Friggin hell aready?

Might go General Admission this time round, having your own un-jostled seat and a view of a lot of track with a tv screen is good, but you can get soo much closer in General Admission and there a sweet spot " i discovered" on the old pit straight that gives you a lot of cartime, and it has a screen.

I found General Admission to be rather good when I went this year. Spent Saturday trying out various spots, before settling for Copse corner to watch the race on Sunday. Turned out to be a great choice. Saw Hamilton fire past Alonso in the early parts of the race, right in front of my eyes. :eek:

Dunno whether I'll be going next year. Not enough pennies in the kitty. I'm poor :(

Half a pound of treacle.
