        Thanks

        do we still need to get a ticket for kids under 12 or can we just turn up with them and they can get in?

        That was pre 2014.. No days these cars make as much noise as your vacuum cleaner..

        • +3 votes

          Nope, they are certainly quieter than before but kids would definitely still need earmuffs/earplugs. Especially since the V8s and Supercars which go around earlier are as loud as ever.

          @Devils Advocate:

          Agreed. Beyond all this macho talk, they are still loud, just not as loud as before.

          And yes the V8 supercars which also feature are just as loud as they've always been.

          I suspect the people saying f1 cars are quiet are the same ones i see each morning blasting their ears to dysfunction on the train.

          They might not be as loud now that they are only running V6's (official websites state 134db over sites state over 100db) but it would still be too loud for children without ear protection, after all you wouldn't want to take your children only to have them crying with a headache and have to leave and miss the race (a child's hearing is a lot more sensitive than adults).

          Why the all negs??? I'm just trying to give people a heads up so that they can take their kids and have a great day, even the V8 super cars are bloody loud.

          @BigglesKDH:
          134 db if you stick you head in the engine. Being 100m meters away the sound pressure drops quite significantly

        • +1 vote

          I used to hear them from my office 10km away.

          This year I struggled to hear them from my house 500m away.

        •  

          @Roary: At 100m distance from 134db the sound level is still 94db - still quite loud, obviously these new cars are no where near as screeching as v8's, v10's etc of old F1 so the sound level isn't as painful and is most likely more low end rather than high pitched.

    •  

      out of curiosity: is it "Safe" to bring kids to a F1 race? Wondering about the noise of racing F1, might hurt their ears? Nope?

      • +1 vote

        There are free earplugs you can grab from the information booths, and make sure you slap on the free sunscreen they have as well. Do that early though, as the earplugs do run out.

      You might want to bring a tennis umpire chair along for the kid.

    What are the chances of a flight deal coming up soon? Just checked flights from Syd and it's almost $1k for 2 adults and a child!! What the?

      its 9 months away so there will surely be something in that time.

      Drive? 8 hours and then you also have wheels while in Melbourne.

        I'd swap the F1 with the Tour down under (TDU) any day. TDU is cheaper to run and brings in more money for the state. I don't get all the South Australian's complaining, cause if they hadn't lost the F1 they wouldn't have been innovative enough to start the TDU. Good on them for that!

    Are the John PLayer Special lotus still racing ?

    Anyone want to go halves in 2 tickets before this expires ?

    Thanks OP! Will be my first GP in over a decade!

    Thanks bought. First GP ever. Only bought the Sunday race, is Saturday really worth it?

    • +1 vote

      Saturdays great you see everything.
      F1 practice + Qual. lots of F1 race time + V8 Races.
      TBH I think Saturday's better than Sunday.
      Fridays not bad either 2 F1 practice sessions + V8's.
      The V8 Super Cars sound amazing there are a few spots at the end of the straight where they back up nicely.
      I was lucky enough last year to get given a corporate ticket middle of the straight. Found the Sunday race a bit boring. Tho did get a tour of a V8 garage that was neat.
      I probably had more fun two years earlier with my 2 year old son G/stand seat on the Friday.

        Thanks mate, I'll have a look into Saturday tix if they go on sale again :D

    Did anyone get an email about joining their gold club for buying a 4-day pass? I only bought one day… Seems strange.
