It is very hard to say anything bad about this experience. What a wonderful circuit! Whether you decide to travel to the circuit by train or by coach both options are cost effective and extremely well organised. Even on race day, we were only in the queue for the coach home for 20 minutes, max. ( I liked the train myself, but the coach does drop you MUCH closer to the track, which avoids the 30 minute walk)
If you get a 3 day ticket do make use of the fact that its "roaming" for the Practice sessions. Although you get a great sense of speed from seats on the main grandstand, there are so many great views to be had. Stand A is worth a look as is Stand C, in the slower section of the track.
Having read other reviews we took our own food and booze. I'm glad we did. You'd spend a small fortune if you purchased all your food and drink from the circuit. (beware - you can't take glass or cans in. We opted for cartons of wine)
There is a very big (to be expected) Alonso/Ferrari following at the track, but lots of other European countries were well represented. The feel was very welcoming. It was just a great place to be.
If you are reading this considering next years race (assuming its confirmed at Catalunya), don't hesitate, just buy your tickets now. An added bonus to consider is that race weekend tickets get you free entry to testing (again assuming it takes place at Catalunya). A decent ticket might cost you £200, but that's a bargain for 4 days testing and 3 days over the race weekend, surely .. and if that's too steep, General Admission tickets are a lot less expensive. GA looked great for soaking up the atmosphere. Just remember to get there early on race day. 10am should do it ..
Book it now. Enjoy.
