Australian F1 Grand Prix 2018

Experience the thrill of the opening round of the 2018 Formula 1 Championships in Melbourne.

Once again, the Formula 1 Championships kick off in Melbourne in what is set to be one of the closest seasons in years. Will Mercedes, with the dominant Lewis Hamilton at the helm, take first blood on the Albert Park circuit? Or will be it be Red Bull or Ferrari? Perhaps there may be a surprise packing in the form of the ever-improving Renault team that will stake an early claim for the title? Whatever happens, you can catch it live & in person with SPORTING TOURS.

Kiwi interest will be extremely high with the developing Brendon Hartley beginning his first full season in Formula 1. There is also the addition of a full round of Supercars, meaning the Kiwi trio of Coulthard, McLaughlin & Van Gisbergen will be on hand to add even more bang-for-your-buck.
