I Already have my Tickets to F1 USGP

What level is everyone interested in? I decided to do the 3 Day pass, level 5 since its the first year and then buy more expensive once I figure out what view I like best.

That is what I did. Going to use first year just to feel it out, plus I constantly walk around at races taking pictures anyways.

Just a warning, race day is going to be a traffic nightmare, since they don't have time to address the roads and track parking. They are closing the roads to the track, most everyone will have to park at 3 park/ride lots and take shuttles to the track. One of the parking lots is downtown and estimated shuttle time is 80 minutes for race day, that is nuts. The first year is going to be one giant clusterf*ck, especially after the race when everyone is leaving the track at the same time.

I went by the track a couple weeks ago, it is coming along nicely. But the one lane roads in and out should have been addressed.

Prices are just for the race day tickets?

If so, how much for the 3 day passes?

Prices are for 3-day passes. Follow post#11 to buy tickets today. Instead of waiting for the 10th.

As of right now, it seems Turn 12 grandstands is sold out, and turn 2 grandstands is sold out.

Main Grandstand and Turn 1 grandstand are for PSL (read: Season Ticket) holders only.

I'm annoyed that turn 12 is out already. We'll see if they held any back for when it opens up more.

I'm gonna buy GA if I go. I found a B&B a couple of days ago, booked 150 a night. Everything else in town was crazy. I knew I wanted to at least get a hotel before tickets go on sale to the general public. I'll decide about going later. I think I'll want to be exploring the entire track, not stuck in a seat. I'm not used to sitting in bleachers at races. Granted, I've never been to an F1 race.

I just looked up for general admission tickets. The system gave me GA4. Does anyone know where GA4 is? The circuit's website is really unhelpful!
