Don't let us have the opportunity to say "We told you so" if Bernie pulls the plug :p :wink:

Well, the dilemma is money, tickets are still available, but i don't want to sit at Copse (the cheapest stands left, no GA) yet Stowe is a good 220 quid... sod's law would blatantly strike too if i didn't go to this race at Silverstone, cause no doubt it would turn out to be the last one!

Crazily enough, i dreamt i was at the GP last night, which is why i've been looking into it today. :P

I was under the impression that the Copse terrace tix (the ones I've got) included GA - the extra cost was for the privilege of the option of going in the reserved terrace, rather than as a substitute to general admission.
On the Silverstone ticket info thingy it says "includes access to venue" which I interpret to mean general admission. As opposed to "we let you through the doors".

Or have I musunderstood you? :P

Sorry, I'm a bit of a GP virgin (my second time, first without parents)

No no you are correct, Scotty means the Grand Stands at Copse, not the General Admission or Terraces. Your ticket includes General Admission.
