My friend and I are going to Spa in August and we haven’t bought our tickets yet. Reading previous posts it seems that Eau Rouge, Bus Stop and Gold 2 are the best seats. Do you need to buy a particular ticket to be able to meet the drivers for photographs and autographs? We will be there on Saturday and Sunday!
Any advice would be very welcomed, thank you very much :)
I don’t know about Spa specifically, but I’m assuming they have a merchandise park like Silverstone. I’d urge you to keep your ears open to announcements because sometimes the drivers appear at these merch stands. I was a jammy bugger and happened to be in the right place at the right time when Anthony Davidson signed a load of autographs when he was the third driver at BAR. Also lucked into seeing Schumacher and Barrichello muck about in some sort of simulators/racing game Vodafone had rigged up. Keep your ears open and remember to get there early!
Thank you very much for your reply, I really appreciate it. After what you have said I will keep my ears open and I will also try and find the merchandise park, thank you.
I do think a lot if it is right place, right time and trying to be a jammy so and so like yourself! ;)
Thank you once again,
I went to Spa last year and sat at Eau Rouge. If you want to meet drivers for autographs and pictures you will need to head to the track on Thursday afternoon for the pit lane walk. In the past this was free to enter with a valid weekend ticket. If you haven’t bought your tickets yet I would def recommend trying to add Thurs and Friday to your experience as there is heaps of cool things to see and do.
Thank you very much for your message, I really appreciate it.
Great Thursday it is!! We will certianly spend the day around the pit lane and we do have a 3 day pass so it is a bonus that it’s free!
Thank you again :)
If your going have a great time too!!
to queue for the pitwalk you need to be at the La source entrance (it is the only entrance open). And don’t forget if you have weekend tickets (usually 3 different tickets one for each day) then you need to take ALL of them with you to be let in……….
I find the crush too much so i tend to just wander about and take photos ……..
Can’t wait- tickets arrived last week but got Goodwood to look forward to to get me in the mood!
Just a quick question – we have been to loads of grand prix but 1st time going to Spa :-)
Can you take your own food and drink into the circuit or do they search and take it off you (like most do)?
Also is there an official drivers signing session or just the pit walk?
Thanks for your help x
