Oh man… I am getting nervous. Flying tomorrow evening from Windhoek Namibia to Frankfurt, and then straight on to Milan on Friday morning. Hopefully I can make the second free practice still…
First time F1 race. I am so happy!5th September 2012, 16:04 at 4:04 pm #182108AnonymousInactive
All packed and ready for the off tomorrow morning. Due to unforseen circumstances, I am now travelling alone (female), so anyone on the Grandstand tour, look out for a lonesome, but friendly old gal…..I’m completely harmless, and really looking forward to the Grand Prix weekend :-)5th September 2012, 16:59 at 4:59 pm #182109Matt ClarkParticipant
Woot!! Just checked in at Milan. Four days at Monza, bring it on ;D5th September 2012, 17:41 at 5:41 pm #182110
To mclarentastic, I am also travelling alone (from Edinburgh) tomorrow. I’ve travelled to GPs alone a few times now with Grandstand (I assume you mean Grandstand Motorsports?) and they have always taken good care of me :-) I first went to the Italian GP in 2009 and I loved it. Being a McLaren fan on Ferrari territory can seem a bit daunting but the Tifosi are a great bunch :-)5th September 2012, 18:11 at 6:11 pm #182111AnonymousInactive
Hi Graham and thanks for the reply.
Yeah I’m not daunted by lone travel at all really. My biggest obstacle, particularly with sporting events (I also follow cricket) is men that are guarded, thinking I’m a preditary female….I’m not, lol ! I’m just a regular friendly gal who loves her sport.
My ex and I went to a Serie A game years ago so know first hand what the footballing tifosi are like !
Been to Spa twice with Page and Moye so giving Grandstand a bash this time.
Maybe see you there…..looking forward to it lots :-)5th September 2012, 18:28 at 6:28 pm #182112
Lol, well I’m sure you will have a great time. I went to Spa last year with Grandstand, sat at Eau Rouge and was in my element ;-)
I’m staying in the Hotel Marcos at Lake Commo, maybe see you on the coach, I’ll be the guy with the glasses, McLaren cap and bag lol. I won’t get into Lake Commo until after 6pm tomorrow, just hope I can find a shop open to get some water etc for taking to the track.5th September 2012, 19:13 at 7:13 pm #182113AnonymousInactive
I arrive in the afternoon too; flight due in at 16:00. I’m at the Hotel Park, so yeah probably see you on the bus although I’m not going in on Friday, but spending the day sightseeing on the lake, so maybe see you Saturday.5th September 2012, 19:26 at 7:26 pm #182114
I’m going in on the Friday, will hunt down my seat to see what the view is like (I’m sitting in alta velocita c) then I’ll have a wee wander I think lol. The woman who is going to be our rep is really nice, I met her briefly when I went to the Spanish GP last year and have spoken to her over the phone a couple of times.
Have fun sightseeing, looks a really nice place :-)6th September 2012, 12:10 at 12:10 pm #182115
