The Australian Grand Prix II was the third round in Season 2, which took place on April 30th, 2017. This race was contested over 29 laps at the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit in Melbourne. This marked the second time the Australian Grand Prix took place in LRL. Last season's winner was championship runner-up trapter1, who won from pole position.

This race is notable for causing significant controversy surrounding new drivers, and was the victim of severe connection issues that saw most of the grid fail to finish the race; only 5 of the 13 drivers would make it from Practice to the chequered flag.

Lyracrish won this race after starting in 7th place, with FlyingFinn866 and Jpoole28 completing the podium. This was Lyra's third LRL win overall. Championship leader TOR PePsii could not attend this race.

Trivia Edit

  • Despite FlyingFinn866 moving to Ferrari afterward, this race does not count as a 1-2 finish, as Finn was driving for Force India during the race.
  • No drivers new to Season 2 finished this race; all finishers were Season 1 alumni.
    • In addition to this, only one driver per team finished the race.
  • This was the only Season 2 race without a Toro Rosso finisher.
