Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit, also called Albert Park, is a racing circuit in Melbourne, Australia, and is the current home of the Australian Grand Prix.



Racing at the Melbourne Street Circuit started in the 1950s roughly on the plan of the modern circuit. Racing there ended when problems regarding racing in public parks came up. However, the circuit was rebuilt in 1996 with the Jaguar Curve looped off and replaced with the Sports Centre Esses, the Chicane on the back stretch was axed in favour of a kink, the Clark Chicane was added, and the circuit's front straightaway was moved away from the lake in the infield. The race was plagued by environmental issue that reduced the usability for the park. Despite this, racing has thrived there. Albert Park is a well-liked circuit amoung drivers for its fast flowing layout.
