  2. Who's going up for this and which day?

    I guess I'll pick the better day weather wise, which I think will be Sunday at this stage.

    As a first up suggestion, meet at Bell St Macca's (cnr of St Georges Rd) at 8am?

    What say thee?

    (oops, wonder if I should have put this in ride/event planner? I guess someone will tell me off if it's wrong :wink: )
  3. Can the powers-that-be please change the header to show Sat & Sunday.... thankyou :grin:

    EDIT: thanks :)
  4. I would love to go up and have a look see at this, but, it would have to be Saturday for me.....Easter and family stuff and all that on Sunday...

    If anyone is heading up Saturday and wants some company....

    *edit* I am going to head up there on Saturday to check it out (cleared with the Minister for all things domestic)..so if anyone else is going let me know
  5. I'd go but I don't wish to be threatened by the competitors :p
  6. I'll go as your bodyguard
  7. Are you going to head up the Hume, or go the back way through Whittlesea, Flowerdale etc?
  8. I was thinking of going up the old Hume, I could be interested in going through Flowerdale if the effects from the fires are over with.
  9. Is it free? I wont mind going for some photos
  10. took a few clicks to find the entry price.

    wonder how close to the track I can get to take photos
  11. The Speedway track is typical you are only a couple of metres from the outside edge.




    The Road Racing track is more difficult. There is really only limited viewing spots. You can see the whole track but you would need a 3000mm lens to photograph the back straight.

    This is 175mm
