Any tips for fellow fans considering going to a race?
“You don’t need to buy the most expensive tickets to have the best experience. For example, the Bronze (General Admission) tickets at Spa Francorchamps are the cheapest, but also offer the best places to watch the action. The same goes for other circuits like the Red Bull Ring, Hungaroring and Barcelona, where the cheapest General Admission tickets are really good. You just have to get there early on race day to reserve a good spot! This may not work for everyone or at every circuit, but buying the cheapest tickets means I can afford to go to more races!”
What are your plans for the future?
“My 50th race will be the Spanish Grand Prix in May. I am going to a total of six races in 2017, including my first trip to the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Next year, my girlfriend and I are planning a trip to Australia. We will meet some friends that we made at the Monaco GP a few years ago, and a trip to the Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park is obviously part of the itinerary! Every Formula 1 venue is unique in its own way and I am looking forward to seeing more.”
