An artist with a free-wheeling lifestyle (at least by the standards of 1930s Australia), wealthy Rowland Sinclair reluctantly agrees to a charity race. He'll drive his beloved yellow Mercedes on the Maroubra Speedway—known as the Killer Track for the lives it has claimed—with a young Errol Flynn and well-known driver Joan Richmond as teammates.
