Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix Melbourne 2017

… Our 7th year at this iconic event!

Campbell Waller, head of Event Communications for The P.A. People said: “this was another successful year, delivering the audio/comms solution for this significant event. In summary, two x 40’ semi-trailer loads of equipment, a three-week set-up, sixteen staff involved - and only one day of rain!

The Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit is built every year partially utilising public road sections around Albert Park Lake (a small man-altered lake) south of Melbourne’s main business district. In preparation for the event, work starts two months prior to the race – erecting trackside fencing, pedestrian overpasses, grandstands and other motorsport infrastructure. All infrastructure is then removed within six weeks of the final race.
