TitleRoad accidents and the grand prix
AuthorsFischer A, Hatch J, Paix BR
Year1986
TypeBook Chapter
AbstractThe First Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix, run in Adelaide on Sunday November 3, 1985, attracted a great deal of attention. Most of this related to the immediate spectacle and the potential the, event had for tourism, and development in, South Australia. One of the less publicized aspects of the Grand Prix was its possible effect on driving habits and accidents. Belatedly a series of letters to the Adelaide Press during January and February 1986 and responses by staff writers reflected this concern. Loosely, various people saw the possibility of a causal connection between the 1985 Grand Prix and the relatively high road death figures for South Australia in the latter part of 1985. Clearly there may be a connection and it is this possibility which we wish to explore.
