    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!

    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 ?

    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!

    Added you Mark. We’ll have to organise some sort of Rendezvous point for everyone to gather.

    hello everyone!

    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!

    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.
