Formula 1 fans heading on holidays to Australia should go to Melbourne this week if they want to take part in the celebrations surrounding the Australian Grand Prix.

Held from March 26th to 29th at the city’s Albert Park, the event features a host of stars from the motor racing world, including British ace Lewis Hamilton, who will be hoping to defend his title.

Meanwhile, spectators will be able to enter a competition which will see one of them get to ride in a real F1 car on the track.

In 2008, over 300,000 people attended the Grand Prix, which Tourism Victoria calls “one of the jewels in Melbourne’s high-profile events calendar”.

The city was recently given the right to hold the Australian Grand Prix until at least 2015.

According to the official Grand Prix website, tomorrow (March 24th) will see the Gears Up event being held in order to introduce all the drivers and get the city ready for the race.
