Top Gear coming to Australia

ATTENTION motorheads and speedfreaks next year a festival specially designed for you is coming to Sydney Motorsport Park at Eastern Creek.

Hosted by the presenters of the highly successful television show Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson and James May, along with The Stig, the Top Gear Sydney festival will make its first appearance down under on Saturday, March 9 and Sunday, March 10, 2013.

Australia will be the second country in the world [after South Africa] to host the event and Sydney will be its only stop.

It will showcase a stellar line up of cars, stars, challenges and stunts, making it the ultimate outdoor motoring event.

The festival will feature the roar of the Red Bull Racing Formula One team in action with local hero and multiple F1 race winner Mark Webber at the wheel.

This will be the first time the Red Bull Racing F1 car has been on a Sydney race circuit.

The 2013 event offers a complete festival experience for visitors to Sydney Motorsport Park — every corner of the park will be ablaze with action, both on and off the track.

Guests will see exceptional precision driving and jaw-dropping stunts in the Stunts and Jumps zone; the world's most expensive and powerful cars in Stig's Supercar Garage; never before seen challenges and races across both circuits including the "Star in the Reasonably Priced Car" challenge; 4 by 4 and trial bike riders showcasing their skills on the brutal off-road challenge, and more.

Festival-goers will also be able to sample a range of gourmet food and drink from a variety of stalls.

Tickets for the event are available now through ticketek - ticketek.com.au.

Sydney Motorsport Park is located off Ferrers Road, Eastern Creek.
