10 anniversaries to keep track of in 2014 (part 3)
Let’s conclude looking at the ten anniversaries to keep track of in 2014 and we’ll start on a musical note.
Fifty years since Beatlemania started a revolution of rock’n’roll
1964 was the first time the Fab Four played in the USA, and neither them nor America, nor rock’n’roll were ever the same again.
This first iconic trip started at JFK Airport and then straight to the Ed Sullvian theatre, from where they’ve broadcast to America’s largest ever TV audience. Then you can make another trip to Miami Beach – where the second Ed Sullivan Show was filmed, or you can stay in New York and visit Carnegie Hall – where of course they performed.
Fifty years since speed records were broken in Australia
A destination for the speed enthusiasts, to reach the place where one man broke speed records on both land and water – British velocity enthusiast Donalt Campbell, in 1964 obviously. Going to the two places of his record breaking make for a very unusual Australian tour because there’s not that much to see at Lake Eyre – although it is the country’s largest lake when it’s not dry – however, there is a plaque marking the man’s efforts at Level Post bay. You’ll need a 4×4 to access the rough tracks and location. As for the water speed record, this one was set at Lake Dumbleyung, which is about three hours drive from Perth.
Marking twenty years since Ayrton Senna’s last race in Italy
Ayrton Senna was killed in 1994 during that year’s San Marino Grand Prix, which was held at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola. The three-time Formula One world champion is buried in his home town of Sao Paulo, Brazil but some fans will surely want to visit Italy this year as well, because this can allow for visiting a bunch of other famous sights related to the motorsport.
Keep in mind some worldwide car rental services when visiting any of these place.
