Sporting royalty including Sir Jackie Stewart, Mark Webber and Tony Hawk will headline an exceptional initial line up of guests for the 2014 Official Grand Prix Breakfast at Crown Melbourne.
Following the success of the inaugural Grand Prix Breakfast last year, interest from potential guests has been strong, with motorsport and entertainment elite set to take to the stage on the morning of Saturday 15 March.
Past Formula One World Champions will be joined by current drivers and team principals. The exclusive event will also be broadcast live leading in to qualifying day at the 2014 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix.
According to Australian Grand Prix Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Westacott, with guests still to be announced, the Official Grand Prix breakfast is sure to be a highlight of the Grand Prix week.
“In a short amount of time the Official Grand Prix Breakfast has become one of the highlights of the Grand Prix in Melbourne and the 2014 edition will feature an incredible line up of special guests,” Westacott said.
“Attendees at the breakfast will have a unique opportunity to enjoy some world-class hospitality, while past and present motorsport greats take to the stage.
“Having the chance to hear from the likes of Sir Jackie Stewart, Christian Horner, Romain Grosjean, Mark Webber, Tony Hawk, Stefano Domenicali is a once-in-a-lifetime-experience.”
Three-time World Champion, Sir Jackie Stewart has recently been confirmed for the event and will be interviewed live on stage. Stewart is a regular attendee of the Australian Grand Prix and a big supporter of the race.
“I’ve said many times in the past that the Australian Grand Prix is one of the best Formula One events on the calendar,” Stewart said.
“Through my long-term relationship with Title Sponsor Rolex I have the opportunity to be at the Australian Grand Prix again this year and the Official Grand Prix Breakfast is something I’m thoroughly looking forward to.”
