Blue Lake Nationals

Mount Gambier

23-25 March 2018

The 2018 Blue Lake Nationals – to give it its full title, is known as the 2018 Australian Street Rod Federation (ASRF) Regional Blue Lake Nationals.

It is to be held in Mount Gambier between 23 and 25 March 2018. The event is under the control of the ASRF South Australian Divisional Council.

There is a committee of dedicated rodders who are working hard to ensure the event is a success for rodders, spectators, exhibitors, sponsors – and the great town of Mount Gambier and local regions that have committed to fully support the event.

See you cruising at the Mount! Trevor Cass – Event Manager
