4. A huge event
Perhaps more so than any other race, the Australian Grand Prix feels like a grand event. In 2019, F1 hosted its first ever Season Launch event in downtown Melbourne ahead of the race, allowing fans to see the drivers up close and celebrate the start of a new season. There’s plenty of other opportunities to get close to the drivers over the weekend, especially at the circuit’s ‘Melbourne Walk’. More information can be found here
In addition, the Australian Grand Prix prides itself on providing one of the largest support bills of any race on the F1 calendar. Historic displays, Supercars, Porsche Carrera Cup, Formula 4 and Australian GT races have all featured on the schedule in recent years. With further aerial displays and events running at the circuit’s Action Zone, there’s never a dull moment at the Australian Grand Prix!
