Notes: My first fly-away event as a kiwi marshal. Only 3 hour by plane the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne was a fantastic experience where I met a lot of people I had previously met at Singapore GP in front of whom I fell flat on my face while responding to a debris run during the race. Not literally but it was an embarrassing experience that showed me I still had a lot to learn. I returned the following year to redeem myself. The event is held conveniently close to the CBD walking distance from public transport.
