This thrilling Formula 1 race will be held in Melbourne on 15 March this year and promises to be an extra special tournament on its 25th birthday. It’s fabulous events like these which make memories for many Australians, and even if you are not a big motorsports fan, it’s important to be involved.
Here at The Hamper Emporium, we are already giddy with excitement and planning our weekends around the race. So here are our ideas on family hampers and party hampers that will increase the sense of luxury and occasion!
A Touch Of Australian History
The very first Australian Grand Prix was held way back in 1928. With worldwide coverage, it is now probably the most prestigious and popular race in the Formula 1® drive. Melbourne is, of course, host to an extensive sporting calendar, but this is one of its largest. Over 300,000 people flock to the Albert Park Circuit for the breathtaking spectacle which plays out over 58 laps and a 5,303 km track. Sunday, March 15 is the date in everyone’s event diaries!
Some Of Us Are Even Lucky Enough To Go!
For most of us, the glitz and glamour are enjoyed at home, savouring the atmosphere with beer and party hampers or catering for a family get-together. Some are lucky enough to get in on the action, with ticket options for most budgets. The F1 experience hosts general admission, grandstand seats and exclusive hospitality suites. From a low-key to a lavish day out, it’s an absolute must in the world of racing. Avid fans normally opt for the Grandstand seats, with a fantastic view of the action hotspots and the ability to move around in the stands.
From watching the fastest cars in the world to listening to international music, there’s also much to explore off the track. The atmosphere and excitement of just being there are unmatched if you love motor racing. There is an impressive entertainment schedule, and the chance to bring home much-coveted souvenirs and signed merchandise. Melbourne brings together the very best food, live acts and entertainment, together with the opportunity to test your driving skills on racing simulators. Sights, sounds and smells all rolled into an electrifying sensory experience and a spectacularly atmospheric event.
