Just registered on the site. Myself and the girlfriend have bought 2 tickets in K2 (high) for race day this year. Super excited already and the season hasnt even started yet!
We are staying in Nice and will be getting the train through and back but we were wondering what the best time to book the train tickets? Also is there much to do before and after the race? Ideally we would like a few drinks, some food etc but unsure on what the setup is.
Are you just going for the race day on Sunday or for the whole weekend?
I grabbed my programme for last year and the timetable for Sunday was as follows:
7:00 Closing of track to road traffic
09:45 – 10:15 Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup Race
11:10 – 11.55 Formula Renault 3.5 Race
12:30 F1 Drivers Track Parade
14:00 Grand Prix de Monaco
19:00 Opening of track to road traffic
So…. …a pretty busy and full day – it’s worth remembering that it’s not just F1 – you’ll probably do well with drinks following the Grand Prix at one of the Monaco bars. You should have no problem there!
Buy your tickets a day or two beforehand to save queuing on the day.
Don’t worry about a party atmosphere afterwards, as soon as the track is cleared it is opened and you can stand at Rascasse corner with a beer in your hand. Or you have yacht parties, lots of restaurants, bars, etc. etc.
If you need help with recommendations just let me know.
