After this we headed on for Melbourne and stopped at the nearest campsite.
The next day we headed straight for Melbourne, it only took us a day and a half to get there which is pretty good going seeing as we were taking our time.
Sunday, the day of the Grand Prix, we were all very excited of course. Got there roughly about 11am, three hours before the initial start and had a good walk around. We saw plenty of modified Cars, Bikes and lots of Giveaways. Once 1pm came, we decided to get a good spot for the race and found a Bar/Restaurant on one of the chicanes, an excellent place to be. From then on we drank all day.
The Grand Prix was awesome, it contained speed and sound i have never experienced ever, the cars had so much grip, couldn't quite believe it. All i can say is if you get the opportunity to go to one, then do it. After the Grand Prix was over we decided to go on a ride called 'Sling Shot', i normally wouldn't go on these things but the beer helped my confidence and i thought why not. Was a strange feeling but no where near as bad as i thought it would be, brilliant!
The next post will be about our trip up the Coast.
Keep you all Posted.
