Hello to everyone who's going to be attending the Melbourne Grand Prix this week. There'll be a meet and greet at the track on Friday after 1st free practice at 3pm. The meeting place is a park bench near the pontoon bridge. So if you're crossing the pontoon bridge heading towards the F1 paddock area, the park bench is just to the left. So far attending will be myself, Gerry Nassar, Mat, Bumper, KLN, and Smithy. Feel free to join us. ;)

:wave: Give everyone my best!!!!

I'll be deep under the English channel going through the EuroTunnel while sleeping on the tourbus!!!
Then booting up my computer USB freeview tuner and praying to the digital terrestrial gods when we hit Folkestone....not very glamorous, is it?

Well it was great catching up with everyone as usual and seeing a few new faces too. There was Sith, Gerry Nassar, Mat, KLN, Smithy, Full Monty, Clipper, myself, Pilla and Pac, with a few mates here and there added.

We took a few pics, I forgot to pack the usb thingy for my memory card so can't transfer the pics onto a computer right now, have to wait till I'm back in the UK tomorrow but perhaps someone else will/can put some up if they have any pics they would like to add.*

xx

* I mean suitable pics, not the ones where we're all wasted at Pete's Bar :drunk:

Great to meet Smithy, Pac and Pilla (again) :up:

Smithy and Pilla - where did you watch the saturday sessons from? I didnt get back to the same Advantage bar and didnt have your numbers. Though I trust you had a great time.

Half way through the race I was daydreaming and found myself staring at this beautiful woman. I was thinking to myself she looks familiar and then this annoying guy stepped on my foot. It came to me after the race that the beautiful woman was Bumper and the annoying guy was Sith. gerry nassar was sitting next to Bumper?

Actually wondered around the track most of the day Saturday. Watched the start of the race from the Advantage bar though. A really good spot, had Kazuki starting a few metres from where I was standing.

Really appreciated the chance to meet up with the incredibly helpful Atlas locals and everyone else who flew in for the race!

Enjoyed having a chat with Gerry, AdrianM, & Mat. Fantastic to finally meet in-person Bumper and KLN who offered suggestions when I was trying to work out my plans. Just all around great people.

Special thanks to Sith for organising things over the weekend. The man is legend.
