All bikes that are entered into the show must move their vehicle by pushing only. All vehicles must remain in the judging area until 2.00pm and moved only if necessary. When a vehicle must be moved the owner must go the Administration Office so that Administration can arrange for a Club Laverda Event Staff member to manage the removal of the vehicle. The vehicle must be moved by pushed. Club Laverda Qld Inc cannot allow the owner to start and ride the vehicle out of the judging area. If a vehicle must be removed from the judging area the vehicle departure must be via the driveway to the east (past the toilet block).
