Yeah mate, its a full 4 day program at Albert Park. In the past on Thursday there has been Practice, Qualifying and Race 1 for the minor support categories which has been heaps of fun. But this year there seems to be a few more supprt events so Thursday only going to have time for Prac/Qualifying - still lots to see and do though. What it means is that Friday, Saturday, Sunday is non-stop racing!!!
Support Races - v8 Supercars, Australian GT, Aussie Racing Cars, MINI Challenge, Formula Ford, Formula 5000 ... and also, Historic Demonstration, and The Ultimate Speed Comparison

And also on Wednesday afternoon "GP Advantage" ticket holders (loyal fans that book tickets 6 months or so before the event) get a huge session in pit lane watching the F1 teams setup the garages and cars. Drivers are interviewed and sign some autographs for the fans ... Its a really great way to start the weekend.
