I will google it later. (y) It was bl**dy noisy. Not my cup of tea.
Indycar series at long beach I would imagine. The Indy 500 is a historical yearly race in Indiana. It's like getting tickets at Glastonbury on a mega scale so doubting you can go on holiday and just see it casually. Anyway, I would have loved to have seen that. Fair play.
The cars looked like F1 cars. I was told by host it was Indy (something... I don't remember exactly).
The inner track is where you can get to see/meet the driver's when they are driven in and walk to the pits. Just make sure you stand nearer the entrance to the pits rather than the entrance that they come in. Speaking from experience...
Indy 500 is in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Black Friday at Silverstone £15 British touring car ticket + More (£1.50 Delivery)£16.50
Silverstone are getting in on the black Friday deals, the image shows all the deals but the £15 touring car tickets are my favourite.
Anyone know if I buy a Saturday ticket for the BTCC will I get a free Sunday one for September? I emailed Silverstone earlier but probably won't get a reply before midnight. The wording reads - FREE GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS TO SEPTEMBER RACE WITH ANY APRIL TICKET SELECTION. With any ticket selection I'm reading that to include Saturday too.
No problem. We did it a couple of years ago, great day out with plenty of action (y)
Thanks for posting. Will be giving the touring cars a go for the first time.
Agreed. Over the last 20 years i have been to the British GP 8 times, including as 'VIP' (as a corporate guest), in grandstand (several years at various parts of the circuit, also as a corporate guest), and most recently this year via general admission (which i did pay for). Had a great weekend there with the family, camped nearby from Thursday afternoon to Sunday, and for 3 of us (including my son, who didn't have to pay for entrance due to age) the whole thing came to about £500 plus food/drinks. On the Friday, general admission lets you into the grandstands, and on Saturday/Sunday this year we didn't have any problems getting somewhere to sit with decent views. The good thing about general admission is that over the weekend you can try different track views, but if you have a stadium seat you probably wouldn't want to move around [for the F1] due to how much you have paid for the seat. Personally, I had the best time this year vs previous years, but each to their own. Get somewhere opposite one of the big screens, take a FM radio for the commentary (don't bank on mobile signal, it's congested pretty much all weekend), take an umbrella just in case, and you get the full F1 experience with the cars just in front of you. We're going again in 2020!
Yeah going for one day really isnt worth it, definitely need to make a full weekend out of it.

Silverstone is a high price indeed but you are getting three days of entertainment for this. The main event is of course the 90-120mins on Sunday but this is a three day event with things to see for most of all the days including a concert and driver signings etc etc. Compared to a champions league game it’s actually relatively good value. But yes as an up front cost it’s a hell of a lot to swallow.
Yeah I have to agree I have to agree with you there! Ive seen a couple of BSB races at tracks around the UK and had a great time but for the whole family at this price!
Uncovered. You will either burn or get soaked.
It's a different experience...yes you don't get a view of everything happening around track unless you can see a big screen, and yes often by the end of the race you have no idea where anyone is in the standings. What you do get is heaps of atmosphere, and a much better sense of the speed and of the effort the drivers are putting into it. I tend to go for the experience, then go home and watch the race (y)
I honestly can't think of a worse place to watch a F1 race than at the circuit. Now you have the option of watching any view on Sky, I think I'll take that.

If anyone has a Spare Pit Walk Sessions they can no longer attend please let me know! Was too late to book them and missed out! :(
Does anyone know much about the site? Ie is it picnic friendly or do they expect you to purchase food inside? Is the car park very far from the site?
Yes looks like when they asked you to specify how many tickets it was most likely to give them some idea of numbers. No mention in the terms on the ticket you cant just print the same one off 50 times. Pit walks are for three sessions during the day and all sold out apart from 5pm-5.45pm.
Yeah the email says print the required amount
I requested for 4 and only got 1 PDF ticket
