Local motor-heads are gearing up for the 11th annual Trade Hire Motorfest on Sunday, November 26, with organisers revving their engines for charity.

Event organiser Phil Ashton said Motorfest appealed to motor enthusiasts and families alike, with every dollar raised put back into the local community.
