:yes: the F1 cars are just AWESOME live.

A bit pricey for us :hehe: ive got some broke mates who are gonna have to save through their bottom for this trip already :D

Fair enough. I've done my time in GA :thumbup: :hehe: . Village A is sort of a mid ranger, I prefer Beckets but that is a lot more expensive for a bit better view....and with the current new lay out, village A is VERY close to the party venue :D :D :D
I still have a couple in my party owing me for the tickets :rofl: :rofl:

Ps. If you're hard up, DON'T buy the camping with the tickets. Camp at Windmills, Its basic but it's the cheapest and the nearest to the track. :wavey:

By the sounds of it, it's more like; If you're hard up make friends with RC, and she'll buy the tickets for you...... :yes:
