    @unionscum -

    Thanks for the info & the picture! I am getting so excited! I am babying my knee as much as possible until the race and keeping my fingers crossed that it appreciates my effort and lasts through the race. As long as the weather is decent, we will be riding the motorcycle to the race. Not sure how much we can carry, but if we find room for some Leffe in our gear, one has your name on it! Enjoy the race =)

    Thank you so much for the advice!! I know this is probably not going to end well for my knee (so I am dusting off the crutches as we speak), but injury or not, I simply cannot pass up an opportunity to see an F1 race at what is perhaps the most beautiful track in the world. This has been a dream of mine for years, so I will happily take the risk (and no worries about the heels, I can’t even take two steps in them before I am at the doctor’s office! Pity too, I miss my heels!!)

    Again, thank you SO much for your suggestions. I fly in to Amsterdam (I am coming from the United States) on Saturday & am staying in south Holland. We will be leaving very very early to make sure to get the best parking and seats possible. I am actually really happy to hear that I will be able to watch from the kemmel straight. My dream, of course, is to sit and watch the cars coming through Eau Rouge (perhaps my favorite turn in racing), but with GA, that isn’t quite possible. Will I be able to get at least a glimpse of Eau Rouge from Kemmel if I get there early enough to get my choice of seats?

    Thanks again for the info!!! I am so excited for this, I can’t really think of much else. PS – on my way home from work, I stopped off and bought a six pack of Leffe Brune to get me in the mood! My favorite Belgian beer (perhaps my favorite beer!!)

    Hi all!! I have been following f1fanatic for a few years now, but had to actually register to join in the Spa chat. I had planned a trip to Holland for the first week in September to visit my boyfriend without even realizing that my trip corresponds with Spa. So, I was overjoyed when my boyfriend decided to surprise me with tickets to the race! He knows that my two bucket list races are Le Mans and Spa F1. I will get to cross them both off of my list this year. This will also be my very first F1 race to attend live.

    So now I have a quick question for those of you that are familiar with the track. We have general admission tickets, but for me there is one small catch. I have a very severe knee injury (need knee replacement surgery), and walking up and down hills will put me on crutches for the next month or so. To be honest, that is a small price to pay to get to see this race live and in person. So, I will happily hop around on crutches for a while if I have to =) But, if I can avoid the crutches, that wouldn’t be bad either. We are coming in on a motorcycle, so I think that we will be able to park right near the gates. Does anyone have a recommendation for the best place to watch that is also the easiest to get to? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!!
