Guys,
Is there any rule that we are not allowed to take SLRs to the race? Read a few threads on the net about this - SLR (professional cameras) are not allowed in the race apparently.

the ticket has a photo of an SLR, with a not permitted slash.
I am not going to take any chances, will not take anything on FP , and confirm.
For FP, the (un) trusty phone cam will suffice!
i'll click a picture of the McL, and the pic will be of the renault following it.

Guys just fyi !!

Classic stand west is the best place to see this race.
Almost 70% + track would be visible from there.

i don't think carrying an SLR or a DSLR is going to be a problem. The same rule is there for pretty much every other grand prix. I was a bit nervous carrying mine for the Singapore gp this year. but when i got there people were carrying all kinds of stuff from tripods, monopods to bazooka lenses.. and no they were not from the press. i think what they're really concerned about is professional equipment but if you're carrying a basic dslr i highly doubt that's an issue. at least it wasn't a problem for me.

Guys
I've got a Nikon D5000 with a inbuilt 18-105 & a 70-300 add-on lens as well. Should I dump the 70-300 and play it safe. End of the day, I don't want to lose the camera

Thanks !

Some minor hiccups as the media are on the track:
  • Couple of power outages have the broadcasters panicking
  • BBC crew's commentary box is away from the track and without a window, only a couple of screens!!
Praying nothing major goes wrong.

i seriously doubt if that's going to be any issue carrying that but if you're paranoid about the prospect of getting stopped at the security check you could skip the 70-300 or better yet leave everything and just carry a small digicam n you can focus on watching some world class racing but jokes apart, i think its also dependant on the venue as well. And since its an inaugural race i wouldn't be surprised if they're a bit uptight about rules. Best thing is to wait till Friday practice and see how strict they are about these things from any bhpians attending it. That's your best bet.
