Kings of the Road: Australian Grand Prix 2020

Melbourne’s reputation for hosting the world’s largest Formula One motorsport lineup remains intact ahead of the 2020 Australian Grand Prix.

The Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix is an annual four-day adrenalin rush. One of the world’s most glamorous sporting events—and Australia’s second oldest surviving motor-racing competition—the Grand Prix combines a series of high-octane racing events with live entertainment and premium hospitality.

The competition’s packed schedule this year comprises a huge support category line-up, including Supercars, the Porsche Carrera Cup, S5000, TCR and the MSS Security Speed Comparison. From the general admission area on Brocky’s Hill, racing fans will have prime position to view a full-throttle program that spans cutting-edge vehicles to historic cars and the subsidiary program of precision aerobatics by the Royal Australian Air Force that takes over Melbourne’s skies each year.

In the main event, Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton will be chasing history. Having won an incredible six world titles—including the last five out of six—Hamilton will equal Michael Schumacher’s record of seven world championships if he can bring home the 2020 competition. Other world-class drivers on the grid this year include Max Verstappen, Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo.

On the entertainment side of the 2020 equation, international pop-rock superstar Robbie Williams will be headlining the World Tour Melbourne live music line-up. His performance on 14 March at the Australian Grand Prix will be his only Australian public performance of 2020. Over the four days, the AusGP Sessions will feature homegrown global sensation Peking Duk, who will bring their larger-than-life DJ performance trackside, as well as a host of other artists including Client Liaison, Bag Raiders, CXLOE, Tigerlily, Mashd N Kutcher, Benson and Yo! Mafia.

While bar and restaurant pop-ups will line the turf of the general admission area, the Australian Grand Prix also offers guests the opportunity to book hospitality suites such as the Torque Bar, which combines prime viewing positions with all-day live DJ sets, a stunning cocktail garden and indoor lounge, a grazing menu, and televisions showcasing the live racing action from all angles.

Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix will take place from 12–15 March at Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit, Melbourne.
