Australian MotoGP Treasure Hunt | Events

How long since you’ve done a good ol’ fashioned treasure hunt?! Fred Gassit bloody loves ’em, so he’s conjured up one for the Aussie GP. It’s Fred’s dirty dozen!

Orrite you lot, I’m gonna be busy at this year’s Aussie MotoGP – Ducati has asked me to show Jorge the fastest way around the track on the two-seater, so I’m countin’ on youse to do me a couple of favours. While I’m locked in yarns with Gigi, I want to be kept up to date with what’s going on around the traps, and I want some ripper pics, too. Rather than trusting one of those bludging mongrel AMCN journos, I want you blokes (and sheilas) to do it. And the one who does the most tops job will win a grouse prize!

Look, if ya get bored and decide drinking piss in the campground is more important, or you don’t get ’em all done cos you’re a lazy cahn, still send yer entry in, cos the next bludger could have given less of a rat’s arse than you.

1 Take a photo of you and your mates trackside, ready for a weekend of MotoGP and beer. If you don’t have any mates, I won’t judge ya (much), just take a photo of yerself

2 Spot someone wearing an AMCN T-shirt and snap a pic. Yes, this can be a pic of you, but you get extra points if you/they are also wearing something else AMCN-branded.

3 In the SSP300 support paddock, you’ll find 2018 RK Chains Samurai Trophy winner Tom Bramich. He’ll be hanging with his brother Ben who is racing the #24 Yamaha R3. Ask ’em for two AMCN stickers, slap one yer noggin’ and have a photo taken with Tom, Ben or both.

4 Keep an eye out for Editor Dobie – it won’t be hard, he’s eight-foot – and grab a photo without him knowing. Bonus points if he’s picking his nose or scratching his arse. He does both, lots.

5 And if the lazy cahn is holding an AMCN T-shirt, make him give it to ya! And snap a quick selfie  as proof you scored it!

6 Have a photo taken with promo peeps wandering around the circuit. Make sure you are well-mannered and courteous and keep your hands to yourself! One bonus point for every promotional person you can squeeze into one photo. 

7 Take a pic of the most Aussie-lookin’ MotoGP fan you can find. Flannos, booze (and being able to burp the anthem) is a good start.

8 Find your favourite bike within the MotoGP Expo, and get a photo with it.

9 Head to the McLeod Accessories stand (stand No.12) at the MotoGP Expo, and have your photo taken with Patrick the mannequin who’s wearing the DriRider Vortex Pro Tour Jacket which is up for grabs.

10 While at the McLeod’s stand, find out what brands of helmet they stock and tell us one.

11 While you’re in the MotoGO Expo shed, tell us what products you found on display at stand #3?

12 Spot someone asleep trackside (passed out, more likely) and sneak a photo of them. Bonus points if you can stick your spare AMCN sticker (see task #3) onto their person without them noticing.

More points!
