RACE DEBRIEF

    The tram is the easiest way to get to the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit with frequent services dropping you off right outside the gates. The Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) has worked closely with public transport operators to encourage patrons attending the event to use public transport to reduce traffic entering the local area.
