Comment of the day
Ged is thinking of going to the Hungarian Grand Prix next year and has a few questions:
On the Thursday are you allowed access to the track? Is there a pit-lane walk for ticket holders to get drivers autographs?
On the Friday are you allowed access to all stands, regardless of your actual numbered ticket for the Saturday & Sunday?
I?óÔé¼Ôäóve been to Monza in 07 & 09 which was great for allowing both of the above, but Valencia in 08 on the other hand, was very restrictive.
