    Anyone ever done the F1 experience?

    Looking for some tips/info/advice etc on going to an Formula 1 event.

    Would love to hear from people that have done a similar thing and there various views and opinions of how I should go about it.

    Something that I have always said I would do.

    Would love to go to one at any of the following places:
    Spain, Monaco, Turkey, European(Valencia), Germany, Hungary, Belgium or Italy.

    Seen some deals on Thomas Cook wbesite, but just wondering what peoples opinions are on going for the 3 days etc, and whether you can organise travel, hotels and tickets individually which I would imagine would be cheaper than the likes of a Thomas Cook package.

    Cheers

    considered the british gp?

    Go to Spa -- by far the best F1 circuit I have been to... just take an anorak

    Have done the British GP, it was great, except it rained all weekend and everywhere was a mud bath. Very expensive too. We camped in the Silverstone site but the facilities were not great.

    We now go to the BTCC, about £30 for the weekend and the action is great. If it rains, then you've not lost too much money if you decide not to go, and kids get to go free.

    I would seriously consider the Touring Cars instead :thumbsup:

    dont go to hungary for f1 most boring race on the calendar lol

    good points

    but f1 is one hell of an experience ive never been to a race but have seen the renault f1 car go around silverstone during the world series, to see one of those cars go around a corner is something else the cornering speed is just ridiculous and of course the sound is awesome.

    I can only imagine what 24 cars look like coming through the becketts complex on the first few laps at silverstone must be awesome.

    Don`t actually follow it to be honest. Used to love it but not now. Just that I always wanted to go to one but was too young and parents couldn`t afford to take me. Now I feel I`m at a good age to go and have some cash burning a hole in my pocket so why not..:;-)
