Australian GP boss visits Budapest

Steven Wright, the acting chief executive of the Australian Grand Prix Corporation, was present at the Hungarian GP. It is anticipated that he will soon be named as the man to replace John Harnden.

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.
