Reflecting on the event's success, MotorEx co-owner Andy Lopez said, "The exhibition has never looked better, and the support from the car community has never been more robust. Despite the challenging weather, we were elated to witness such an enthusiastic turnout and dedication from all participants.

Meguiar's, our longest-standing MotorEx event partner, has committed to supporting us for the next three years, and I eagerly anticipate further strengthening our partnership and enhancing the event during that time."
