Considering Korea last minute
Posted 18 September 2012 - 16:14
Prices on BookF1.com (not sure if that's usually considered the best place) are £131 for three day grandstands and £75 for race day grandstand, which seems good value given it's usually a once a year thing (maximum).
My concern is all the additional costs. The cheapest return flights from HK to Gwangju are around £350. That doesn't factor in getting to the circuit and accommodation. I've been to Silverstone a couple of times but haven't camped yet (definitely on the agenda though) so I wouldn't feel confident doing it for the first time in Yeongam. Package deals seem a possibility (Waegook came up a couple of times).
The other thing is that only a few of my friends are F1 fans and they are back in the UK; I've only been in HK for a couple of days so I don't really know anyone yet, meaning I would almost certainly be going by myself. It could potentially be a unique experience but it could also be an expensive and lonely way to spend a weekend.
Any opinions that may sway me in one direction or the other?

I'm going too, from Melbourne. I'm renting a car, which will be my place to sleep if I don't find something cheap and close to the circuit.
I'm in grandstand G, ticket is on its why as we speak. Ordered on gpt.at, at an okay price.
We can keep each other company if you want, I'm a cool 24yo French guy

Also, if you are into your motorsports, make sure you get acvross to Macau in November for the Formula 3/World Touring car race. Best race weekend i have ever been too.
