the facilities we have catering to motoring enthusiasts here. We had some car clubs express interest in bringing their events and car clubs to Shepparton.

“We also had apples from Rocky Varapodio Orchards, which allowed us to showcase our fresh local produce. We also took along a Careful Cobber Car to give people a taste of our Shepparton Motor Museum.”
