AiR NZ  flys L A , auckland to adelaide , about $850 . Adelaide being the closest State capital to the lake . Once in Adelaide you will probably be able to ride to the lake with DlRA members and even borrow campgear etc .

Post here your interest and you may be helped . I have already hooked up withone gent ,  huh and are glad to help .

$800? Can I get a lakester into my carry-on luggage? shocked

Qantas, yep, they won't have a problem with that until you get to the gate. Then they'll wheel out a six foot three woman who they poached from a Siberian labor camp to burn holes in you with her eyes who'll then announce to the assembled travellers that the plane has bee delayed because of your baggage, then the baggage handlers will crush it's into an 18x18x12 and they'll charge you $145 per kg, no I'm not kidding.

From our experience last year:

Traction - we had good traction.  Our 1000 hp 68 Camaro ran 243 at Bonneville in 2012.  It ran 249 at Lake Gairdner in 2017

Road into Lake Gairdner will beat the heck out of equipment.  Be prepared.  Tie everything down, especially in your camper.
You are so far in the Outback, there is nothing but flies out there, but plenty of them.

wishing everyone fast and safe runs. To Marlo, Les and crew hoping everything has been fixed and you get a great record. I know the Freud wishes he could be there to take photos. We are all waiting for any updates when you start runs.

Any updates may be slow in coming. One of the things about Lake Gairdineer is that it's about 70 miles from mobile phone and internet. There a landline at the racers camp. And a pay phone at the station.

Hey Graham, what is the phone number at the race station... my guess it can be used for emergency contact for racers....

From when I went down there in 2004
Mt. Ives Station (08) 8648 1817
Fax: (08) 8648 1811
These should still work.  I can't imagine the pace of technical updates is too rapid out there.

Those phone numbers are correct Jim. To call from the USA, the country code is 61, the steps are:

1. First dial 011, the U.S. exit code.
2. Next dial 61, the country code for Australia.
3. Then dial the area code (1 digit).
4. Finally the phone number (8 digits).

So the whole number for Mount Ive Station would be: 011 61 08 8648 1817

Here's their website, bit of history of the region on one of the pages, if your're interested...

PJQ, your description doesn't add up with the numbers for me. On the area code you say 1 digit but your example is "08". Not trying to be a butt. I just want to be sure because I'm heading that way.  cheers

You drop the 0 from 08 if adding the 61 

Be aware the phone at the racers camp is in one of the sleeping quarters , if a lot of calls come in at irregular hours it could become disconnected

Also one of the racers is looking at getting a Sat wifi for live tuning, so there is the possibility of better communication this year
