Monza for the first time. Got my tickets in the mail last week. I can't wait. Coming from the States and would love some tips making getting to the track easy. We are staying in Milan. Next week I'm off for Montreal. So glad it is back on the calender...great city.

Returning to Singapore this year, but this time I'll be going to all 3 days! Just need to renew my passport this 18th so I can book the plane tickets already.

British Grand Prix tickets arrived a few days ago, but the mate I'm going with's decided to break his arm. Seeing as he was gonna drive us there I dunno how we'll make it, without spending a ridiculous amount of money. Typical.

Try to get to the track by shuttle busses, don't(!) try to go with the car to the track. Just drop your car somewhere where you see busses :O , I'm staying in Milan as well this time, so we're gonna have to find a shuttle as well

I'm not renting a car so no fear of driving to the track. I plan on taking the train from Milan and then the bus to the track. I understand it is a very long walk from the entrance to the Park to the actual track.

I've heard that if u come with a a car to Hungary,and give people on the entrances 100-150€ they even go with you and show you the best places and let u watch.
100-150€ ,one car,that means even 3,4 persons,so every person would give around 30€.
My friend from Croatia said that he watches the race 5yrs already entering with that "technique"
But it doesn't seem to be 100% sure so I'd rather go to Monza with real tickets.

Fantastic pics Liffonmelsmork :D. Your camera must have great shutter speed to take such good photos and your timing of phtos and order of photos are great too :thumbsup:

Thanks! The view from Luffield B is fantastic, from where we were you could see the cars for a really long time. Great to see overtaking at Brooklands and people having a go at Luffield. Best view I've had at Silverstone, I think! May even sit there next year. We had radios tuned into BBC Radio 5 Live so we knew exactly what was going on, 'cause you can't always hear the commentary over the loudspeakers, and just looking at the screen isn't always going to tell you about developments in the race. My dad predicted that Alguesuari would go off at Luffield, and he was right!

Cheers, they were taken with a few different modes and aperture settings but you can always rely on Photoshop to make any photo look twice as good!
