Rev Up for the North Lakes’ Cars & Coffee Morning for a Cause

Performax International will host its first FREE, kid-friendly “Cars & Coffee” morning on Saturday, 8th of July at 8:00 a.m. The “everything automotive” event will also be filled with hot coffee and yummy cakes and treats from “Coffee on the Way”, a family-run cafe in Ferny Hills.

Parking at the venue is tight, but there will be parking spaces on the road and at the North Lakes Tavern car park.

Cars & Coffee for a Cause

Shevaune’s achievement of being independent

During the event, the staff will be circulating donation buckets for Youngcare Australia. Any amount is deeply appreciated.

Youngcare is a non-profit organisation established in 2005 to provide personal support, health care, and accommodation to young people with high care needs and teach them how to be independent while living in these facilities.

The idea of putting up Youngcare was inspired by the touching story of Shevaune Conry, a multiple sclerosis patient. Shavaune’s husband David established Youngcare together with his colleagues — Matthew Lawson, Nick Bonifant, and Simon Lockyer, with a common goal to create a “bright future” and provide extensive care to Shevaune and other Aussies with similar conditions.

“Everything Automotive”

Performax International will definitely showcase their wide range of specialised vehicles on the event. Here are two of the best cars that will be on display.

Our transformer friend Bumblebee will be seen in the flesh during the event. It is a Camaro 2SS, an iconic and head-turning muscle car. Bumblebee has a cool design combined with power features that is complete with awesome engine and performance, comfort, in-car entertainment, and safety.


The Raptor

This powerful beast was also built to steal the limelight. Its 3.5L Twin Turbo V6 engine, 10 speed automatic gearbox, and 3,628 kg towing capacity are just some of the raptor’s features that will be shown during the event.

There are other muscle cars that climb, crawl, and conquer the road at the event. Lucky car enthusiasts will also have the chance to test drive these vehicles.

View their virtual showroom here.
