Discussion in 'Racing, Motorsports, and Track Days' started by Crafar, Sep 1, 2006.

  1. Greeetings netriders,
    Crafar and friend are riding from Syd to PI leaving Thur getting to PI on Fri lunch(fingers crossed) a couple of questions from a novice GP goer.

    we are camping trackside and was wondering if its a free for all set up anywhere or are there marked out sites for pitching ya tent.

    Im on the Twin so luggage consists of, rider and stubby holder, anything Im missing? tips hints or must haves whilst there.

    Is there anyone else a camping from NR , like to meet and swap war stories? tried to search but not worky.

  4. Hmmmmm....... i am sure Flipper can give you some pointers. This year will be my first time to. Not sure how i will go drinking nothing but beer for five days. :grin:
  5. still not sure about my accommodation for GP this year... if it doesn't go ahead then I'll b camping too :? :beer:

    Looking at going down to PI on Friday and back home on Monday... :grin:
  6. Hello Crafar,

    I also have a penchant for faggy Italian sportsbikes, so I would probably pack the following:

    Coffee plunger and favourite machiatto glass.
    1 Pair of underwear.
    Stubby Holder.
    Credit Card.
    Aprilia breakdown service membership.

    You have now run out of luggage room on your bike and will have to resort to sleeping in tipped over wheely bins in your leathers.

    You'll have a tops weekend.
