I bit of advice required. I usually buy a roving grandstand ticket for the weekend but it almost doubles the cost of the 3 days. Old age/mobility are minor issues, it's more to do with bad weather. It'll be easier to judge the need for cover if I buy the grandstand ticket nearer the date, when I can have a look at weather forecasts.

I know that entrance tickets start to be sold out by July/August. Does anyone have any idea of grandstand availabilty if I leave it till the last moment?

Booked today, four first timers from Canada, 3 day pass general admission & grandstand. Can't wait. Worked out at $667.00 each, not cheap, but what the heck.

Just for the record prices for 2020 are Friday: £60 / Sat and Sun: £80 / 3-day pass: £190.

(I'm not sure if it's an error, the Assembly Rooms hospitality package for Friday is already showing as sold out)
I think the Assembly Rooms are 100% corporate on the Friday. My friend managed to get us in there on the Friday this year.

Ah that would make sense, thanks.

Having sampled it, would you say it was worth the £654 it costs for the other two days?

It's a roaming stand, so we can uses all of them.

Good choice, but just so that you don't get a surprise on the day, you cannot use all of them, Chicane and Woodcote are not on the roving grandstand ticket because they are all reserved seating.

Roving grandstand ticket gets you into the Chicane grandstand on the Friday (a great place to watch the Friday evening Kinrara race) but not for the rest of the weekend. If you fancy standing a bit closer to the track it also means you can lean on the fence in front of the grandstand where there is generally a bit more space than adjacent areas where it can be several people deep. Further round the circuit you can normally find some space by the fence anyway of course.

Otherwise on the Saturday and Sunday a roving ticket gets you into the start line grandstand and any of those away from the paddock area (Lavant straight, Lavant corner, Fordwater and the little one out of Madgwick). They’re not the best viewing places in my opinion, and the Lavant corner ones seem a long way from the track, but all offer the ability to rest legs and shelter from the rain when required, and most have a reasonable view of a big screen these days.

Which are not as big as they used to be, making it almost impossible to read the captions. hehe
