Yeah, i'm going over for it, and it would be good to go for a meet/cruise with the melbourne guys.


Phil - I should be able to travel with you, depending on what time you are planning on leaving.

Is the FPV thing a day thing or over a few days? I am interested in coming down, but im from Bairnsdale (300km east of Melbourne) so if it is over a few days, i will have to organise accomodation...

planning on leavin adelaide early-ish friday morning, coming back on the monday.
kryzak- the actual fpv day is on the sunday, but goin by the some of the other forums/threads (BSRcorp, fpvtc, etc etc) there should be a fair bit of cruisin goin on saturday/saturday night. one of the guys goin in my car wants to check out the laid low customs shop, and iwant to have a look at the melbourne motor show while i'm there, thats why i'm goin for the whole weekend.

Hmm, OK. Where abouts are you staying if you have any idea yet? Sounds like it will be worth the travel...

I'm leaving friday morning too.

We need to have a lot of cruises while we're over there too hehe.

Where is everyone planning on staying? I'm staying at a mates house in Hoppers Crossing, which is apparently not too far away from the FPV factory.

Aaron,

Hoppers Crossing is a nice spot (near Werribee) but it isn't too close to the FPV factory, being just off the main road to Geelong. Still the run to FPV via the Western Ring road should not take more than about 40-50 mins depending on the time of day.

A number of cars from our club (some leaving Wednesday before, some on Friday) will be going over. Maybe we'll see you there.

Have a good run.

Cool, thanks for the info.

What time are you guys planning on leaving on friday?? If you are leaving in the morning, we could all travel together. Because as they say, 'Safety in Numbers'.....

ummmm..i was planning on going to the motor show...but....ummm..i cant go to melbourne at all now :( another car has come up and i'd be the biggest dumbass on the face of the planet if i didn't grab it. so all my dosh is being thrown in that direction, cancelling all chances of me making it to melbourne.
but hey, theres always next year... and when you guys see my new beast you'll understand... heheheeee
