If you enter and exit from Langs Rd, no traffic.
Park up at the pokies, no $20.
I guess once out of Flemington, the real fun starts. There's the crawl along Racecourse Rd through Newmarket, across Flemington Rd and up through Royal Park, the Zoo etc etc until you finally get to the Eastern Fwy. Never again if I can help it. The Sunday traffic is often worse than during the week.

Agreed. I head in the opposite direction and so have never had the joy.

The AOMC are.. Supporting the Lions Club "Licola Wild4 Youth Program".

The VRC, the ones taking your $20 parking fee, I believe are supporting just themselves.

I hear it on good authority that next year's All American Day will move from Flemington to the Yarra Glen Racecourse and be held on April 15th.
But, will wait for the flyer to be certain.

I also hear that there was some dissatisfaction and now a backlash toward the VRC over the public parking fee.
If so, the VRC can suck arse!

Also hoping that the event chooses a weekend that doesn't clash with other shows (ie Marcus & Isabella) and sticks to it.
This show has moved around several weekends over the passed few years.

Totally agree with Steve, the parking fee is wrong , I had taken my family as a spectators and was charged the ridiculous, greedy parking fee the year prior refused to go this year besides my cars are in restoration , I have been going to Flemington since the 80's and never had to pay parking fee.

Yarra Glen is a good venue, they had run GM days there years by.
And make the event date not clash as Steve said too many other events on.
