The Adelaide Grand Prix book currently in production has been granted copyright clearance to publish images from the archival library of the Australian Formula One Grand Prix Office.
The image library includes an estimated 60,000-plus slides in 169 boxes covering the entire span of the Adelaide Grand Prix, from the track build in 1985 to the closure of the Australian Formula One Grand Prix Office in Adelaide in 1996.
The depth and breadth of the archive will provide invaluable material to the Adelaide Grand Prix book in production.

The image archive was handed over to the State Library of South Australia following the closure of the Australian Formula One Grand Prix Office.
Many of the images have never been seen before and will be a focal point for the Adelaide Grand Prix book.
The time in digitising the slides will dictate the production schedule for the Adelaide Grand Prix book, though we continue to aim for a late 2020 release to coincide with the 35th and 25th year anniversaries of the first and last Adelaide Grand Prix.
