SPEED ON TWEED - September 2010: The event, sponsored by 'Southcoast Automotive' specifically highlighted 'Australian Specials Racing Cars', built in Australia after World War 2, when British and European sourced race cars were in short supply. There certainly was one other highlight, the attendance of Sir Jack Brabham AO, OBE.
