Mark Skaife and L’Oreal Men Expert Team up for Australian Grand Prix

For the second consecutive year, motor racing legend Mark Skaife will compete in Porsche City Index Carrera Cup Australia as a high profile addition to the field at the Formula 1™ Qantas Australian Grand Prix.

Skaife will drive the Team L'Oréal Porsche at Albert Park, with the French beauty and cosmetics icon using the association with Skaife to promote its L'Oréal Men Expert range of men’s skincare products. Resplendent in its vibrant orange and black livery, the Team L'Oréal Porsche is set to stand out from one of the best Carrera Cup fields ever assembled in Australia.

Back for another crack

It’s an addiction.

Winning, that is, when you are a world-class player in one of the most competitive sports on the planet. And the most recent winner in Formula One is Australia’s own Mark Webber, who will line up on the Albert Park grid for Red Bull Racing once again this weekend.

Webber, who went so close to the World Championship crown in 2010, came out of a difficult 2011 campaign with the taste of success in his mouth once more after winning the final race of the season in Brazil.

It’s a bird, it’s a plane – no it’s Jet Pack Man!

Racing reached new heights at the Albert Park circuit yesterday, with Jet Pack Man launching into a drag race against a Renault Megane RS along Lakeside Drive.

With a 50 kilogram jetpack strapped to his back and powered by a combination of liquid fuel, gas and steam, Jet Pack Man propelled to speeds of approximately 100km/h and a height of 50 metres.

Ironically, it was the Renault Magane RS that got the jump on Jet Pack Man who launched upwards before propelling forward and flying up and over the Qantas overpass towards the checkered flag.

Don't Wait for Waite, almost sold out and only $310 for 4 days!

The Waite Grandstand, situated on the eastern side of the Lake at Turn 12, is perfect for viewing Formula One racing. It also provides dramatic viewing of challenging Turns 11 and 12. The superscreen diagonally opposite ensures you won't miss a second of the race. If you feel like a wander, you'll find the Golf Course entertainment areas and food and bar facilities conveniently close by. The Waite Grandstand also has un-reserved disabled seating available

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.
