If it's overtaking you want, then the start-finish straight / Turn 1 is best... it's one of the few places you'll see it happen at Barcelona. It's a pretty poor circuit for overtaking. Which is why DRS is essential there. The 2011 race was the best in ages.

Turn 10 (at the end of the straight after Campsa corner) is another decent spot. :yes:

Not to break your heart since I know you're still on a euphoric high from winning the pool, but the Spanish GP this year already passed. It was back in May! Talk to your brother, and his girlfriend, about going to next year's Spanish GP. :wink:

Very excited for you!! Are you going to the Spanish GP (catalunya) or European gp in Valencia? Neither are my favourite races but I certainly wouldnt turn my nose up at the chance to go to either. Cant help with whetee to sit but thye websites for the tracks are usually helpful, the Sulverstone one certainl is...with video cams from some of the grandstands.
