I am! Who else is going? and where is everyone sitting? I was lucky enough to get Gold tickets so I get the pit lane tours and the main straight walk on the Sunday, super excited. Third race and second in Melbourne, hoping for a repeat of last years result :)

Seeing as how I live within (long) walking distance, I'm practically there already. :)

Prost stand.

Due to a series of errors, rescheduling of events, etc, I have inadvertantly found myself in Melbourne that Sunday, with nothing scheduled ... :clap:

Budget rules out a stand, but will almost certainly get a one day GA. I haven't been able to find one on the local site, only multi day, but I found some on an o/s ticketing site :rolleyes: so I guess I will be able to get a one day ticket here.

Likewise. I'm hoping we can see the grid from the second to top row in section J. Can't wait.

That'll be my eleventh too, and my fifth time in Melbourne.

The best GA spot I found was on the hill next to the Clark grandstand. Great view of of Turn 9 from here: http://grandprixadvi...376 589x393.jpg

Beware the crowds - it gets packet very - very - early and you have access to the grandstand TV screen (located outside the picture on the left).

You should be able to get a GA day ticket from the official site grandprix.com.au.

We base our price list off theirs and single tickets have been available since April 2012: http://grandprixadvi.....et Prices.png

Just bury him there then.

I'll be there Saturday only. Much better to watch on tv these days.

That's a good spot. In the early days I'd try and get near a superscreen but I can't be bothered sitting in the one spot all day. I remember the big group of Montoya fans back in the day, always provided a good atmosphere :)

General admission for me! Besides the spot near the Clark stand, the last couple of turns can be OK too.

well I will be in Melbourne next week - but unfortunately have to fly out before the weekend...bugger

However, I will be at the Malaysian Grandprix the week after...and that's a whole lot cheaper for Grandstand tickets - especially as I bought before 1 Jan so they were half price :)
