Well, people, it's finally happened. After years of excellent deals on tickets (around 50 euros for 2 days grandstand seats) the AC of Monaco have realised the popularity of their event and have hoicked up the prices by the small matter of over 100%!

A seat in the Casino Square grandstand, just for Sunday, is now 100 euros and with administration costs, comes in at 120.

Rather disappointing but I've been expecting this for the last few events. Still it beats the F.1 race, where a similar seat will cost you 650 euros!

I don't remember what I paid in 2016, Barry...

But I felt it was a rort even then, particularly as it gives you only one area to see the sights. No moving from place to place.

I was rather shocked when I booked tickets a few weeks ago at the price most the good seats went quickly I found in 2018 that ticket resellers had bought in bulk to resell. I don't think it's that expensive relatively in my opinion Casino square saturday for qualifying is breathtaking.

Although it's not the thing that will attract most (if any) TNFers, it's good to see that drivers of a more recent vintage - Pastor Maldonado and Bjorn Wirdheim - are getting involved in historic events.

I sometimes wonder where the next lot of former drivers is going to come from when the likes of Redman, Oliver, Ickx etc call it a day.

I see we have no Formula Juniors nor Formula 3 to entertain us this year. Shame. But they persist with the sports car race that bears little resemblance to the one-off race in 1952.

You never know which drivers will become attached to the sport.  E.g. Emanuele Pirro.  At Goodwood I watched him negotiate for a drive in the Lotus turbine that he had never seen before.  Dario Franchitti will have to be incapacitated to stop him from driving historic cars.  Karun Chandhok will also surely be a fixture for years to come.  And if Maldonado can make an historic appearance, surely others of a similar vein will follow.
