RACE OVERVIEW

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.
