I'm off to this next weekend, can't wait!  Has anyone else on here got pit walk tickets?  Anyone got any idea on what to expect from the day?

Six hours of cars going past!


No I've not got pit walk, they can be rather manic at times so I wasn't too fussed about getting onto it. Having limited numbers should make it rather more pleasant if you are on it.


Main thing to do is have a good walk around, the ELMS and F3 paddocks are open on Sunday and a good way to meet drivers and see the cars being prepped, will be a lot quieter than the WEC paddock. Plenty of good spots to watch the racing from.


Most useful thing - pick up a portable FM radio - it can often be hard to hear commentary over the PA and once you get more than twenty minutes in, the field is so mixed up as to make it impossible to follow from trackside unless you are keeping a lap chart. Also lets you know who is actually in the cars too!
