Here's where I stayed last year.

The drive down each morning was very pleasant.

Which tickets should we buy?

Up for discussion. Last year I bought a 4 day ticket but didn't use the Thursday. I added grandstand access which was certainly worth it. Also supercar parking which was right next to the entrance and an event in itself. Also, we have weekend access to the McLaren hospitality which was superb - food and wine all day long with guest speakers etc. Not cheap but I loved it as a sanctuary from the crowds. I guess other manufacturers will also have hospitality. I'd be happy to do it exactly like last time - it was such a perfect event, but I'm also open to suggestion.

I was telling the guys last night that McLaren offered an optional helicopter ride down from London each day. I preferred the drive from Basingstoke, personally. :p

Thanks Mark,

I am happy with McLaren, Ferrari or even Porsche.....

I agree that a corporate scenario would be great too.

The Porsche one was much larger than McLaren which was very upmarket with a really nice setup. I didn't see anything from Ferrari but there might be something there.

When did you want to finalise this??

I think that we should jump onto this and the accom sooner rather than later.

Flights wise, I can get a flight from Adelaide on 20th June which suits me, probably stay in London for 1 or 2 nights then down to Goodwood.

BTW - I will back in Melbourne on Tuesday morning and then will be in Adelaide all day Wednesday, so if you want to catch up over coffee I will be around.

PS - I am currently on a United Flight from Orlando to LA and the WiFi is amazing full high def youtube vids and no dropping out.

Australia is so far behind!!
