I did a 2015 Thread and a 2016 Thread.
based on my lack of knowledge for my virgin trip also.

Search for Both of those named Bathurst 2015 etc etc
and you will see the similar questions I asked which you
might be looking for, otherwise PM me and I can give you
my email if you have anything specific you want to ask.

Otherwise most guys here are happy to help.

Grandstand ten puts you somewhere near where i sit. Sorry

Great place to sit though, without knowing your seat number you should have a good view down pit straight and of hells corner and even some of mountain straight, should be a big screen to your left and all the ford pits will be in front of you

Its a bit weird the way it works. Thats the good end for corporate area, but the bad end from the top teams in pit lane.

Just the design of the track I guess

Supercars Corporate Viewing seem to be over the Mid to End of the Pits

The High End Teams PRA/888 and Co have their own Corporates ONTOP of their Own Pit Garages. Im sure they all have their own corporate viewing but some may not be directly above their pit bays.

Eitherway I dont mind

You're up the back, we are down the front.
I know the Track maps you can download are only a guide but what you say lines up with my thoughts regarding the big screen. If we find ourselves lined up close-ish to the DJR pitbay I'll be very happy.

I read Sandgropers Bathurst 15 and 16 Threads - some good info there and reading them again was like returning to the time....I obviously read them as they were being created. Was great going thru peckstars great moments. Looks like I'm in for a wait though before I can act on booking anything more than what I have done.

At this stage, my dad, uncle, brother and I will be heading down for next years race.
It will be our first V8 race, (brother and I have flown down twice for the 12hour) this time we're driving down, massive trip for us, have never done anything like it, will be a huge trip and hopefully a memorable one!

Sounds like a blast Chris, Just the drive from Sydney Airport to the Track is a good one for us so yours would be a massive trip.

sounds awesome, We do a similar distance to get the Bathurst (although its freeway most of the way)

I recommend not arriving at 2 am, just ruins you for the rest of the weekend and makes the trip home long as well

You will notice the significant crowd size in comparison to 12 hour, and as result, much less access to places, even things like finding a place to sit is much more difficult. as long as you are prepared for that you will have a ball

Tip for any newbies going.
Purchase the 888 RBR Bathurst Event Membership for $109 and get the shirt, lanyard etc but you get the pit tour as well and for anyone who is going to purchase a shirt anyway this is worth paying for just to get the pit tour or in the Bull Pen on which I have viewed on 3 occasions.

just a thought

$109 for rag? sounds expensive

Prodrive offered a similar thing at the 2017 bathurst for ford fans
