Australian GT Championship

Back by popular demand, Australian GT returns to the 2018 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix for Round 1 of its new season.

It marks the first time the Australian GT Championship has started its season at the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit, and the first time the GT3 cars are joined on track by GT4 machines.

With up to 30 exotic GT3 and GT4 cars from some of the world’s most exclusive brands on track – including Ferrari, McLaren, BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Porsche and Lamborghini – the Australian GT field, worth over $30 million, is the largest Level 1 category in Australia. 

Two qualifying sessions will allow for two-driver combinations to set a time for their respective races. The first qualifying session is for professional drivers, while the second session is for amateur drivers.

Four sprint races over the weekend ensure fans get the opportunity to see these exotic machines on track as they commence battle for one of the most prestigious championships in Australian motorsport.

When this amazing machinery is not out on track, you can get up close and see these rare cars at Coates Hire Supercars Central in the General Admission area.
