If you're looking to book seats then I'd suggest either the pit straight or Stowe/vale, which would probably be a bit more interesting tbh. They'll come along he hangar straight pretty swiftly then it's a lovely long right sweep into Stowe with a left hander towards vale - it's a really good place for side by side action.
If you book, make sure you take ear plugs, it is unbelievably and almost inconceivably loud!
Been twice. Once had general admittance and once had seats in the pit straight stands. Grandstand seats were good but in some ways I preferred the general admittance as we were much closer to the track. Also, it's a long day and it was easier for wandering about, spreading out with a picnic, etc. Probably not so great if it's pouring down, though!
Oooohhhhhh am torn now. Thanks for the replies by the way. Now hubby does like to nose around alot so perhaps a seat isnt the best option,but then again if he has a seat he wont have to get up really early to secure a good spot to view the race from. Hummmmmmmmmmmm oh god need to deceide his bday is on the 10th!!!!
Just a thought, but if you're trying to think of other car related gifts I loved the festival of speed at goodwood - think it's usually held in June and it's a lovely area for a weekend away. There are also experiences that you can do where you get to race in an f1 simulator - that's on my list!
