Has anybody tried booking tickets on the AC de Monaco website? I get a message saying "Please Wait" which, apparently, you have to do indefinitely.

Had the same problem 2 years ago, eventually emailed Autoclub Monaco who sorted it out, can't give you the link Roger as I changed computer and most of my address book declined to go from Livemail to Googlemail

It's working on my computer Roger - the "Please Wait" delay is only about 5 seconds.

Link is http://www.formula1m...tingSystem.aspx for what it's worth.

That's the page I used. It does change after a few seconds to one announcing new prices for the Grand Prix, in three languages. The only link I can find on this second page is the red button at the bottom of the page. Clicking on that takes me back to "please wait". I'm still waiting..

If you are using the latest Internet Explorer 9, there might be problems with certain pages. I do have them occasionally with the IE9.
Try Firefox of Google Chrome - that should work.

I'm on the same. I've tried it and it seems to work although a bit slowly. I got the OK button at the bottom which took about 20 seconds to allow me to click the link.

I've got a decision to make soon. I don't seem to be able to get to Nice from Malta without paying several arms and legs. I'm very close to deciding to fly back to the U.K. then meet the lads at St. Pancras for the train down, then the whole thing in reverse on the way back.

Daft, I call it!

You can fly to Marseille direct from Malta and take the train to Monaco.
Less fun maybe, but it will take less time and the cost will be lower. ;)

The same happens for me. I have used Safari and Firefox, without success. I have a "hard copy" of the order form, which I guess I will mail off. Just wondering which "virages" to get tickets for. In 2008, Marion and I (and Barry and Roger) were at the Casino on Saturday and Marion and I at "K, Quai Albert 1er, Route Piscine" on Sunday. This time, I'm debating either Ste-Devote or A. Noghes on Saturday, and then maybe the Casino on Sunday. There will be practice on Friday too. Will we be able to go in any of the stands that day? Where are the rest of you thinking of watching? Will there be a TNF gathering?

Barry, just get started on a raft. (Who's that bearded man on the horizon?)

Vince: Anthony Noghes and St Devote is highly recommended!Noghes in the front row is about 2 metres from the Armco-impressive!!

Our plan is Casino on Saturday and after Tabac on Sunday, Vince.

No TNF get-together has been planned thus far but I'm sure something will happen at some time.

Watch this space.

ACM website didn't like Chrome for me so I succedded with either Firefox or IE. I think the former. You do need to wait while it loads, but it does get there eventually. Booked for Sunday only in Tabac. Staying near Menton and haven't decided whether to drive or train yet. Looking forward to it !

Excuse me while I put my techie head on for a moment.

I just looked at the site, suspecting it was some unnecessarily heavy piece of Flash and it's actually written using a Microsoft technology called Silverlight. Microsoft released it four or five years ago in an attempt to ape Flash. Unfortunately it had all Flash's disadvantages (big and slow) and none of its advantages (everyone used it; every browser could run it). It works on some combinations of browser and operating system and not on others.

Now that Flash is on its deathbed - mortally wounded by HTML5 and jQuery - it's hard to see why Microsoft keeps going with Silverlight. The Monaco guys were not well advised.

For me the ACM ticketing site would not run (or ran extremely slowly - I've seen faster glaciers!) on my laptop but did run successfully on my PC (both using Firefox and IE). Both machines are running the same operating system (Vista Home Premium) and both have up-to-date Silverlight installed on them. Looking at Allen Brown's technical explanation, I wonder if my laptop just does not have enough horsepower to run the bloatware.

I won't attend Monaco this year as it's the time of the year when my little business is getting busy for the tourist season.

Interesting to see Beppe Gabbiani entered in the Lancia Marino http://automania.it/...d=1455&id2=2431
Also that the ex-Moss 1961 GP-winning Lotus 18 is also entered, and Simon Hadfield with a March 721G.

I think they allow 45 for qualifying and 40 for the race. Don't ask me what happens if all 49 turn up for qualifying!

Yes Alan,In all my 42 years of motor racing this will be the 2nd set of new tyres I will have bought for the March. Except they are going on the Oliroy.The last time I bought new tyres and Cirrus will tell you the story I managed to throw the car into the barriers at Castle Combe. :well:

I'll be driving down to Monaco in my 1980 Lotus Elite S2.2 to take in the Historic GP, possibly trying to recreate the photo of my car when it was owned by Team Essex Lotus that year and parked in the harbourside paddock. Possibly bump into some TNF members in the grandstands at Casino Square (Sat) or Anthony Noghes (Sun). Or at the bar at the Columbus perhaps.
