I think you sat in practically the same seats we had last year! 3 of the 5 years I've gone to the race, we sat in the hairpin section. One of the best areas of the track I think. You actually get some time to look at the cars as they go by.
We love old Montreal!!
Anyway, yes, I agree with the points you guys are making. But here is my story.
Our first year, we had the seats which were the other side of the hairpin you had this year. The second year, they were the first corner seats which was very exciting. The third year we had the grandstands seats, and really enjoyed to see them so close. With other seats, we would see an exciting pass, and braking, etc, but we never see what is really going on. Also we had to wait, wait, and wait for cars to come.
A biggie is a start! The sound and faces of the drivers meditating were (with binocular) really great!! So that�fs why we decided to get another grandstands seats this year. Next year, well we will get the same seats. Also we want to try to go Italian GP next year (I�fve been to 3 different GPs and really want to go Monaco GP someday)
But if you just want to see a race easy way, a best seat is the front of the TV...
I just registered and own an 86 spider veloce. I live in Montreal and also attended the grand prix as I do every year. You mentioned there are no Alfa clubs in Montreal but these is an Italian auto club. Do you have any details. I'm interested in sharing experience with other Alfa Spider owners.
