I really do hope one day motor racing goes back to the old days.  Grab a car from the showroom, put in a cage, a racing seat with harness, change the suspension and go racing.

Do what we did and start your own series.

In the "good old days"- put in a cage, a racing seat - this was unheard of :D

lol. :D

You'd have to agree though, good improvement.

That's the reason why I gave away club racing, doing 200+kph without a cage etc was just an accident waiting to happen.

prob go to bathurst, quite a few cup challenge rounds on the same week end at the same track with GT, prob do cup challenge, easier and more fun. though doing GT at clipsal and GP is tempting

Me and goobs live trackside :D

I can't comment on the quality of places as I've not often stayed in a hotel here, but try for something north-east corner of the CBD, you won't have much reason to go anywhere west of Pulteney.

The Hilton and Hyatt are both good - but are 15-20mins walk from the action - and it's a good chance there'll be a day or two over 35, and if you're stumbling back post midnight the areas are a bit seedy.

There's the Majestic which is right near the action and looks like a semi-swanky place just walking past: http://www.wotif.com/hotel/View?hotel=W9722&page=1&viewType=all

Clarion I've never really seen - but I think Beama stayed there a couple months ago, that's also very close: http://www.wotif.com/hotel/View?hotel=W60013&page=1&viewType=all

The map - distance between East and West tce is 1.6km - King William is half way, try not to go any further west of KW: http://www.wotif.com/search/Advanced?selectedSuggestionId=&viewType=all&startDay=&searchTerms=&country=AU&region=13&destination=3617&accommodationTypeMatch=&roomTypeCategoryMatch=&starRatingMatch=4&maximumPrice=&isoCurrencyCode=AUD
