Although a temporary
installation, the Albert Park circuit is unlike any other, set in a beautiful park around a huge artificial lake to the south of the
city, and the organisers have mastered the art of providing excellent facilities overnight.
The Australian Grand Prix circuit
winds over roadways around the park and is a good combination of high-, medium- and low-speed corners, including a couple of
chicanes and several overtaking areas in braking zones.
The Albert Park circuit has been used before, for six years in the
1950's, and was the venue for the Australian GP for F1 cars (but not part of the F1 World Championship) in 1953 and 1956, when it
was won by Stirling Moss in a Maserati 250F; it also ran international Formula Libre and Touring Car races. In its modern guise,
Melbourne has proved to be as popular as Adelaide with the Formula 1 teams and fans.
