2011 Mallala All Historics - Easter weekend

Above: This memorial rock dedicated to the life of the Late Kevin Shearer was unveiled on Saturday evening in front of a crowd of over 100. Kevin, and the entire Shearer family have organised the Easter all historic event since its inception in the 1970s. The Ford Model A V8 Special on the bronze plaque is the car he built, and in an early outing at Phillip Island managed to put on a good race against an ERA that had travelled from the UK for that event.
