Hi. We are heading over to the Spanish Grand Prix in May. My boy will be 6 then and is fanatical about F1. This will be his 1st race and our first grand prix. We have general admission tickets for the 3 days – 2 of these cost £92 with an extra £10.50 for booking and posting charges. My boy is free as he is under 12 which is good. I thought £207 for the 3 of us for the weekend was good value compared to teh very expensive grandstand prices.
Can anyone tell me if the general admission weekend ticket gets you in on the Thursday ? If so can anyone give us details of the times and what happens on the Thursday as my boy will love to get a close up of the drivers.
Also, is it true we can get into the grandstands on the Friday with a general admission ticket? Thats great news if thats the case.
We are staying in the centre of Barcelona so plan to get the bus to the track with Sagles but I dont think they run buses on the Thursday so any tips for Thursday transport would be appreciated.
We are only staying Wed – Sunday as the flight prices were much dearer for a Monday return. I was also worried it would be too busy for my boy on the Sunday so we are coming home on the Sunday. We will be there Thursday (hopefully) Friday and Saturday so it should be a great experience. We will be sky plussing the race and will watch it when we get home on Sunday night. Therefore anyone who is looking for 2 Sunday tickets we could pass them onto you. I am not sure if the tickets have your name on them. If not then we could pass or sell on Sunday general admission tickets to anyone interested.
