The Australian Grand Prix Corporation and Mazda Australia have again joined forces with the return of the Celebrity Challenge at the 2014 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix. Mazda will showcase the All-New Mazda3 powered by a SKYACTIV-G 2.5 litre petrol engine.
The Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge brings together 20 celebrities from different backgrounds and disciplines to compete at Melbourne’s spectacular Albert Park street circuit.
Prior to getting to Albert Park, the celebrity drivers undergo 3 days of intense driver training culminating in a CAMS (Confederation of Australian Motorsport) License. They will then take to the circuit on Thursday for practice sessions, qualifying on Friday followed by a 5 lap race on Saturday and Sunday.
