talking Anyone going to Canadian Grand Prix?

Just bought my ticket and very excited as it is my first time to an F1 race!

We're gonna be sitting at Senna Corner Grandstand 11.

Anyone ever been to a race? Any tips?

I have only gone to the Edmonton Indy a few years ago and based on that, I suggest finding the area on the track where the most passing will likely take place and watch from there. You can usually walk and stand and gain better vantage points.


If you're sitting in an area like near the end of a long straight away, it is going to be LOUD from the down shifting so bring ear plugs.


Bring sun screen or one side of your face will be red if you are in the same spot too long lol.


Try to get a Paddock pass!
