    Im going too Craig, flights and hotel booked too.
    and to the question of why its pretty simple, Sun , Beach and F1 for cheap in a City with night life. Plus the euro 2012 quarter finals will be on whilst we are there.

    fair enough, sun , beach etc, however it doesnt take much working out that the race will be a borefest and a challenge anyone to say otherwise!

    Can someone tell me – looking at the circuit M7 looks attractive, if it faces across the bridge down towards N2. Or does it just sit facing the corner towards M6?? In which case it sees very little.

    Any info on stand choice appreciated.

    So we have finally booked tickets with GooTickets, have to wait till last week of May, first week of June for delivery so until we actually have them in our hands we are little nervous. We noticed that tickets are selling out with various sites in particular M6. We decided to go for 3 days for M6 as well as P3 for quali on Saturday and N4 on Friday just so we have the option to move round. I hope this is actually practical due to the nature of the circuit you can’t simply walk around it, but we have all day to get round if we decide to. We were waiting due to the contract negotiations which are still going on but felt it was worth the risk as Bernie appears to be in a negotiating mood if Korea stories are to be believed. Still I’m certain we can get our money back if they cancel if not from Goo certainly from the Credit card company.

    We are flying out Early Thursday morning from Gatwick so we can have a good look round on Thursday to get our barings.

    Be great to meet up with any Fellow Brits going over

    I am going to the race, looking out from grandstand M4. I only booked about a month ago so not optimum grandstand, but I haven’t been to a race for 5 years and it will be good to get up close to the cars. I booked through the official F1 website – I have to collect the tickets from some office near to the circuit.
