The David Hack Classic Meet On Sunday, 16th May

2021 marks the 22nd year that the Rotary Club of Toowoomba North has run this annual event. This is the Club’s major fundraiser for local charities such as the Leukaemia Foundation, Blue Care, Rotary charities and many more.
David Hack was a passionate young man whose life was tragically cut short by Non Hodgkins Lymphoma (Leukaemia). The loves of his life were cars and photography. He had the makings of a brilliant career as a motoring photo-journalist, contributing to magazines such as Street Machines, Fast Fours, Wheels, and Performance Street Car Magazine.

For his 28th Birthday, a huge “Birthday Bash” had been organised at Aerotec Hangar, Toowoomba Aerodrome, but tragically he passed away two days before it was held. Rotary has held this annual event to create a lasting memorial to a wonderful young man.

Some of the exciting attractions on display this year were an Amphicar (see above for a demonstration), the RAAF C27-J Spartan aircraft and many more classic vehicles and warbirds. Those attending were able to  get up close and personal to the static displays and vehicles lovingly restored.

Children were able to enjoy a jumping castle and the Bunnings Kids Workshop marquee. There were food stalls, barista coffee outlets, ice creams and drinks. Qld Fire & Rescue demonstrate the jaws of life and cut up a vehicle in a simulated extraction.

The David Hack Classic has won the “Elegance in Motion Event Award” at the Festival of Elegance, Gold Coast. This year we saw over 300 exhibits at the Toowoomba City Aerodrome, Spitfire Street, Wilsonton on Sunday, 16th May.
