Melbourne started hosting the Grand Prix in 1996, so that would make sense.
BTW, what is it with "route 69"? 😯 (rhetorical question). I remember arriving in SFO in late 70s and riding the W2 up Market Street towards Castro. As soon as I commented that I used to commute on these, the volunteers' first question was "is there a route 69?" I said yes, I lived on the route in Glenferrie Road. Next stop, route number and desto was changed 😃.
