You're right. That's what it costs. MUCH better value to get a three day grandstand!! Not much over £200 for three days!! But I guess persuading her to go for three days will be more difficult. Oh persuade her! She'll have a ball!! PARTY!!!

Two grandstand tickets = £400! She'd rather spend it on stuff for the house...

a three day GA is £165 last time i looked - thats £330 all in. And a Sunday GA is £145 - thats £290.

We are on holiday until Saturday anyway.

You're way too organised.
Got here today and got everything set up before the rain started. Been over at the track for the sky f1 show.
