Go to Spa, its a brilliant place. Just hope it doesn't rain :P

Spa is ridiculous expensive!! :<>: Really, at least a place at a grandstand, you have to pay at least €300 for a weekend! A place on the grass is also too expensixe for what you get, you're at the fastest place of the track, you don;t see a thing! Spa = ridiculous! Let's hear it for the Ring and Monza!! :p

It is expensive but to me it's the best race circuit and that matters more than the expense.

Tonight we're going to discuss which grandstand we'll be taking.. It's 5b or 6.. We want to see the cars where Alonso overtook Massa in 07. But I don't know if it's 5b or 6.. Can you help me, I'm talking about the Nürburgring.

The Australian dollar has been on a wild ride over the past 12-18 months so that changes things heaps ... But ill try to convert to Euros**

Grand Prix Tickets:
4 Day General Admission = AU $175 ..... 88 Euros
4 Day Grandstand Ticket = AU $379-$639 ..... 191-322 Euros

Accomodation:
Im not an expert in this area as Im currently living within walking distance of Albert Park. But id estimate between AU $200-$400 a night ... 101-202 Euros a night ... depending on how nice a hotel you wanted to stay in.

Flights:
This would probably be the killer for you guys over there as its such a LONG way away. I think flights from here to London return are about AU$1800 ..... 910 Euros. But thats from our end so you'd have a better idea than me what it costs to get to Australia.

Cost of Food:
Like ALL Grand Prix its very expensive to buy your food on circuit. Eg: Hamburger + Water Bottle would cost maybe $10-$15 ..... 5-7 Euros.

** Prices based on todays (Mar-04) conversion of 1 Euro = AU $1.98 **

Hope that helps and gives some idea what you'd be up for if anyone decides to come to Melbourne for the Grand Prix one day ... GO WEBBER!!!!

:)

Yeah mate, its a full 4 day program at Albert Park. In the past on Thursday there has been Practice, Qualifying and Race 1 for the minor support categories which has been heaps of fun. But this year there seems to be a few more supprt events so Thursday only going to have time for Prac/Qualifying - still lots to see and do though. What it means is that Friday, Saturday, Sunday is non-stop racing!!!

Support Races - v8 Supercars, Australian GT, Aussie Racing Cars, MINI Challenge, Formula Ford, Formula 5000 ... and also, Historic Demonstration, and The Ultimate Speed Comparison

Australian GP Website ... grandprix.com.au
Event Timetable ... formula1.com/races/in_detail/australia_805/event_timetable.html

And also on Wednesday afternoon "GP Advantage" ticket holders (loyal fans that book tickets 6 months or so before the event) get a huge session in pit lane watching the F1 teams setup the garages and cars. Drivers are interviewed and sign some autographs for the fans ... Its a really great way to start the weekend.
