Australian F1 Grand Prix comes to Town

Big crowds expected at the Aussie Grand Prix

The Australian Formula 1 Motor Racing Championship marks the beginning of the Formula 1 calendar. It is held in March each year and No Fuss Event Hire is proud to partner with the City of Melbourne to produce the worldwide spectacle that Melbourne is now famous for. It was the 22nd time Melbourne had hosted this much anticipated international event, with Sebastian Vettel standing as the 2017 winner of the race. Can he do it again and will we see Aussie local, Daniel Ricciardo, up on the podium too?

Catering for the crowds

There is a great deal of planning and preparation required to host such an event of this size, and keeping everyone happy during the race is paramount, especially when you see the history of race day attendances:

  • 2010 – 305,000
  • 2011 – 298,000
  • 2012 – 313,700
