In the last issue was the story I submitted regarding the Hillview Short Circuit at Muswellbrook. I mentioned that the 1960 Australian Titles were conducted over two days of the Queen’s Birthday weekend in June. However this is not correct as the titles were on the Sunday only. There was a general meeting conducted on the Monday and one source tells me that it was a Restricted meeting for those members of clubs within Northern Centre, that is Newcastle and surrounding region. Also I said that Norm Fraser was a member of Lyons club, when in fact this should have been Lakes. Thought that I should rectify these errors before editor Jim gave me “the sack”. with some 375 people passing through. The Show and Shine had some sixty cars and about 40 motorcycles from local and Newcastle based clubs. For 2016 we are examining the possibility of having an auction conducted for both car and motorcycles but not parts. Interested parties who may wish to lodge vehicles can contact me so as we can assess if this is going to be a viable idea. I am also in negotiation with a tourist bus operator to determine if it is possible next year to convey both car and motorcycle enthusiasts from Melbourne to Nabiac.
Additionally if any reader has access to a bus or even a 20 seater rental bus we would like to organise a similar contingent from the Brisbane area. Contact me if you wish to obtain a seat in these buses. This is a 1971 model machine which has low mileage since a rebuild and is fitted with Boyer ignition and Mikuni carburetors. You have to be present to win and last year there was four numbers drawn before a winner was awarded the machine. A Bike Show will be conducted 8.00am to 10.45am on Sunday. This is open to club eligible machines only. The classes are for pre 1930, 1945, 1962, 1972, 1984 and competition motorcycles.
