Australian Grand Prix


Going way back to Phillips Island in 1928, the Australian Grand Prix brought about an era of Australian Specials. Races called the Australian Grand Prix were run on dirt-tracks, airfield circuits, Calder Park Raceway, Mount Panorama now the home for Bathurst 1000 races, and a myriad of tracks throughout Australia.

In the fifties and sixties they ran the Tasman series with many Grand Prix teams bringing last year`s formula 1 cars. The drivers enjoyed the sun plus the prize money and the team owners sold their cars at the end of the Tasman series. Everyone in F1 would go home happy and start a new season.

Bruce McLaren, and Jack Brabham followed them back and started building their own teams with future world Champion Danny Hulme following them. It was Jack Brabham who became the only F1 World Champion to drive a car of his own team.

In 1985 Formula 1 brought the Australian Grand Prix into the World Championship at Adelaide. The city really got involved the race with street parties and a carnival atmosphere. Ever heard of an upside down meat pie in pea soup, venders served them on the street and they tasted really good. Melbourne, the `city of sport`, stole away the Australian Grand Prix to run at Albert Park in 1996. It has now become the home of the Australian Grand Prix with a contract until 2023.

The Australian Grand prix is an awesome event held in the Australian Autumn when the weather is much better than the Northern US States. New F1 cars, new drivers entering the championship, start of a new F1 season, it really makes the trip to Melbourne special. You will love Melbourne.

Melbourne


Marvelous Melbourne as the locals call it is one of the most wonderful locations that Formula 1 visits. It`s a friendly town with a mix of English heritage with Greek, Asian, German, well in fact pretty much every nationality you can think of. There is a great China Town with some of the best Chinese food you can eat anywhere in the World. But it is the hotel you are staying at that many say holds the most famous name in Australia.

Walter Lindrum, if you have never heard of him you obviously have never played billiards. Walter`s father was a billiard`s Champion, as was his grandfather. In fact they are the most famous family in the World of Billiards. Walter however was the best champion of all holding the World Professional Billiards Championship from 1933 until his retirement in 1950. Why is this so important? Well you may be sleeping where championships were won, or billiard records set. This was the Lindrum Billiards Center until it was converted into a wonderful unique five star boutique hotel in 1999.

Just a stone`s throw away from the Lindrum is the Flinders Street Railway Station. There is a story that the London architect designing the station sent the wrong drawings by mistake. So Melbourne built a station that was intended for Bombay, it is however a landmark and Bombays loss was Melbournes gain. Marvelous Melbourne is the place to be in March 2017.
