Any Given Reason has just returned from pre-event scruitineering at City Holden for this weekend’s Adelaide Motorsport Festival, and if the small snapshot of cars present at that time is anything to go by we’re in for quite the treat.
This coming Saturday I will step out from behind the camera and put the helmet on, competing in the Windy Point Hillcimb in our Alfa Romeo Sprint. Friend of Any Given Reason Luke Jaksa will take the lens on Saturday, capturing the spirit of this first-time hillclimb for AGR. My father will be behind the wheel of the Alfa for Sunday’s Victoria Park Sprint, while I will be relegated to the sidelines behind the camera once again. But there will be Formula One cars roaring around the Victoria Park circuit as well as hundreds of other fine machines, so it’s hardly a tough job.
Spectating is going to be pretty tricky up at Windy Point on Saturday, and my advice is to get there early to get a good spot at the lookout. You could try your luck trekking through the bushland but I understand they will be very hot on keeping people away for safety reasons, so be prepared to be turned back if this is your plan.
All the information you need including timings, entry lists (Formula One cars woooo!) and maps can be found at the Adelaide Motorsport Festival website.
