  • My first in person F1 event and it was everything that I expected. It was so much fun and the cars were amazing to watch. Festival like atmosphere and everyone was so friendly. Plenty of food choices and lots of rest rooms. The only downside is if you park in Lot R be prepared to walk a lot. We had 20,000 steps round trip each day from our car to Section 9. Shuttle service is non-existent from our to Lot R. Shuttle service in general is very lacking for a event like this. I give it 5 Stars for the event and 1 Star for the parking.
  • AMAZING! I am so happy we can watch the Formula One racers so close to home. Facilities were awesome. Restrooms were clean and stocked quickly. It was nice that there were so many water refill stations. Amazing experience and I can't wait to be back next year!
