SYDNEY - BBC Top Gear Festival in Sydney 2013

TOP GEAR FESTIVAL 2013 in SYDNEY - Launched for the very first time ever in Sydney, the spectacular event took place at Sydney Motorsport Park, Eastern Creek on 9 and 10th March 2013. Australia is only the second country to ever host a Top Gear Festival and I was extremely excited to attend the event. I went for the grand opening day on the 9th of March and I was in awe at the festival highlights which simply took my breath away. With incredible Top Gear stars comprising Jeremy Clarkson, James May, The Stig, F1 driver Mark Webber etc. and loads of exotic cars doing challenging stunts, what more can you ask for? On top of everything, thank God for the beautiful weather as it was a hot sunny day with no rain. Official website at

My personal favorite was to watch the Car versus Plane on the racing track at really high speeds. It was Jamie Whincup's V8 supercar versus Top gun stunt pilot Mark Hall. It was something more interesting than watching the various racing cars going at extremely dangerous speeds on the racing track. I also enjoyed watching F1 driver Mark Webber showing off his F1 driving skills around the circuit in his Red Bull F1 Car in an attempt to break the record and my my he was amazingly fast and furious! The crowd was cheering him on and he beat the record in his very first attempt. To end off, Mark Webber also drifted dangerously right in front of the crowd and it was highly exhilarating!

Besides watching the Festival highlights filled with racing cars and dangerous car stunts, I also visited the Stig's Supercar Garage where many exotic cars were featured. It showcases the world's most expensive and powerful cars. Look what I spotted? A bright yellow Pagandi Zonda!!! Other booths consisted of car insurance, car polish and even car sales/rental. You can even take a helicopter ride as well as rent a Segway.

Oh another interesting thing was I found a beautiful white Ferrari and it kinda inspired me to perhaps considering modifying my red Ferrari F360? This white beauty looks so elegant and the pink leather seats and pink number plate makes it really feminine isn't it?

In the midst of the festival, I managed to hop onto the racing track to capture these photos without getting run down by any racing cars! It was great to stand on the race tracks and smell the burning rubber. It was a memorable event and I enjoyed the experience despite perspiring under the hot scorching sun. A unique and electrifying event indeed!

P.S: I was almost deaf by the end of the festival with ringing ears..I think you could guess why!

Lastly, I should be reading the Top Gear Magazine - March 2013 issue for the next few days and the highlight of the issue is why the Lexus LFA which costs AUD $750,000 is the "Best Car I've Ever Driven" by Jeremy Clarkson. The Lexus LFA V10 engine revs from idle to the redline in just 0.6 of a second which makes it an incredible fast car. At a speed of 100km/h, Jeremy's ears were bleeding as the engine was howling at 3000 rpm.
