Australian GP boss visits Budapest
Harnden was recently named to head Melbourne's Commonwealth Games organizing body leaving the sensitive Australian GP event without a chief executive. Wright, a lawyer who joined the organization in 1996, was named as a temporary replacement while the local government went through the necessary process of advertising the job. It is expected that Wright will soon be named as Harnden's permanent replacement.
Wright's visit to Europe will also include a visit to the Czech motorcycle Grand Prix next week. The organisation also looks after Melbourne's bike Grand Prix at Philip Island.
