Public transport is ok, everythnig goes there on the day, no waiting, getting home is harder, leave early and get a cab.

we left last year on saturday at 5ish (pre qualifying) and it took over 30 mins to get a taxi back to chapel st

public transport is excellent, tthe best I've ever experienced.. and it's FREE to ticket holders...

it doesn't get any better IMO.

best way to get a decent GP weekend... si to enter and race a car... MUCH cheaper than getting a corporate suite...

just buy a ute/mini/GT/Porsche or whatever support category suits your fancy, and race it... get tickets galore, catering, parking on site or nearby... all good!

taxi/car etc all stuffed, quicker to walk


I have a mate who lives nearby, who gives me his resident permit to park, so I can get right up close to gate 1 somewhere in a side street... but you have to get there early am, before 8, and don't try to leave before 4.30.

Even then, they put bollards up etc and I have to mount the pavement to get into where I want to park... luckily little Getz is skinny!

Cant remember what time we left but just kept walking till we found a cab, was easy really but you have to leave early enough.
I've only been once I was gobsmacked, also loved the pace car, the sl black was just brilliant :eek:
The pace car is really pushing it and the race cars behind it are just cruising, that's when you realise how fast they are really going.

So it sounds a few of us should be able to catch up for a dinner/drinks/breakfast?


Assuming people would want that? :P
