The first annual Silverwater Motor Festival went like a treat with 55 competition motorcycles, 44 classic and custom cars and lots of low key motoring fun. Crowd behavior was excellent. Sponsors seemed happy and the crowd seemed to enjoy the mix of motorcycles and cars. The bands were lively and crowd safety officers and police had nothing to do other than look at the motorcycles and cars or pose for the occasional photo.

Motorcycle clubs were well represented by Bikers Australia, Diggers Military Club, the BSA Club, the United Motorcycle Council and Southern Cross Cruisers. Car clubs included the Torana Club and the Coastal Customs along with the occasional hot rod, mustang and other classic cars.

Many thanks to the the UMC member organisations who attended and to Ferret who came to be interviewed by Jonesy from WSFM. He spoke confidently about the progress the UMC members clubs have made in peacefully resolving issues and lobbying against the anti-association laws.
The Festival was attended by many mainstream organisations and it was good for them to hear what Ferret had to say. UMC NSW had a display where members of the Diggers Military Club were selling supporters packs and promoting a Harley Davidson raffle.
Forty four trophies were on offer for the motorcycle and car shows and both attracted some outstanding machinery. Thanks to everyone who supported the Silverwater Motor Festival this year and we hope they will come back in in 2011.
