The Australian Grand Prix Corporation put youth in the front seat

The Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC), along with the Beacon Foundation, has today launched an innovative workplace experience initiative called the AGPC Youth Work Experience Program Powered by Beacon Foundation.

The program, which aims to address the concerning unemployment rates amongst young Victorians, provides 15 – 24 year-old Australians the ability to gain valuable and unique work experience at the 2015 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix.

Many happy returns?

It was one of the great partnerships in F1 history – but they say you should never go back. Will the reunion of McLaren and Honda spell triumph or trouble?

How are you on vital statistics? Check these out: 80-44-53-30-4-4. Any idea who we’re talking about?

McLaren and Honda would have been an educated guess, and it would have been correct. Between 1988 and 1992 those two great names raced together in F1. They contested 80 Grands Prix, won 44 of them, took pole position 53 times and set 30 fastest race laps.

Podium Package Plus

THIS IS THE ONE to experience different view lines, action and hospitality each day.
This unique package allows you and your guests to experience all the action and hospitality in three different locations across the three days of the event.
