The Celebrity Challenge was once a fixture of the Australian Grand Prix weekend, pitting local and international stars against each other in a field of identical cars around the Albert Park circuit. But while the past couple of years have been without the event, this year marks its return.
When the F1 race weekend takes place late in March, a field of 27 celebrities will race against each other in the Lexus CT 200h. No word yet on who will be racing this year, but the event not only marks the first time Lexus has participated in the race, as well as the hybrid hatchback's debut in the Australian market, but also – according to Lexus – makes this "the first hybrid-only race staged globally".
