Hi all, I will be going to my home grand prix for the first time. I have my tickets, but will probably have to go alone. (F1 isn’t hasn’t really caught on in central QLD yet!) If anyone else wants to participate in a meetup sometime during the weekend, that would be fantastic.
Post with details or suggestions!

we had a meetup last year (and the year before!) on the saturday, i’ll probably try and organize it again!
once we know everyone’s arrangements/timetables we can start to work it out!
there’s a tonne of F1F’s going to the GP anyway.. there’s a high chance that you’ll end up sitting next to one!12th January 2012, 12:14 at 12:14 pm #188480
I’ll also be going alone so to catch up with fellow F1 junkies will be a treat. What stand will you be sitting in Arkay ?14th January 2012, 13:10 at 1:10 pm #188481JackParticipant
This is my first gp alone and im comiing from UK to watch it, as im travelling Aus for 6 months, im really up for a meet up (make sense??) Are you all grand stands though, im only doing general admission most people say its better anyway.
Also anyone got any ideas for a local backpackers?16th January 2012, 0:27 at 12:27 am #188482
I bought 4 day tickets for the Fangio Stand though that’s just an option. What days do you all arrive in Melbourne, as I’m not too keen on walking around alone for the whole weekend!16th January 2012, 2:39 at 2:39 am #188483
Jack, I have booked a dorm bed at space hotel for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. FYI16th January 2012, 3:50 at 3:50 am #188484
@rkay, I arrive in Melbourne on the Tuesday so I can do the pit tour on the Wednesday and then spend Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday in the Jones Stand on the outside of Turn 1.16th January 2012, 4:23 at 4:23 am #188485
@Macca, Im possibly staying with friends in Bendigo on Wednsday, and will be driving into Melbourne Thursday morning.22nd January 2012, 0:02 at 12:02 am #188486KristianParticipant
I’m in Melbourne now so will be there all weekend. Is the pit tour on Wednesday then? Damn I might miss it if I’m working…30th January 2012, 9:45 at 9:45 am #188487shoemakerMember
How do you get tickets for the pit tour??13th February 2012, 6:49 at 6:49 am #188488Mark KearonParticipant
I’ll be arriving into Melbourne on the Saturday morning, flying in from Cairns QLD! I’m staying at Urban Central Accomadation Cheap Backpackers place near Town theres a Tram link outside apparently so booked that for Two Nights as my flight leaves early Monday morning, It be great to meet up! I’m a McLaren nut so would be nice to meet some people have have GA Tickets like me who’ll wanna vary around the circuit during the race! Add me on Facebook if you like, – Marky26413th February 2012, 10:15 at 10:15 am #188489
Added you Mark. We’ll have to organise some sort of Rendezvous point for everyone to gather.15th February 2012, 10:29 at 10:29 am #188490dufftownallanParticipant
I too am going it alone, its my first ever gp and I have four day tickets for the prost stand. I didn’t realise there was a pit tour on the Wednesday, will be going to that if I can.
so, like everyone else I wouldn’t mind meeting up with some people with a similar passion for the sport! what about designating a particular turn on the race track and a specific time for meeting up? the only trouble is finding a way for us all to denote who we are!15th February 2012, 21:51 at 9:51 pm #188491
Sorry, the pit lane tour is on the Thursday morning.16th February 2012, 5:15 at 5:15 am #188492MikeParticipant
I’m 80% sure I’ll be going, more than interested in meeting up.
Going with some mates so, I think, slightly unfortunately we’ll be going for GA.
