The Adelaide Motorsport Festival is a virtual “museum-in-motion”. A two-day festival that draws upon South Australia’s rich motorsport history and celebrates and re-enacts motorsport competition of a by-gone era. Grand Prix cars from the 1930s to the 1990s are the main focus for the inaugural Adelaide Motorsport Festival and the event is rounded out with a diverse field of historic touring cars, sports cars and classic motorcycles that are welcome to enter as well as displays from some of the greatest classic cars from across the years.



The Adelaide Motorsport Festival is designed to attract local, interstate and international competition cars and motorcycles. The first day of the festival sees classic sports, touring and special interest vehicles undertaking a hillclimb at Windy Point (6km from CBD) whilst the second day features on-track competition on a section of the famous Australian Grand Prix circuit which is now well known as the Clipsal 500 track.



Many of the vehicles attending are rare and collectable pieces often with a colourful story to tell. Approximately 12 Grand Prix cars have been sourced to attend the Adelaide Motorsport Festival, conjuring up the same sights, sounds and smells that could be found trackside at previous Australian Grand Prix events.



The Adelaide Motorsport Festival intends on being true and authentic to South Australia’s rich motor racing heritage whilst creating new event experiences with relevance and meaning to the Adelaide motor racing enthusiast.



Both competitors and spectators are encouraged to dress up in period-costume on the Sunday. This will not only help portray an accurate re-creation of motorsport of the past, you might even win a prize for best dressed on the day!

Victoria Park Sprint was the most fun I have had in a while, but far from suited to our VR4 with factory sized gravel rally brakes. We were loosing 20 metres each lap on our braking markers! Something like an Evo would handle the 'stop and turn' style course alot better. VR4 won its class and loved pulling gears down Wakefield Street, Adelaide City.

I hope the event builds and continues into the future, I applaud the organisers for a top day out on Sunday.
