[Vic] Aussie SuperBikes - Winton. 21st Aug

Discussion in 'VIC' started by Removed_User_6, Jul 26, 2005.

  1. Any one here going to the Aussie Supers at winton next month??? Weekend of the 19th-20th-21st. This is a fantastic class of racing that gets nowhere near the support it deserves. Every other country Ive been to this would attract thousands, but sadly us Aussies don't seem to support our locals on home soil. Instead we wait until they make it in the motogp or WSBK before start cheering for them...

    So come on People lets make more of an effort to support the best racing our country has to offer....
  2. how far away is winton?
  3. It's a suburb of Benalla ... about 2.5-3hrs from Melb and approx. 200km
  4. Just north of Benalla towards Wangaratta Here is a >> REGION MAP <<
  5. I will be coming back from Brisbane so I may just drop in for a view.....
  6. Suburb :shock: more like the next dot on the map up the highway from Benalla.

    As Mouth said, it's 200km from Melbourne and takes about 2 hours from the city to get there at the limit (official state speed limit not the bikes limit).

    Head up the Hume and follow the signs after Benalla. Be careful on the run home as you're sharing the road with the Volvo & Subaru drivers coming home from a weekend at the snow :roll:

    Best spot to sit is near the old control tower (white building) you can see the whole track from there and a great veiw of T1-4 on the first lap of each race. Is also close to food & the bar for some in here. [-X

    Shame the side cars aren't running there this year as I'd like to have seen the Poms in action after watching them at Eastern Creek & Barbagallo so far this year.
  7. i wil be busy that weekend
  8. Looks like a good enough excuse to do the kinglake west -> Yae road again (on the way).. :)

    If the weather's good I'm keen to ride up for one of the days (prolly Sunday).. I used to enjoy the SB racing at Barbagello so I expect it'll be excellant racing....

  9. Sounds like a good way to clear the head after the red wine night, a nice long ride :)
  10. You could even do the Mansfield - Whitfield Road as well if you're real keen :wink: and approach the track from the Wangaratta side.
  11. I've still got to find my left roo whistle and chunk of fairing so I might go and see if VicRoads have added the warning signs and dropped the recommended corner speed as they said they would on the corner I came off on.
  12. To get you in the mood, the Mallala round main races are on Ch10 this Sunday from 1-2pm.

    Before you ask, the support classes have been and gone on Speedweek.
  13. Count me in for this :)

    We'll make a day ride of it too, and meet-up in Melb for those wanting to go.

    Will be great to see Chad Turbull on his Team Dynoverks bike whizzing around the track with the Netrider sticker emblazzoned on the bike.

    GO CHAD!!!! Come on Netriders, who else wnats to come up and support Chad? :)
