I've always wanted to go, but this year I was amazed to find I'd won a pair of VIP tickets to the festival courtesy of Michelin Tyres (via Event Mobile Tyres), so I took my 15 year old son. Although I'm a 46-year old woman, I love cars and watching races - so this was perfect. Despite the relentless heat, we had a fantastic time and even saw Nico Rosberg. The grounds are huge, and thankfully have many trees for shade, and there is a LOT of walking as there is so much to see and do.
Highlights - overhead display by a fighter jet (awesome), being in the right place at the right time as the supercars were being driven out of the display area, seeing the cars of the future (including an electric Lotus) and the FMX action display. And because we won a VIP package - another highlight was the fantastic Mexican dinner and entertainment the night before.
If you've never been to the Festival of Speed - I highly recommend it! Kids will love it, a fantastic day out in a beautiful part of the country.
