Australian Grand Prix

When:  15 – 18 March 2019
Where:  Albert Park Circuit, Melbourne

The Grand Prix is the oldest surviving motor racing competition held in Australia; having been held 79 times since it was first run at Phillip Island in 1928. Since 1985; the race has been a round of the FIA Formula One World Championship and is currently held at the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit at Albert Park in Melbourne. Prior to its inclusion in the World Championship; the Grand Prix was held at a multitude of venues in every state of Australia. It was a centrepiece of the Tasman Series in most years between 1964 and 1972 and was a round of the Australian Drivers’ Championship on many occasions between 1957 and 1983.

It became part of the Formula One World Championship in 1985 and was held at the Adelaide Street Circuit in Adelaide, South Australia; from that year to 1995, before moving to Melbourne in 1996. The winner of the race is presented with a circular plate; recently named the Jack Brabham trophy named for the three-time winner in a design based on the steering wheel of one of Brabham’s racing cars and a perpetual trophy; the Lex Davison trophy; named for four-time winner and also dates back to the 1960s.

The Australian Grand Prix is the first round of the Championship; having been the first race of each year, excluding 2006 and 2010; since the event moved to Melbourne. During its years in Adelaide; the Australian Grand Prix was the final round of the Championship, replacing the Portuguese Grand Prix in that respect. As the final round of the season; the Grand Prix hosted a handful of memorable races, most notably the 1986 and 1994 races which saw the 1986 and 1994 World Drivers’ Championships decided.
