Fans took in a unique pit straight walk this morning

A large crowd of today’s Advantage ticket-holders were given the special opportunity of a pit straight walk when the Albert Park circuit’s gates opened this morning, ahead of this afternoon’s 2012 QANTAS Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix in Melbourne.

Several thousand spectators were given the unique opportunity to take in today’s pre-race atmosphere, with many snapping photos and video footage along the way.

These are a selection of the pictures we took from the International Media Centre, which overlooks pit lane and the start/finish straight (click on each to enlarge):
