Gouger Street Party and Parade
The Adelaide Motorsport Festival gets off to a flying start on Friday December 8 with a fantastic free event in the heart of Adelaide’s restaurant precinct.
The Gouger Street Party begins with the Peak Hour of Power parade of phenomenal vehicles driving under police escort from Victoria Park, up Wakefield Street, Grote Street and Morphett Street to Gouger Street. Cars taking part in the parade include the rare and remarkable Ferrari FXX driven by Craig Lowndes, the trio of Formula One cars and drivers from our Race to the City film, World Superbike champ Troy Bayliss on a Ducati, a 1967 Brabham, and Nick Percat in a brand new McLaren 720S. Garth Tander will pilot a prototype Super5000 open-wheeler, the unbelievable 1000hp twin-turbo WTF86 will make its public debut, while the competitors from the Adelaide Rally will also appear.
Once in Gouger Street, you’ll be able to see these incredible cars up close, talk to the drivers, and enjoy an evening of entertainment from party band Mr Buzzy and roving performers. Try your hand at old school racing games like Daytona and Sega Rally and enjoy a meal from any of the restaurants on this popular dining strip – it’s sure to be buzzing, so make a booking at your favourite restaurant now!

Uraidla Audi-Solitaire Street Party
Rally fans can get their fix of fast cars and fabulous food at the Uraidla Audi-Solitaire Street Party on Saturday December 9, from 11:30am.
More than 200 cars participating in the Adelaide Rally will come through Uraidla twice during the day, between 11:30 and 3:30, providing plenty of opportunities to see these cars up close, talk to the drivers and experience the atmosphere of a tarmac rally event.
Uraidla is just 10 minutes up Greenhill Road from Burnside Village, but it seems like a different world. This quaint country town has undergone a resurgence of late, with three contemporary dining options making it something of a culinary hotspot in the Hills. Lunch options include the refurbished Uraidla Hotel, the acclaimed Lost in a Forest pizza and wine bar, and the Uraidla Republic, a cafe, bakery and craft brewery that opened just this month.
While you’re in the neighbourhood, why not visit a cellar door? CRFT Wines, Tappanappa, Barratt Wines, Greenhill Wines and Ochota Barrels all have cellar doors within three kilometres of Uraidla, and all produce distinctive Hills wines.
The Uraidla street party is a free community event and all are welcome to this feast for the senses.
