Can you buy access to the Grids?

Post by killem2 »

When F1 hopefully comes to Texas with the new track it will be a chance for me to try and attend. I was curious though can you buy access to the Grid?

No. You either need a contact or some sort of hospitality package. Maybe some of the team fanclubs provide something? Driver accessibility is very very difficult in F1

The nearest thing I think you can buy is a pit lane pass.But that was a few years ago ,if you can still do that or not I'm not sure.

Wondering myself, i remember Silverstone quali wehere there were a bundle of upper-middle class looking parents with kids all crowded oppurtunistically round the commentary team. Thought maybe you can.

If it were commercially available id spend a years earnings on it. Nothing like being in the friggin pit lane!

My colleague an old dear at work said shes sat with piquets car in the 80's in the pitlane, shes a huge fan of his, might ask her how she got to be there. But she got an autograph and a picture taken with his car.

If you're trying to get access, it helps if you're a super hot chick... are you a super hot chick? If you're not a super hot chick then it helps (although not as much) if you are in the company of a hot chick, *SUPER* hot would be even better.

So that's two things you don't have access to... do you have access to large amounts of cash?

You're making it very difficult to get you access to the grid!
