EVENT COUNTDOWN

ALBERT PARK

12-15 MARCH 2015

New grandstand built and Paddock Club sold out

The 2012 Formula 1™ Qantas Australian Grand Prix is expected to be one of the most successful Australian Grands Prix in recent years as demand for Grandstand, General Admission and Paddock Club exceeds expectations one week out from the event.

The majority of the four-day Grandstands are already sold out and all single day Sunday grandstands have reached capacity. As a result, the Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) has had to build an additional Grandstand, named after Sir Stirling Moss, on Turn 1 which will provide patrons with some of the best views of the circuit.

Formula 1 fever races into Bendigo

It may be less than a week until all the action of the 2012 Formula 1™ Qantas Australian Grand Prix explodes into Albert Park, but yesterday the thrill and adrenalin of F1 was making noise some 200km away in Bendigo.

The Swisse Two-Seater F1 cars zoomed into one of regional Victoria’s largest cities, putting on a spectacular show for the thousands of locals who turned out to see the cars drive through their streets, preluding the Bendigo International Madison Criterium.

Italian background, Australian through and through

The name may be Italian, but the boy is an Aussie through and through. Just ask Daniel Ricciardo’s father.

Joe Ricciardo was born in Sicily but came Down Under at the tender age of seven. His wife Grace was born in Australia but her family hails from Calabria. Since Jarno Trulli lost his race seat to Vitaly Petrov and his Russian roubles, leaving the grid without an Italian driver for the first time since 1970, Daniel Ricciardo might just be the closest thing to it in 2012.
