I dont wanna sound like a whinger, but getting out of Eastern Creek was a bloody joke. I know there were a tonne of cars there and it has a bad reputation already......but sitting on my ass not moving for 50 mins kinda gets a bloke thinking.
Luckly I had a holden fan mate next to me I bagged the hell out the whole time.
How about you did what you said last year Eastern Creek Raceway and address it.
I agree, all the race tracks I have been to in Aus are a nightmare to get out of with a big crowd, but just think about that for a minute.
All of these venues would be lucky to get a croud that big twice a year, maybe 3 or 4 times in the case of Bathurst. I just don't think the money will ever be there to do the sort of upgrades required.
I must admit I was in the outside carpark (the sign looked like a bus park actually) and I was out of there and on the M4 in about 15 minutes. I was quite impressed :)
Falcon Killer (if you believe what Ford Service Departments have to say about me)
AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....
45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
Maybe you guys should consider hanging around till a bit later to see the other events like the Carrera Cup...I know the MGF Trophy is pretty average but thats the time to go down to the paddock and have a look around....the security is normally off the entrance to the tunnel so you can get in without paying for a pass. I had a great time after the main race and got a few signatures and photos with guys like Lowndes and Johnson then drove straight out the gate at 5pm. What a great day out! :)
