Welcome to AdelaideGPrix.com, where we celebrate the Adelaide Grand Prix from 1985 to 1995 and its impact on South Australia and motorsport.
We are currently working on a book project to celebrate the event in an upcoming publication, due for completion in late 2020.
Adelaide’s Grand Prix – 1985-1995 – The Glory Years tells the story of how a city awoke from its slumber. Of how Adelaide managed to attract one of the biggest sporting events on the planet, with a year-by-year account of the on- and off-track action and more. There’s also an honour roll and records for a definitive reference book.
This book will fill a void in the marketplace. At present, there’s no publication currently in print that details the history of the event in Adelaide.
The book’s projected readership is extensive, particularly the hundreds of thousands who attended the event. A Facebook page created to share Adelaide Grand Prix memories (@AdelaideGP) has already attracted 7000-plus likes.
The Adelaide Grand Prix book project has also been granted copyright clearance to publish images from the archival library of the Australian Formula One Grand Prix Office.

The team behind the publication is led by Adrian Musolino, who, like many South Australians, fell in love with motorsport in the grand prix era. Since then he’s worked as a motorsport journalist and is currently editor of SupercarXtra Magazine.
