The Festival of Speed on Tweed is widely renowned as Australia's version of the famous Goodwood Festival of Speed in England.

Over 12,000 people converge on the Northern NSW town of Murwillumbah in late September for the annual historic speed trials. 160 cars and their drivers, challenge each other's speed and skill over the 1.4 kilometre street circuit.

The Festival of Speed on Tweed is a non-profit event run by the Rotary Club and a group of extremely dedicated volunteers. At the conclusion of the event, all profits are distributed to pre-selected National and local charities.

The event itself is classic and tasteful with only a select group of notable vehicles accepted and fine food and prestige beverages offered to the viewing public.

In the past three years the following organistaions have received donations from the Festival.

    * Children's Cancer Institute Australia
    * Murwillumbah Hospital
    * Apex
    * Rotary Australia
    * State Emergency Services

Each year the event attracts some of the biggest names in motorsport history. In 2002, Sir Jack Brabham and Leo Geoghegan took part, whilst in 2003 and 2004 it was Frank Gardner.

It is not only the drivers who take centre stage. Such famous race cars as Jim Richards' 1982 Bathurst winning Godzilla, a 1985 Ferrari 156, once raced by Michele Alboreto and a Maybach driven by Stan Jones, father of famous F1 driver, Alan.

" Our aim is to stage the very best event possible and we won't rest until we achieve our goal. "
