Hearts Racing | 2018 Adelaide Motorsport Festival. 

03.12.2018

Racing car fans were given the ultimate treat with the return of the 2018 Adelaide Motorsport Festival. The festival reached new heights this year, with four huge days of machinery and racing.

The Mercedes-Benz Adelaide & Unley tour was the largest in the 2018 Adelaide Rally with 36 vehicles participating. The Mercedes-AMG Tour group were able put their vehicles to the ultimate test over three days, both on the racetrack and through some of the state’s most picturesque closed-road stages.

The Peak Hour of Power geared up the festival to a flying start with a high-octane parade of 21 rare and desirable vehicles all making their way through Adelaide’s Friday night rush hour traffic, joining over 250 Adelaide Rally vehicles at the Gouger Street Party. Following the Gouger Street Party, the Mercedes-AMG Tour group made their way into Gaucho's Argentinian Restaurant for a private chargrill culinary experience.

Trackside, the Mercedes-Benz Adelaide & Unley VIP marquee was inspired by the 60s, with the iconic and rare 1960 SL 300 Roadster on display and a touch of velvet finishes. The marquee offered the exclusive opportunity for our clients to be entertained in style with some of the best seats in the house. On-track action from sprint circut laps to air racer, Matt Hall taking on one of the world's fastest cars in an air-verus-road race. Guests were blown away by the exquisite selection of canapés including chilled gulf prawn charred brioche buns, paella paired with salad greens and valdispino chocolate mousse - all of which paired perfectly with the free-flowing pours of Pol Roger Champagne.

Meanwhile, off-track the 2018 Adelaide Motorsport Festival was a virtual musum in motion which included a display of 10 of our favourite Mercedes-Benz vehicles, both past and present and various other displays and activites for all festival-goers to participate in.
