The Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) has been busy gearing up for the return of international motorsport to Australia. We would like to thank you for your support of AGPC and the Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix and provide you with an update regarding the timing of next year’s event.
AGPC is working closely with Formula 1® and the FIA on the inclusion of the Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix on the 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship™ calendar.
We are pleased to inform you that the event will be held in its traditional March timeslot in Melbourne and will be announced as the season-opening race when the provisional calendar is released in the coming weeks. The exact date is yet to be finalised, but you can plan with confidence that the event will be held in mid-to-late March.
Our Grand Prix is synonymous as the season opener and we look forward to delivering an event in March 2021 that will form a significant part of the recovery of the major sports and events industry in Victoria. The landscape for staging major events has changed and we’re working closely with health authorities and the Victorian Government on sensible, flexible, adaptable, modular, and most importantly, COVIDSafe plans for welcoming fans to Albert Park.
In the meantime, stay safe and we will provide further updates, including confirmation of 2021 event details and information regarding tickets and on-sale dates, in due course.
