    Newcastle V8 Round or Bathurst 1000

    Looking to do a weekend trip away with the boys.

    None of our weekend away gang has done a Bathurst, or went to Newcastle in '17.

    I get Bathurst seems like the logical choice for a piss up weekend, but thought I might ask if anyone did Newcastle this year - is it worth considering as an alternative to Bathurst?


    Going to replace the annual Summernats Trip, which has been deemed, not worth the effort.

    Note : Bogan element not really important.

    As a matter of fact, I stated this year that Newcastle was probably the best round I'd ever been to, and that includes 5 Baffests.

    Plus, if you're gonna make a weekend of it - beach is right there. Plenty of places to eat. Karts. Heaps to do.

    Where-as Bathurst = pubs. .......

    I was there working, so not as a spectator.
    Atmosphere was great, location was great - would go again.

    I was, however disappointed by the pubs we went to... have to pick better ones next time.

    cheers

    I agree with the above statements, Newcastle felt like a real race round like it used to at indy before they fucked it. Great atmosphere. Not sure on the nightlife as I was working though but it looked pretty good from afar.
