Australian Grand Prix



Australia’s longest-running motor race is the first of the season. The challenging fast route circles Melbourne’s Albert Park Lake, giving the race a lush and bright backdrop to offset the furious action on the 5.3 km circuit. The Melbourne event has made a name for itself as a glamourous affair, attracting local and international stars who arrive en masse to soak up the elegance and ambiance of the Paddock Club™ – located right above the team garages – as well as socialise and network in the exclusive lounge and garden venues adjacent to it.

“Melbourne – What a Great Place for the Race” – the saying goes! The Australian Grand Prix is the second oldest motor race competition running in Australia. It was first run at Phillip Island in 1928. It became part of the Formula 1 Championship in 1985. Since 1996 it has been held at the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit at Albert Park, Melbourne. The 16-turn circuit, measuring 5.3 kilometres, was built using every day sections of the road that surrounds Albert Park Lake, just south of the Central Business District of Melbourne. The track provides a famously smooth and high-speed test for F1 teams and drivers.
