Track of The Month – March & July 2020

Albert Park – Melbourne, Australia

The Race Centre’s Track for March and July is the Albert Park circuit, located in Melbourne, Australia. It is for March AND July due to the fact that COVID-19 meant that for most of March, April, May and June we were temporarily closed. Hence the extension into July.

Albert Park is a 3.3-mile street-circuit and has been ever-present on the Formula 1 calendar since 1996. Renowned for it’s a mix of fast-flowing corners and tight, technical sequences, Albert Park has always been a real challenge for drivers. Known recently for being the opening found of the Formula 1 championship its the first time the spectators get to see all the cars together fighting for position. This makes it one of the most exciting events of the season.

Come and see for yourself this month at The Race Centre.

Take a look below for a flying lap of Albert Park with Aussie hero Mark Webber!
