In 2018 Motorclassica will celebrate 90 years of the Australian Grand Prix. We are excited to announce special guest Alan Jones, MBE, Australia’s own 1980 World Driver’s Champion will join us at the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne on 12 – 14 October.
Alan JonesAlan Jones MBE is an Australian former Formula One driver and World Champion. Inspired to follow in the footsteps of his father, Stan Jones, into the world of racing, Alan Jones made a name for himself joining the Williams Team, winning four races and finishing third in the 1979 World Driver’s Championship. In 1980, he became the first (and last) Australian to win the World Championship since Jack Brabham in 1966. To celebrate his then-recent win, Jones brought his title-winning Williams-Cosworth FW07 Formula 1 car to Melbourne’s Calder Park track in November 1980 and dominated the Australian Grand Prix, having lapped the field. His father, Stan Jones, had previously won the same race in 1959 at Longford, making Stan and Alan the only father-son combination to have both won the Australian Grand Prix in its nine-decade history.
