Am I reading this right? Canadian GP tickets are $163.43 for the cheap seats? And $301.71 and $368.76 for the better seats?


Maybe I'm just used to USGP prices.

Are we talking USD or 'nadian dollars?

Sounds about right. Fiancee and I did a package deal w/ hotel and 3 day passes last year, I believe it was $1300USD for the two of us.

imo so not worth it.

Now the USGP is cheaper to attend than just about any weekend at a major Road America event.

You can also buy General admission for the 3 days..... for $90CDN...

Last time I was there (2003), we took section 33 (bronze section for $195CDN)....

Think of it as a tax over Indy since Montreal is filled with far more interesting culture. In 2002 my brother and I got three-day Candian GP tickets in the grandstand at the start of the back straight for $50US/each. Those haven't been offered since as far as I can tell.

Still, everyone should experience the shredding sound of a F1 engine at least once in their life - it's a lot more dramatic than I had expected.

^^^ ding ding...

You have to remember thats for 3 days seating, and its probably in canadian $. Even so, its well worth it for all three days. And if you think the USGP is comparable to the Montreal experience, you've got another thing coming. Its unbelievable, you have to see it for yourself.

The general ambiance(sp) is only somewhat important for my F1 experience.

I am there for one simple selfish reason. That is to flood all of my senses with those beautiful machines being piloted by some of the best drivers on the planet. The USGP allows one to get quite close and to wander for hours to view a myriad of angles and persepctives.

I woudn't get general admission.... as you stand where you can by a fence or open spot.... you won't get the best view....

What's good with Montreal too is you can bring your full cooler in with you..... food/beer, etc.... so you don't need to buy from the concession stands....

Montreal is great if you've never been..... I live about 1.5hrs so I been lots of times... with the GP and summertime in Montreal.... it's always great...

But if you go.... don't wait to book for a hotel as even though Montreal is 2+ million city..... they get booked....

If you book a hotel room downtown, you won't need your car or a rental all weekend as you can take the Metro directly to the F1.... quick ride.

This is an issue that F1 needs to work on. All the events are responible for their own promotion and sales of tickets. The offical F1 site (www.formula1.com) will only direct you towars theirs.

I've been to both Montreal (9x) and Indy (2x). There is no comparison. Montreal is one of the most fabulous cities in the world. It's exciting, exotic, and everything is close. You get to the track either by walking from the city, or on the subway.

Indy, is, well, in Indiana. Gotta drive to the track. Nightlife is NOTHING like Montreal.

The track in Montreal is on an Island. It's pretty jammed and there isn't much chance to wander around and get different views of the track. At Indy, it's much easier to get close to the cars and the place is so big that getting around to see everything is pretty easy.

I'm an old guy, and I've been to about as many strip bars as I need to. My vote and $$ will go to indy again this year.
