Which GP would YOU reccomend to watch?

Post by SCHUEYISDABEST »

Seeing as this young German chap is coming back onto the scene, i wouldn't mind going to watch one of the European GP's next year. Thing is i have no idea where to start! I can find all the "corporate" info but, Which GP have YOU been to and A) Was it good, B) would you reccomend it and C) any other random bits of info!

(I intend to either camp or stay in a small hotel, driving from the UK, but distance isn't realyl an issue!)

So your a Vettle Fan then yeh?

I'd go for Spa.

best circuit on the calender.

I've been to Hockenhiem was very good but if i was going to go to a race again i'd go to Spa.

Have to agree with Spa.Although as a Schu fan I would guess the German GP would be a great atmosphere. :hehe:

Thank you for the responses all! Yeah a Vettel fan indeed, i mistyped the usernamd 8-) :D

I am waning to either the German GP, Spa or Hungary. Spa seems an obvious choice, Schuey loves the place and it does seem a super event. I went to the ring in 04 for the GP which was ace, but i haven't been to hockenheim so maybe..!

Considering the line up this year, you would be mad not to go to Spa. I recently weighed up the costs between Monza, Spa and Monaco (been to the British GP the last 2 years) Spa is an expensive weekend..but is at at the top of my most desired GP list, for sure. I have had friends who have been who cannot fault it as a track, for race action and atmosphere.

Factette: If budget is an issue....Turkey...although if its not this year I believe you will be sitting alone after that.
