Where is the Public Entry Gate?
All spectators will enter through Gate 4. Simply follow the signs posted all around the surrounding streets. If unsure – check our General Map below before coming (click to enlarge the map).
Where do I park my car?
The WTAC staff will direct you to the nearest parking area, simply follow the directions from the security staff.
How to get to the Pit Area?
Okay, obviously this will be your first port of call after parking your car. Walk back towards the grand stand, as you approach the grand stand you will notice signs pointing to an underground tunnel. The tunnels runs under the main straight and emerges on the other side of the track. Walk up, turn right and voila – you’re in the Pit Area! See the detailed map of the Pit Zone, Motul Legends of the Turbo Era and MotoGraphics Show’n'Shine below.
I want to sample some trackside cuisine…
WTAC is a long event so we made sure there’s enough food and beverage stalls to keep our spectators fed and hydrated. The main canteen is located right in the middle of the Pit Zone – you can’t miss it – look for people sitting down, sipping coffee and scoffing burgers. There are also additional foods stalls along the Pit Carports (where the drift cars are parked) and in the Show’n'Shine area. But if you want to dine in style you have to check out the brand new ARDC Garage Cafe located in the first suite on the left, directly above the pit garages.
Best viewing spots.
Now we’re getting down to the nitty gritty. Eastern Creek has a number of good viewing spots, most regular spectators recommend the side of the hill directly below the main parking area which offers a good panoramic views of the main straight along with Turns 9, 10, 11 and 12.
The grandstand offers seating and provides a good view of Turn 12, the main straight, Turn 1 and 2 and the rest of the track in a distance.
One of the favourite viewing spots for the Time Attack spectators last year was the roof of the Pit Garage building. It offers a great view of Turn 11, 12, the main straight, Turn 1 and 2 and by turning around you can see almost the entire rest of the track. It is also very close (just walk down the stairs) to all amenities and the Pit Area.
For Drifting, head out to Turn 11 and 12 (up from the grandstand and past the public parking area) and look for the Tectaloy signage. If you position yourself slightly up on a hill behind Turn 12 you will have a clear view of the entire Drift Track.
Where the bloody hell are you?
If you’re lost or can’t find the exhibitor or display you’re looking for, head down to the World Time Attack Central – in front of the Radical building. We’ve got maps, exhibitor listings and can point you the right direction. We’ll also try to sell you a commemorative T-shirt, cap or a hoodie, which, we can unashamedly say, all look bloody fantastic!
Things to remember:
Gates open to the public at 9am both days. (Plenty of tickets still available for both days)
Public Entry is via Gate 4 unless advised otherwise.
Racing starts at around 9am. Drifting starts around 5.30pm
There will be a live commentary throughout the event, but if you want to get the most up-to-date times, head over to the WTAC Central and check out the times on our big telly.
We’ll be doing frequent updates on our website to head over to www.worldtimeattack.com. We’ll also have live timing on our site so you can stay up to date with the pecking order. For the best coverage it’s best to follow us on Twitter and Facebook as we’ll be posting updates throughout both days.
And last but not least…
Enjoy yourselves! It takes almost 8 months of hard work, stress and sleepless nights to put on an event of this caliber. It’s not an easy task but on the day it all comes together and we want nothing more than to see the teams try their hardest and happy crowds cheering on their favourite teams. That’s what motorsport is all about, that’s what World Time Attack is all about. Enjoy!
The World Time Attack Team
