Are all GP's like this?

Post by albertz33 »

Hello Folks,

I was lucky enought to get tickets to the Turkish GP, While it was a great experience, it was somewhat marred by the dreadfull transport layed on, the busses were plentiful yet we all had to que for ages just to be packed like sardines onto these deathtraps, the cost varied from day to day, and the journey back took 4.5 hours, the country road leading to the track from the motorway was clearly incapable of dealing with that level of traffic, are all GP's that bad? I was also surprised at how far away the track was from Istanbul, its not even in the same provence! Are the drivers on some kind of deal to get as many on as possible? Leaving site on Sunday was farcical, there was no obvious system in place, people didnt know where to go or que, Turkish efficiency, now theres an Oxymoron ( or whatever its called ).

Still the Turkish dancing girls layed on by Coke Zero and Vodaphone were cracking!! :hehe:

At least there was buses laid on this year.

To be fair every grand prix I have been to has been much the same.
