    Hi all,

    Attending my first GP on Sunday in a group of 4. We have GA tickets so no allocated seating.

    We are based in Solihull and will probably drive down on the morning in 1 car and we have tickets for the P&R at Hilton Airfield off the M40.

    I have done a bit of research on the forums and it would appear that the best place to try and get position to watch the race from would be near Becketts – any opinions on this?

    I have also read lots about making sure we get there early to grab a position. If we were to set off from Solihull to the P&R with a view to getting there for approx 5am and then getting transferred to the circuit then would we potentially still be able to get somewhere at Becketts or would it be a better idea to start out at 2-3am and arrive at the P&R earlier?

    Also, when people say that the areas are packed if you get there late does this mean that you cannot even get a view if standing or does it just mean that you are unlikely to be able to get a pitch to put your chairs near the front?

    Would people recommend getting in early and setting up a position for the race and then going on a wander around for the rest of the day until near the GP start?

    Many thanks in advance for any help!

    Cheers
