Torque Masters auto show set for Sunday

Show expected to draw some 10,000 spectators to Sidney's streets

Car enthusiasts take in last year’s Torquemasters car show. This year’s event happens on Sunday.

The Saanich Peninsula will be bustling this weekend as the Torque Masters prepare to host their annual car show on the streets of Sidney Sunday.

The Torque Masters Car Club Annual Auto Extravaganza Car Show and Shine Fundraising Event happens Sunday, Aug. 25 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Beacon Avenue from Fifth to Second Streets.

Cars of all years, makes and models will be present for the show which organizers estimate will draw upwards of 10,000 spectators to Sidney.

The show was a long time fixture in Sidney and after a hiatus, took over Beacon Avenue again last year.

Along with the slew of cars featured along the streets, a 50/50 draw will take place as well as a raffle for a barbecue, a power washer and a day at the spa.

New features at the show this year include the Mustang Corral where all Ford Mustangs will be located in one special area of the show.
