ERNEST Hemingway said “There are only three sports: bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering; all the rest are merely games.”
Growing up in the UK, I became accustomed to motorsport at an early age and in those early years the UK was a major player in Formula One with champions such as Mike Hawthorn; Stirling Moss, (labelled as “the greatest driver never to have won the world championship”), Graham Hill, Jim Clark, John Surtees and Jackie Stewart
Now Australia’s fastest growing sport is Motorsport, in particular – V8 Supercars, and the stats tell us motorsport is the 4th most popular sport in the country. Aussies can indulge their passion for motor racing all year round. Head to Melbourne for the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix in March or visit the popular motorcycle circuit on Phillip Island. For adrenalin-surging V8 action, there’s the Gold Coast 600 in Surfers Paradise, the Sydney 500 and the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide. Watch elite sports cars race around Tasmania in the Targa Tasmania or witness true driving endurance at the Bathurst 1000. Follow quad bikes, 4WDs and motorbikes from Perth to Kalgoorlie in the Australasian Safari. Or check out mean street machines at Canberra’s Summernats Car Festival.
