Sorry for the tardy reply. I’m one of Ed’s colleagues, you are correct that we can offer balcony viewing as an alternative to the grandstands. As Asif said, a balcony gives you the advantage of much more comfortable facilities, along with other perks you may be interested in. Ed is travelling today but if you email him, ed at fugare1 dot com, he’ll get back to you with further details of all the viewing options available.
Hi Bruce ! This will be my second year in grandstand V.. It is absolutely amazing. The closest possible seat to the track with extraordinary view ! You don’t have to worry about the distance from the station.. It is about 10 min walking. I usually eat right after the race to the street very close to our grandstand named “rue Princesse Caroline” . Many places to lunch , i usually prefer a restaurant-pizzeria named Royalty.. Good vibes and great pizza after the race in about 5 meters from the track fence.. If you need something else just ask :-)
