Get your fix of fast-paced excitement
If motorsport gets your engines revving, why not book your next holiday to coincide with a big name race? On the local scene, visit Adelaide in March to hear the roar of the V8s at the Clipsal 500 – the street circuit offers spectators double the fun with two 250 kilometre races. Little rev heads can enjoy the day too with kids' driving school and plenty of family-friendly entertainment. Alternatively, secure your stay in Melbourne and jump on a tram to Albert Park to catch Australia's longest standing motor race, the Formula One Grand Prix.
Watch the NASCAR pros in action at the world famous Daytona 500 in sunny Florida. While most motorsports tend to cap off the season with a bang, Daytona 500 kick starts the racing calendar in full force. Speedweek returns to the Daytona International Speedway each February where the cheering of the crowd is only bested by the growl of the engines. Heading inland, the state of Indiana plays host to the Indianapolis 500 over the Memorial Day weekend in May – the Indy 500 pulls focus across the world and recently clocked up over 100 years of racing.
Sit on the edge of your seat at what is arguably the world's most scenic racetrack, the Monaco Grand Prix. The prestigious Formula One race is famed for its changes in elevation and impossibly tight corners through the streets of Monte Carlo and La Condamine. Held in May, the Monaco Grand Prix combines glamour, adrenaline and a striking harbour-side backdrop to earn a place on the wish lists of most racing enthusiasts.
