Everyone is getting excited at the thought of the Australian Grand Prix, now only days away from the cars getting out on the Albert park Circuit to begin their first official practice session of the 2017 Formula One season.

However, before the Scuderia Toro Rosso boys get out on track, they have another exciting thing to do, and that is to take part in a time trial challenge in St Kilda.

Together with sponsors Casio, the team will undertake a press conference and time trial challenge this coming Wednesday at 1:30 pm.

The event will take place at the Stokehouse on Jacka Boulevard, St Kilda and we here at Zero throttle will attempt to bring you all the news and pics from the event as soon as they come to hand.

The race is coming guys! It’s so close we can almost smell the burning rubber!
