From car racing to horse racing, there are major race events going on all over Europe every single year. One of the most renowned motor racing events, for instance, is the Grand Prix, which occurs all over the continent, including in Monaco and in Spain for the Spanish Grand Prix. Car lovers, and those who feel the need for speed, flock to these events from all over the world, eager to see how their favourite drivers – and vehicles – will perform.
Those who follow horse racing will of course know about the Cheltenham Festival in the UK, though many object to the way the horses are treated – and many people are just there for the pretty hats and colourful garments.
In addition, lovers of speed and engineering adore the Moto GP races which involve motorcycles of the highest calibre and which take place in various locations (Holland is the 2018 location, for example).
