During the race weekend..

Post by 0458 »

At the German GP....

Do any other races other than Formula 1 happen on track?

I know that at monaco there were other races going on, and apparently there is at Silverstone according to people on this forum.

Is this also happening at the ring? Theres nothing specified on the website.

Is it like a thing to keep the spectators happy, or a real race to do with another championship that just happens to be on the same day as the F1 GP?

Shed some light!

Thanks :thumbup:

You got any links?

I've been to the GP2's site, seen the calendar & times for the races, Nurburgring site seems to be weird,

I can get to the calendar and F1 page, then it stuff's itself up :irked:

Anywhere else I can find some more info? :)

I miss the days when a BTCC race used to be part of the F1 support race schedule. :(

Should I expect to recieve a program guide with my tickets, or at the actual event, that should list all the support package times shouldn't it? :D
