Unfortunately not.... these are nationals and I don't have a race number and license yet.
Been advised to take part in some club events first before trying nationals  ;D

Just going to watch and take notes  8)

Look at reply # 130. Its the start of the guinea fowl trail at the bottom of Hawthorne. Bikes are very quiet. We practice and warm-up at the parking area by the pump station and those people in the houses accross the river don't hear us. I stay just accross  Circular drive in the pic.

ah ok saw the pic, but couldn't work out the suburb  :thumleft:

P.S. With that info I was just able to peer over your neighbours face brick wall onto his pool from my computer  :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:

Out near magalies... see PDF map attached
The co-ords are for the turn off onto the farm. From there follow the jeep track until you find the cars.
