Monza 2013 - Tips For Going To The Race
Posted 17 January 2013 - 08:13 PM
I'll be going to my first GP this year and I chose MONZA! I'm really excited about it. For those who have been there before: Where is the best place to sit? I want to see some action while being able to take some good pictures (no fence in front would be great). My 'last wish' is to be able to get on the track fast so i can see the trophy ceremony. I am looking at these spots. Which can provide a good mix of these things I'm looking for?
Tribuna Ascari - 16
Prima Varianti - 8B or 8A
Tribuna Laterale - 26B
Last but not least, I'm thinking about taking my wife and 3-year old daughter. If they go, we would have to go into the general admission area. Where should we sit? (I'm thinking in the entrance of Parabolica) Also, do we need to get there early to secure good spots? What about the noise? I'm concerned she'll cry the whole time and ruin the experience.

i have been to montreal as well - as great as montreal is, monza is just so awesome. the atmosphere, being able to walk amoungst the campers on the inside portion of the track (don't arrive too early sunday - parties still strewn about!) and the food and drink options, while expensive, are an addition (i am handy with a knife and fork) especially compared to what was on offer at montreal (if you were not in an extra-cost area)
pretty loud - >really< loud actually - might take a soundproof box to protect a child. the actual noise is not the only issue - you can FEEL the sound waves if you are close enough when they floor it. feels like your internal organs vibrate
would be a hike to get to the grandstand i think, but the big screen was across the track
don't miss the opportunity to stand on the banked curve of the old track - it is amazing to see the steepness of the bank - i can't imagine what willpower it took to drive into that corner and go "up" the bank while going around the corner
plus milan is amazing
some of the support races were great as well - i have a picture of a porsche going backwards (after a spin caused by letting a tire into the dirt on the inside of the corner) on the tarmac with the car behind him (that one going in the normal direction) with about 3 inches between bumpers! that must have been a surprise to both drivers

I'm back, and I will keep my old signature image just to point out I WAS RIGHT.
