Race To The City: F1 Cars On Adelaide’s Streets

In early December, Victoria Park in Adelaide will come alive to the sound of some very special machines. In just a few short years, the Adelaide Motorsport Festival has established itself as a major event on the Australian motorsports calendar, and you only have to check out Matt’s coverage from last year to see why.

Formula 1 machines are a big part of the event, and for 2017 they’ll be well represented once again. To highlight that fact and to tease the forthcoming festival, AMF has just released a video that was shot on Adelaide’s city streets at night.

The short film features no less than three F1 cars (an ex-Jos Verstappen 2000 Arrows A21, an ex-Gerhard Berger 1986 Benetton, and an ex-Christian Fittipaldi 1994 Arrows), plus a classic and very special 1977 Holden A9X Torana, and a 2015 Ducati Superbike. We think it’s pretty cool, and now you can check out Race To The City by hitting play above.

Every once in a while, you guys refer to an old article and my mind is blown when I realize how long ago it was published. It doesn't feel like Matt's been working here for a full year!

Time flies when everyone is having fun!


Cars were cool in the video, but it really didn't seem to have much of a plot? They weren't actually "racing" but just cruising through the city. The buildup was all for a big let down.


Johnny Bowe in what looks like the Ron Harrop-John Harvey Bathurst A9X? Fantastic stuff. I would give my back teeth for a go in that thing.


Why ruin such an excelent engine soundtrack, with shitty music? 2017 almost over, and video producers haven't learned yet?

Almost makes me want to go to Adelaide. Almost.


Need to find myself some airplane tickets to the Aussie land right now!

Would have been super cool to watch them film this!
