First Time at F1 & Need Advice

Post by scousers on tour 2008 »

hi i have followed f1 for many many years and now at last have a chance to go.

I am a liverpool fc supporter but this season have given up my season ticket and decided to go to at least 2 possibly 3 races.
this may not seem a lot but its a little bit more expensive then going to the match but i need a little help.
you only get what you pay for in life so what can i expect from a basic admission ticket compared to a grandstand?
i am locking at going to 2 to 4 of the following 6 races and need some advise on what part of the circuit to go to?
BARCA, ISTANBUL, MONACO, CANADA, ITALY AND GERMANY
any help would be great

Going to Silverstone last year was almost as cheaper as match ticket and travel to go to Chelsea away. :P

So would I, but this Goverment cant be trusted. Taking "brown enveolpes" etc. The Rally of Ireland was a great example of how much of the people here love motorsport.

I can only dream......

it would be great if an f1 track was made here.i've been an f1 fan for about 6/7 years (since i was 10) and i've never been to an f1 race but would love to.if a track was built here in ireland i could be able to go.the only track we have here is mondello park and that just a track in the middle of a field with no grandstands around it.
