    Yeah, technically, i'm interstate (nrth nsw). But last year vic residents only got $50 towards fuel to make the final, they had to get themselves there. I think they could only get accom for the sat night if needed.

    Dreamworld must have been booked out.

    I'm only 35 minutes away from Movieworld, might pop in.

    New deal just came up for entry to movie world etc. $68 via link and with SAVE code.

    NOTE, you need to register on groupon first, so you can put in the code during checkout and before paying. (i.e. you can't put in the code without being registered)

    I'd be shocked if they dont organise accommodation for you. Sure 1.5 hours isn't far in Sydney, but when I lived on the Goldy, anything further than 15-30mins was a big trip lol.

    What days are people planning to go to the live events?

    At this stage, just the first day (wednesday). Maybe another, not sure yet.

    I'm attempting making the trip from Perth...

    Is anyone able to confirm that we only get one shot at qualifying via the live event, or are we able to try once per day?

    Cheers!

    Last year it was TT, and you were allowed either 1 x 10 lap go or 2 x 5 laps. No idea what this year will be, or whether its even TT.

    It would be OK to have only one try if its a TT.

    But if its a race, or a series of races, it would hurt to be punted off at the first corner and then face a long, expensive, journey home! :p.

    Last year you where allowed to go multiple days, but you only had 1 chance per day. As Skywalker indicated, it was a 1x10 or a 2x5 (with a small break, if there where lots of ppl). You also had to do a quick 2 lap effort at bathurst to qual (under some slow benchmark time) to try for the silverstone 1x10 or 2x5 effort.

    Well you got away with it, but the guys running it said to me and other competitors 1 go only.

    Guess its luck of the draw.

    You did do it in different states, so it wasn't like back to back days.

    That's strange, at the GP last year, we only did 1x5 lap TT for the qualy events



    and the people who get trough to the finals are the ones who touch the center rail the least haha

    If you complete the forms, scan in the forms to you computer and send back to the email address that sent you the forms, that should be sufficient. I don't think that they would need to have a hard copy of the document, however only SCEE could comment on that. I'll be submitting soft copies of the docs for now.

    I'm sure one of the other guys that have qualified could put you down as their '1 guest'? Any takers to help out beau? (my guest might be my dad, but not sure atm) Note, you would have to make your own way there, and you also have to pay for your accom and food, and entry to movie world.
