Moto GP, Philip Island

Very excited about going to the Moto GP in two weeks. Just a quick shout out to see if any other HU folk are going to be there?

I'm going. Booked a space for my tent at the Gap Road Campsite - walking distance from the track, full breakfast and dinner provided and a good bar with reasonable prices.

Cheers

John

That sounds pretty good Jon, i may end up wishing i'd done that. Im booked in to the circuit campground. Other than an outdoor cinema each night i don't know what they've got going on but i can't see it being anyways cheap, if its anything like an event in the UK prices for food, drink etc will be a joke. Still i may only be ever be at the Aussie Moto GP once im my life so im gonna try to enjoy it regardless

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
