A variety of new attractions, including kids' rides and entertainment, fashion parades and gourmet food will add to the festival atmosphere. Vehicle owners are invited to showcase their motoring style by displaying their pride and joy on the day. Be sure to register early to take advantage of the discounted 'early bird' rate and to secure your position.

This is the first membership fee increase since July 1, 2005 and still maintains RACQ's position as the lowest subscription of any Australian automobile club.

The Fatality Free Friday initiative, highly commended at the RACQ-sponsored Queensland Road Safety Awards last year, aims to get people to reflect on their own road use and behaviour and concentrate on safe driving. Make your pledge by visiting fatalityfreefriday.com. RACQ renews rescue support So far this year, the RACQ Helicopter Rescue Network has been seen plucking backpackers from a yacht stuck on rocks in the Whitsundays, flying to the rescue in flood-ravaged areas of the state and delivering rapid medical intervention to a number of road crash victims. Now RACQ's multi-million dollar sponsorship deal will help the rescue services to continue their vital mercy missions for another three years. The Club last month announced almost $6 million of support for community helicopter rescue services in Queensland, renewing sponsorships of RACQ CareFlight, RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue and RACQ-CQ Rescue. The three community-based aero- medical and rescue services provide a mantle of safety to more than three million people across southern, central and north Queensland.
