SPEED ON TWEED - September 2010:

In 2010 the event was sponsored by 'Southcoast Automotive' it specifically highlighted 'Australian Specials Racing Cars', built in Australia after World War 2, when British and European sourced race cars were in short supply.

The highlight of my attendance this year, unquestionably meeting Sir Jack Brabham AO, OBE.

The 'clickable' image is #6: MG TC, originally built in 1948...

SPEED ON TWEED - September 2008:

Speed on Tweed had been run very successfully for many years, of course I never bothered to attend until I heard the 2008 event was to be the last, no way.

A thoroughly enjoyable experience stretching over some three days with so many beautiful cars, legends of Australian and New Zealand Motor Sport in attendance, just great!

I LOVE NEW TECHNOLOGY, TABLETS, LAPTOPS, DIGITAL CAMERAS, MOBILE PHONES/WIRELESS BROADBAND, GPS, ETC.  ALL SO COOL AND 'PORTABLE'......
