Ive booked my tickets. Last week. Huge price increase! And strange things going on with the seats in Bridge. Only a few available on the 3 day ticket, the rest race day only. Ive been given different stories each time i phone them. Im going to write to find out why the price hike My mate had to book cos i was out the country. (140 last year 220ish this year!!) Anyway its a good feeling to know its booked specially as it might be the last one. THEY CANT TASKE THE BRITISH GP AWAY MOW LEWIS IS CHAMPION!!
So who else is going to Silverstone now?

I, unfortunately, will not be attending races next season. Quite simply, the price of tickets have gone from terrible to absolutely insane (thanks, Ecclestone :rolleyes: ) and flights over etc. are also too expensive. Anyway, I hope you enjoy yourselves should you get going. :)

I have a three day ticket for Bridge , same place as last 4/5years. But huge price hike and less 3day seats available for some reason. Great viewing spot though.

I really want to get mine booked soon, knowing my luck the Hangar straight will be sold out by the end of the month. :(

I'll be camping again, hoping that I don't freeze to death like I almost did the first night, although I think that had something to do with the amount of Racechick's wine I consumed. :P

I'll probably try and make the final gp at silverstone. And yes, camping is definately where it's at!

What would people recommend - GA or 'Roving Grandstand' tickets? (and which corners are these at?)
