Hi John,Plastic bottles of beer were allowed to be taken into the circuit up until 2013.
Last year (2014) even though it said alcohol in plastic bottles was allowed, the security staff were searching bags on entry to the circuit and taking alcohol off everyone, although there were a few who managed to get some through, which is not surprising as the beer is 8 euros a pint and 11 euros for what they say is a litre.
I have purchased tickets this year direct from the track and have printed them out. There is nothing to say either way on these tickets.
I’ve booked Flights and Hotel, but read online you are not allowed in with an SLR Camera – Does anyone know if this is correct – If so how can a member of the paying public take photographs of the event from a public spectator area??
