Just when you think that Gold Coast is all about the beaches and sands and surfs, wait until you can see the Armor All Gold Coast 600.
What the Festival Is About
If others have Indy and NASCAR, Gold Coast has the Gold Coast 600. More than 15 international drivers from Australia and other parts of the world will compete for speed, honor, and best car model (and who knows, good looks) as thousands of spectators look on.
The competition, which lasts for three days from October 22 to October 24, is going to be held in the street circuit, just created for the speed circuit racing. It will be the goal of the drivers to complete at least a third of the 300-km distance on Saturday and Sunday.
Spectators can gather at different points. The best view is available at Surfers Paradise. However, it’s also possible to watch the cars beat one another up in Broadbeach and Main Beach.
What to Do
Of course, you should be ready to get your adrenalin pump up as these drivers will show no mercy against other cars. They will be very impatient, and their eyes are just set on the goal. You can also get a glimpse of the best drivers in the world, those who have graced several sports magazines and appeared on television shows countless times.
You can also share your passion with the rest of the people who love racing. To make it even more exciting, you can pick your own choice and make some bets with friends and family.
Entertainment isn’t far behind during the Armor All Gold Coast 600. Different bands and other performers will gather at the venue and transform the area into the ultimate party scene. You can look forward to overflowing food, music, beer, and wine.
When you’re getting bored, you can lounge at the beach or enjoy the water activities. Check out the beach markets too, where you can find an assortment of arts and crafts that are just great for souvenirs.
The Gold Coast 600 is going to be one of the biggest events in the region. You may not be able to catch up for 2010, but you have enough time to go there at 2011. As early as now, you better book a room as reservations are very fast. You may want to settle in Surfers Paradise and the nearby beaches, so you are sure you won’t have a hard time finding a good spot during the actual racing competition.
