Motor Racing

Motorsports is one of the most popular spectator sports in Australia. Australia’s first recorded motorcycle race was held in 1901 around the Sydney Cricket Ground. In March 1904, the first four-wheeled cars race took place on Sandown horseracing track near Melbourne. And the first Australian Grand Prix was held at Cowes on Phillip Island on a dirt and gravel  6.5-mile circuit back in March 1928.

The most widely watched motorsport today are the V8 Supercars, especially at the Bathurst 1000. Australians have had a long love affair with cars and racing that continues today.
