The world’s largest travelling car show, the Hot Wheels Legends Tour, returns to Australia and New Zealand after its debut in 2021.
The Hot Wheels Legends Tour is an annual event that sees thousands of Hot Wheels fans compete to have their custom car reimagined as a 1:64th scale Hot Wheels die-cast toy and sold around the world.
The judging panel will include former Supercars commentator Greg Rust and rally champion Molly Taylor.
The Hot Wheels Legends Tour will once again be virtual, with one Australian and one New Zealander chosen to compete in the Hot Wheels Legends Tour global semi-finals.
“We’re delighted to again encourage Australian and New Zealander car enthusiasts to showcase their epic vehicles to the world,” said Jacinta Whitehead, marketing director, ANZ, Mattel.
“Particularly, after what was an overwhelmingly successful first year for us in the series. We thank our local partners Big W in Australia and The Warehouse in New Zealand who’ll again be helping us to lift the hood on some of Australia and New Zealand’s most die-cast worthy wheels.”
Since launching in 2018 to celebrate Hot Wheels 50th anniversary, the Hot Wheels Legends Tour has grown from an American-based series of local Walmart events across the United States of America to the world’s largest travelling car show, bringing in builders and automotive fans through both virtual and live events that now spans 14 countries and five continents.
