Motor racing

From road racing and the speedway to high powered dragsters and the FORMULA 1™ Grand Prix, Melbourne has plenty to offer the petrol obsessed motorhead.

Formula One

Time your trip to be in the city as it comes alive to the roar of engines over four days in March. Be there when the racing teams descend on the city for the FORMULA 1™ Australian Grand Prix, the first event of the season, and join 400,000 eager fans at the Albert Park Lake course, just minutes from of the city.

Around the city

Throughout the year road racing, drag racing and speedway can be seen at local raceways including Calder Park, Avalon Raceway and Sandown International Motor Raceway.
