Bargain. How good is that, last time I was at Hammo it was $55.00 per night if you could get in. I am sure it has gone up since. One could enter and if not race oriented put in a few DNS and do a few at the tail of the fleet.

Wow!!! This is exceptional value! Assuming things haven't changed it would also include sausage sizzle at the conclusion of each days racing and ice for the beers (I would say "free" but I guess its included in entry)

Kind of makes Geelong look a bit silly for charging trailables $375 for 3 races....

To any of you lucky people going to Hamo for Raceweek from Melbourne via the Newell, South of West Wyalong is Merrill. (blink and you will miss it)Free parking (power available $10.00)and showers but they do like you to buy a meal from the pub.
Ten of us on our way up to the Avan National gathering at Casino stayed there and ate at the pub. Highly recommend an overnight there.

I'm think Audi have withdrawn sponsorship.
Will be interesting to see how it effects hirw.
Gotta love those sausage sangas, and the girls who collect the garbage !
