Now a major drawcard for Murwillumbah and northern NSW, the Festival of Speed on Tweed continues to flourish amid the sights and sounds of historic racing cars on a street circuit through the middle of town.

This year, the motoring activities associated with The Festival of Speed on Tweed take to the open road on Thursday and Friday, September 14 & 15, for the inaugural ‘Tour the Tweed’.

Organised by Dan and Rosie White of Drive Country Australia, the two-day event will be held as a Touring Assembly on the bitumen-sealed and very scenic local roads and country lanes found throughout the Northern Rivers Region of NSW.

Crews in ‘Tour the Tweed’ are invited to attend the official functions during The Festival of Speed on Tweed program.  The course has been arranged for the crews to arrive at the functions at the end of each day’s drive.

‘Tour the Tweed’ provides the opportunity for historic motoring enthusiasts to showcase the fascinating array of motor cars from earlier times, constructed for travelling on the open road.

Many models from the classic and historic eras and some of the earlier vintages are still registered for road use.  Their range is diverse – from luxury saloons “fit for a king” to zippy roadsters with just room enough to fit the driver, a passenger and, perhaps, some light luggage.  

It is anticipated the sight of wonderful machines such as these, out and about touring the glorious countryside, will enhance the nostalgic appeal of The Festival of Speed on Tweed.

Vehicles in the touring event that reflect the spirit of The Festival of Speed on Tweed celebrations will be selected also by the Festival Organisers to join in various activities throughout the 2006 program.
