anyone getting excited yet? :-)2nd March 2016, 13:41 at 1:41 pm #313762
I gotta admit that is wierd. Keen eye you have there. I looked a couple of days ago and there were shirts for both drivers. Its a bit odd.24th February 2016, 7:30 at 7:30 am #312885
I will be at the first chicane too. Have sat there before. As soon as the race is over head for an entrance. Others will already be heading there. There is quite a wait until they open the barriers for the fans but as soon as they do you have to run. Its alot further than you realise when you run down the straight! Theres no way you will taste champagne unless you skip the last laps and try to get closer…8th February 2016, 9:06 at 9:06 am #312199
I’ll keep an eye out for you at the campsite Anscombes :-) Met so many nice people there last time.14th January 2016, 9:14 at 9:14 am #311388
Camping F1 have 2 sites to my knowlege. One is next to the track (where alot of motor homes stay) the other one which is further away is mainly for pre errected tents, but there were some motor homes there.
I usually take a tent deal at F1camping. Its a good 25 minute walk to the track but you can also take the train which is very close. (it just doesnt run to the track on raceday)
*Btw booking is now open with camping F1.9th January 2016, 9:34 at 9:34 am #311208
Hey Jon, how are you travelling? If your going by train I think I did it in less than 2 hours.9th January 2016, 9:34 at 9:34 am #311207
Im going back again after missing last year. Hopefully gonna take my Dad along too. I stay at the F1camping site @Anscombes dont know about electrícity though.11th September 2015, 9:19 at 9:19 am #304982
Its a nice track so dont expect it back… the trend is to lose or at least threaten the good tracks.17th June 2015, 9:49 at 9:49 am #300165
Canada 2011 I remember going mental when Vettel lost it on the last lap and Button won, after the long wait with the rain and Button being my favourite driver I was jumping up and down and cheering enough to scare the wife. The neighbors even mentioned it in the days after lol.
I get emotional quite often with F1, I even shed a little tear when Vettel won his first for Ferrari and Im not even a real fan of his!24th March 2015, 5:44 at 5:44 am #294975
your welcome Sean… again check out the other threads, answer was there too ;-)
Its about 25-30 minutes walk to the lesmo corner. Theres actually a lovely route along the river. You only have to walk it once though (sunday morning) as the train only goes the other way on Sunday, so you can stil get the train back after the race. Its only one stop on the train (like 4 minutes) so its by far the easiest.23rd March 2015, 11:32 at 11:32 am #294948
I posted this in another thread…
I can highly recommended camping F1. They have 3 sites, one in track, one next to it, and one a little further out. The two sites closest to the track seemed to be very loud party camps full of Europeans in camper vans.
The third is where I stayed and is the only one with pre erected tents. You camp on the grounds of a hotel/restaurant. Theres a great chilled atmosphere there and the food is pretty decent. The toilet and shower block were very good too. Its also mainly english people which is noce. Its just one stop on the train so dits not a long commute. (You have to walk on sundays as the train doesnt run)
I arrived on the Thursday too but ended up stocking up on supplies and having some beers with the other campers. I didnt find alot of info about what was happening on the Thursday but if you do, bare in mind… if you have to pick up your tickets, its at the opposite end of the track and is quite a trek.
It would be no problem taking kids to this site.23rd March 2015, 5:20 at 5:20 am #294936

In my opinion ear defenders are no longer needed for F1, however you may still want them for the GP2 as thats still quite loud.8th February 2015, 12:01 at 12:01 pm #291889
As Ivan said, GP2 is pretty much what you seem to want.
Formula E have identical cars this year and the racing has been good, but I think there are alot of people including myself that are looking forward to next season where alot of the restrictions are to be lifted and we will see some variations in looks, peformance ect. making it a bit more interesting and closer to F1.
