Yeah Rs 2500, Rs 6500, Rs 12000 and Rs 35000

The thing I am really hating is that we have book separate tickets to even get to the track by our own vehicle even if we dont park it. And that (I'm not Sure) is only if 3 tickets are booked together at least.
So if 1 or 2 ppl are going to the track their only options are
1. 2 wheeler (>1 tickets) which is a bad idea if you're coming all d way from Delhi, it like over 50kms
2. BIC Bus ticket
3. Taxi, Im guessing the fares will be thru-the-roof.

I think a bigger problem is going to be Hotels. Delhi is very expensive (mostly as much as Europe) and lacks a good number of hotels. That's the first thing people should book right now.

The tickets are expensive. I have a feeling that certain areas will remain empty. BTW, the picnic area, how is it going to be? The race is in the afternoon and without shade, How do you think people will hold up in the heat. Howz the weather in delhi around Oct end?

The ticket pricing is ok, considering F1 is an expensive sport. The bigger problem is reaching Delhi that weekend, as its the Diwali break as well and everybody will heading home. A quick check on the Mumbai - Delhi train routes show waitlists over 300+ on the popular trains. Air fares are also quite high.

Then comes accomodation plus getting to the track, etc.

Star Stand 1 East rocks! End of the long straight, thus you get to see the cars zooming toward you at 300 kph, and witness their awesome braking (believe me, the way an F1 car brakes will impress you more than their acceleration). I'm dead sure T4 corner will see some good overtaking.

Congratulations on inaugurating the ticket counter. Super proud today!

But I'm in a soup thinking what to do? I enrolled for the marshall training program but haven't heard from the organisers after the initial bits were done in April. Whether to buy tickets or not? I do not want to let this piece of history go past me at any cost.

Guys, i am going to book a ticket. Please tell me which is the best area to be in?> I already read that the East stand 1 is good. What are the other options? People who have been to the circuit or other races might have an insight. Please advise. Thanks.

I can't see the prices for the stands on the official site.

What stands would the cheapest tickets be? All the stands seem to be either Star or Premium or Classic, and they definitely don't sound 'cheap'. The only ones that sound 'cheap' are the Picnic stand North and Natural/Picnic stand South.
Can someone please shed more light on this?

And would it be worth 2500, given the fact that I'd be coming all the way from Hyderabad? Or should I up my budget to the 6k seats?
Need a quick reply as I need to start saving from this very moment!

You can see prices for each stand here:

Picnic stands do not have tv screens which is a bit strange.

Abbas, I assume you have never been north during this time of the year.
Delhi in October is going to be nice and cold. Even if the sun is out during the day the weather is going to be very crisp and bright, it is probably the one of the best times to see Delhi apart from the lovely winters.

I cannot speak for the regulations they are imposing but in the U.S. many events restrict what can be brought into them.

Bringing in cameras, sound recorders, drinks and food are sometimes prohibited. This does not apply to all events but it does to some of them.

Some of this is an outgrowth of the world we live in with its idiots that would happily blow up a number of people at a gathering with a small bomb in the name of some cause.
As this sort of lunacy has happened world wide and is not something that just happens in a few places, it is understandable to me that such regulations by the orginizing bodies may be required.

I suggest reading all of the rules closely. If the restrictions are for "Professional still cameras" perhaps now is the time to buy some small "Non Professional camera"?
Some of the latest digital cameras are amazing and not that expensive.

As for the food and drinks I sometimes wonder if this is not done to add to the vendors profits?

Official word is that training will be happening soon (Early September). You should be notified about the planned training dates (via SMS) within the next week.

Thats all i know for now!
