Hi everyone! This is my first post here and what a great forum! I’ve been lurking as l was doing some research into going to the Canadian Grand Prix before booking anything and there is some great advice here. I’ve been to three GPs, Silverstone twice and the Spanish GP in 2006. All three were great races and l don’t think anything can compare to seeing and hearing the sound of a F1 car!
We booked our tickets to the Canadian Grand Prix and l’m already very excited! We are sitting
in Grandstand 33, row E, seats 1-3. I am assuming that we are sitting on the edge of the
grandstand? I chose that grandstand as we can see the cars breaking for the corner so we’ll
get a good view of them and the TV stand is close. I was looking at Grandstand 22 and 34 but
it seems pretty busy there and we’ll have our daughter with us so l don’t want her to feel
overwhelmed. I was thinking of just getting general admission tickets because we have a child
but it would be really frustrating to travel all that way from Scotland and not get a decent place to
view the track.
I am still in shock about hotel prices, we paid £700 for three nights in the Days Inn!!! It’s close to the metro station that will take us to the circuit so very central but we had to drop a night
due to the price. We are flying to Toronto for a wedding then going to Niagara Falls and we are
driving from Niagara to Montreal!!! We are stopping overnight somewhere in the middle to break up the journey.
Really looking forward to the GP! I hope it will be as exciting as in previous years!
