The day after our very exciting visit to the Australian premiere of the SENNA documentary yesterday, the action won’t stop for the Richard’s F1 team today.
Our choice of accommodation also happens to offer a very good view of the Albert Park Grand Prix circuit, and I can see much of the second-half of the lap, including that wonderful Turn 11/12 switchback. I’ll post some photos later today.
But for us, a visit to Melbourne would not be complete without a trip to Melbourne Sports Books, an institution in the city’s central business district, which has the most incredible array of sport titles, including an enormous volume of motorsport titles on their shelves.
On our last visit, we purchased 45kg (99lb) worth of titles, and had to ship them up to our office in Sydney, many of which have been reviewed on our site.
If you’re in Melbourne and haven’t yet paid them a visit, you’re definitely missing out. They also have a website (not showing all titles in their collection), which can be found by clicking on the banner below:
We’d love to know about your favourite sports bookstores where you live. If you have a recommendation, post it in your comments below…
