Ferrari Enthusiasts Race Into Sydney

Ferrari owners and enthusiasts are set to gather at Sydney Motorsport Park on Friday April 11 – Sunday April 13, for the new Ferrari Racing Days event being held for the first time in Australia. The event is being supported by Destination NSW.

With the largest assembly of Ferrari cars Australia has ever seen, the event will showcase the world of Ferrari, including a round of the Ferrari 458 Asia Pacific Challenge series and the thrill of the official Ferrari F1 track and pit stop. There will also be a display of the latest complete Ferrari line-up and impressive models of classic Ferraris that have helped create the history of the "Prancing Horse".

Ferrari fans visiting Sydney who prefer their travels filled with style and luxury are well served by the city's resorts and hotels. The iconic Park Hyatt Sydney features plush rooms with floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto private balconies, ideal for taking in the harbour and Sydney Opera House views.

The Four Seasons Sydney is a luxury hotel located in the historic district of the Rocks and overlooks the Sydney Harbour. The Presidential Suite has two spacious bedrooms and stunning views from the hotel's top floor, while the view from the bathtub in the Deluxe Royal Suite takes in Sydney Opera House.

Also located in the Rocks precinct, the stylish five-star Shangri-La Hotel Sydney boasts five-star views of Sydney's shimmering harbour, and its famous bridge and Opera House.  Across the harbour, in Sydney's inner-city suburb of Pyrmont, The Darling is a vision of perfection. From the 400 thread Egyptian cotton sheets and handpicked pillow menu, to the textured wallpapers and bespoke furniture, this hotel is bound to please.
