Festival of Speed on Tweed

The annual ‘Speed on Tweed’ event held in the northern New South Wales town of Murwillumbah every September is rapidly becoming a Mecca for Car enthusiasts of all kinds. Organised by the Murwillumbah Rotary Club, it s original concept was to hold a motor sport event with the aim of raising funds for local charities. Run predominantly by volunteers, it has focused on displaying vintage, veteran and historic cars in an active role.

There are very few static displays at this event and the theme this year was on Australian Grand Prix, showcasing some of the notable participants of previous AGP events. The event starts on the Friday with a lunchtime parade through the town, moving on the early evening with a street party. Saturday sees the start of competition in earnest. This is in the form of a time trial. The cars are required to complete a short road circuit which starts and finishes in the showground and cuts its way through the three dimensional outer suburbs of Murwillumbah.

The days activities are augmented by photo and autograph sessions and a competitor parade lap at lunchtime. The evening once again moves on to main street in the town with wining and dining a must and street performances from roving artists and a main concert.

A lot of the cars entered come from all over Australia at the owners expense and the Speed on Tweed is slowly obtaining a national event status on the list of events ‘to do!’

When I'm not racing slotcars,
I'm out in the back yard, burning food!!

When I win, it's because of my talent, not my car or my controller!
