“It is really exciting to relive iconic Formula One moments throughout the years, especially before this year’s Australian Formula One Grand Prix celebrations,” said, Jacqueline Taylor OAM, Curator for OzLink Entertainment.

The pinnacle piece of the exhibition will be a spectacular MM Holden Special vintage racing car, which was previously driven by John Anderson, winner of the Alec Mildren Trophy. The MM Holden Special car has a very close connection with Albert Park, having run its first race lap in the 1953 Australian Formula One Grand Prix.

“As a corporate partner of the McLaren Mercedes Formula One team, Hilton Hotels & Resorts continues to hold a strong heritage with the Grand Prix circuit,” said Brett Christ, General Manager of Hilton Melbourne South Wharf. “The hotel is delighted to bring the global excitement to Melbourne through this unique and free exhibition.”

The free exhibition has been installed within the lobby of Hilton Melbourne South Wharf and is available to view by the general public.
