The 2013 Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix is expected to be one of the most successful Australian Grands Prix in recent years say race organisers, as demand for grandstand, general admission and Paddock Club tickets exceeds 2012 levels with just ten days until the Melbourne event.

Grandstand tickets are selling fast and to meet demand the Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) has built an additional World Champion Grandstand, which will pay tribute to current title holder Sebastian Vettel and provides spectacular views of Turns 3, 4 and 5 at Albert Park.

And in a clear signal that corporate Australia is investing in premium hospitality, the race’s Paddock Club facilities have also been expanded to meet demand.

“No one stages a Grand Prix quite like Melbourne and this year will be no exception,” commented Ron Walker, AGPC Chairman. “Being the first race of the season, there’s a tremendous sense of anticipation and excitement which never fails to translate into an exhilarating event for all.

“Breathtaking images of our city, its beaches and the bay will be broadcast to millions of viewers around the world when they tune in to watch the opening round of the 2013 FIA Formula One World Championship at our picturesque street circuit.”

The 2013 Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix takes place on March 15-17. To book tickets and full travel packages to the event, click here.
