One of the most highly anticipated new events on the Western Australia 2022 motorsport calendar is fast approaching with the inaugural Joondalup Festival of Motoring to take place at the end of the month.
A jam-packed schedule across three days makes up the free event, which will welcome more than 1000 vehicles across the weekend.
Inspired by some of the most iconic motorsport festivals throughout the world, the Joondalup Festival of Motoring features a good mix of family-friendly fun and entertainment with high-octane motorsport action.
Headlining the event will be the Joondalup Sprint on the Sunday where up to 150 cars will be battling it out to post the fastest lap around the challenging two and half kilometre street course.
The course will pass by many landmarks from around the area including Reid Promenade, Central Park, the North Metropolitan TAFE, the Joondalup Library, WA Police Academy and Edith Cowan University.
Event Director Justin Hunt believed competitors would enjoy the sprint, as it was safe and technical, while also giving fans a great view.
“There is nothing like this event in Perth. Competitors will find this course delivers an enjoyable amount of technicality,” Hunt said.
“It presents the kind of challenge that will have you comparing strategies with fellow competitors in the Service Zone on how you tackled certain sectors.
“The course also includes fast flowing sectors that will get the engine singing and turning spectator’s heads, this isn’t a car park run.”
Entries for the event are still being accepted with only a few spots remaining in the Sprint.

On the Friday, the PowerPlay Corporate Challenge where companies can battle it out on the karting track in high energy electric karts, while the Mega Motoring Movie Marathon will cap off the day with hit pictures such as Days of Thunder, Ford Versus Ferrari and the original Italian Job.
The Saturday will see a combination of car displays with food and beverage in the heart of Joondalup via the City of Joondalup Coffee & Cars, which serves as a fundraiser for Wheels For Hope, and the Cars & Cocktails in the Kennards Hire Central Park.
There is also a spectacular car display that will host more than 500 cars through five regionally-themed precincts.
Event organisers are also on the lookout for more officials to help run the event with plenty of benefits available for individuals who volunteer.
