Geeks on a Plane 2: Nerds Down Under - WTA Day 0

by Martin Gonzales

 

Just a few weeks ago Master Nerd Kojima dropped a completely unexpected bomb on Jeff and I, "Uhh...you guys need to go cover World Time Attack and stuff..."  My initial response, "HELLS YEAH!!!"  Images of koala bears, kangaroos and a specific line from Dumb & Dumber surrounded the thoughts of the uber fast cars confirmed to be at Eastern Creek Raceway.  After reading all about World Time Attack last year, I could not believe I was actually going to be there!  Sure there was a laundry list of things we needed to take care of before we could even think of taking our trip - pshhh, no problem!  Right?

Our purpose for attending the World Time Attack this year is to bring you the most comprehensive and up to the minute coverage out there!  Competition at the 2 day event will start this Friday 8/5, though some of the teams have already arrived and will be dialing in their setups on Thursday.

 


Since we still have a couple days before competition starts, and you seemed to like our Eurotrip 2010-Geeks on a Plane, come spend some time with us as we bring you along on our trip and give you an inside look at the posh and lavish lifestyles we have grown accustomed to here at MotoIQ  ;)

Our limo service (aka - Jeff's girlfriend) picked us up at MotoIQ headquarters - fully stocked mini bar FTW!

 

 
Pre-flight libations - CHECK!

The perfect pre-flight combo for the horrendous 7,500 mile / 14 hour flight!

Looking forward to the coverage guys! Super stoked that we'll have a different outlet for coverage, and probably BETTER coverage, than SpeedHunters.. Not super excited about their coverage from last year. I know you guys can do better! :-)

And you guys are just alot cooler than them anyways. So that's a bonus! LOL

The best part is that the twin beds are close enough to be pushed together. That might make for a more comfortable night's sleep.... Nothing like a good man spoon to catch some zzzz's.... eh Martin' ?

Looking forward to the coverage.

Don't go for the burgers in Australia- go for the meat pies and sausage rolls. Don't forget to pay the 20c for the sauce.

If you need any translation services, let me know. I am fluent in Australian, and New Zealand.
