Just out here visiting my brother. Decided I'm not likely to get another opportunity so bought a turn 1 grandstand ticket (second row back on the apex).

Have any of you got / seen a schedule of all of the support races?

Thsnks,

Jon

havent seen the scedule but it will be the Aston Martins, 911's and the BMW Single Seaters.

the races / quali's usually start from 2pm and there is action on the track prety much solid all the way through to the night.

You have good seats there, but if watching during the day bring an umbrella and sunblock (brolly to keep sun off as well as rain.... you will find that the grandstands are quite empty until the actual F1 race which is a shame given that the support stuff is damn good too!

He flies at 6:30am on Sunday, so has suggested we just pull an all-nighter on Saturday night!

The tea leaves say that there is trouble in my future!

Are there any late, late bars around Robertson/ Clarke, John?

LOL - We met Nikki Lauda, had hospitality for quali (my cousin flew home Sunday morning, sow e didn't bother watching the GP at the Bay) and got drunk out of our minds and stayed up far too late each night! Will re-tell the rest of the stories over some beers, at some point wink
