    Has anyone been or can offer any assistance, please?

    It's my partner's 50th in August and I want to surprise him with tickets for the Belgium race. I know it's the one he wants to go and has never been to any of them. I appreciate they're not cheap and we would have to fly and stay, but I've no idea which is the best part of the track etc and if I start asking him questions, he will click I'm on to something.

    Thank you :)

    It will be expensive, but anywhere close the Eau Rouge part of the course would be good. It's the most iconic part of the track. Left-right-left corner with a huge gradient that the cars have to go up which is an incredible sight when the cars are going 200+ mph. It's also just after the start/finishing straight, so on the first lap it will be carnage going up there.

    I reckon no matter where you are on the track he'll appreciate it. Nice gesture.

    That was nearly 3 years ago ... we didn’t get there and it’s up in the air at the moment, but one day :)

    We didnt pay for any grandstands but were able to walk the entire outside of the track. For what you lose in a prime view you gain from seeing all aspects of the tract over the 3 days. If you're a keen bean you can get up early with some deckchairs and get incredible positions still.

    My mates an F1 nut and hes been Belgium 4 or so times and claims it's by far the best

    We drove and camped pretty close to the town (not for everyone I know) and it was a pretty damn cheap week really. You can make it as cheap or expensive as you wish really depending on luxuries

    Haha well my advice is still relevant I suppose!
