2012 Canadian Grand Prix tickets

I have two tickets available for the Canadian Grand Prix for 2012.
They are at the hairpin in grandstand 24, Section 3, Row FF, seat 14 and 15. The seats are 6 rows up from the track and the view is unobstructed. No fences!
I have attached some photos taken from seats that are one row down and 4 seats to the left of the seats that are for sale. Price is $895.00 for the 2 tickets.
I am offering to F-Life members prior to other sources.

Got my tickets 2 weeks ago. I am counting down the days till I step on the plane and land in Montreal with my favorite beverage in hand walking the streets on Friday afternoon.
I got great seats this year andifthey are as good as I think they are then these seats will be keepers for the upcoming years.
Maybe I will bump into some of the usual suspects this year!

Yes I could leave my house in NJ at 6 am and drive up there and get there at about 3 pm.
I have friends that drive up there every year
I rather go to the airport, have a few cocktails jump on a plane and land in Canada 2 hours later well rested and ready for trouble!

Where are you sitting?
I am always asking veterans where the good places are too.
Any suggestions?

i have watched the race from most parts of the track over the last six years. i actually like to sit or stand on the grassy hill at the senna(1st) turn. Another thing i did once that i really liked was i got tickets on the start finish line and watched part of the qualys there, good view of the pits. Then i moved over to the senna turn for the race. Of course the best place i watched it was last year in the ferrari vip section at pit out. I like to take a lot of pics so the first turn is hard to beat. also the best place for the race start.

I sit at the hairpin. The photos in this thread were taken from my seats. I have sat on the main straight, senna corner and the hairpin. I like the hairpin the most. I am right at the turn and 5 rows up. Also have the aisle seat which is a huge plus so i have hung on to those tickets for a number of years.

Looks like you had a great time in the VIP section. Got to do that one year.

That may limit me from doing it for a while but sometimes you have to pay for a once in a lifetime experience.

Montreal is IMO the best race of the year, behind Monaco of course. If you get there on Wednesday, you can do a pit tour Thursday morning, don't get to see any drivers, but still cool to drive / walk on the track, and walk along the pit lane. Did not see any drivers there when I did this years ago.

My favorite seating area was on the Pit side of the Senna curve, turn 1 and 2. That's where a lot of the action, passes, crashes, etc. occur, and it's easy to follow the race, because it has a big screen right there too.

After the track action, each day there are tons of things happening on Crescent St. and Sherbrook. Each day has a different party / theme. Used to be a BMW day, a Honda Day, and a Ferrari Day somewhere that I never found. Owner's of those makes of cars bring them out and park them on the street.

On Crescent, you can hang out on the deck at Newtown, Jacques Villenueve's restaurant and they have a stage there with bands, and driver's show up for interviews.

One year they had a Mercedes Benz fashion show. Anther year, a BMW Fashion show with driver interviews.

As for night life, Montreal has incredible restaurants, and some of the best Techno Music clubs in the world. Rest up, as things don't really get started until 11 P:M to midnight.

If you like Sushi, try Kaizan, or Le Petit Treehouse.

Mark gave a great summary of what to do. Just to add to the Ferrari's and BMW's etc, they park on Peel Street between St. Catherine and Maisonneuve Blvd. Ferrari's are usually there on the Thursday night. Downtown Montreal is a blast during the race weekend and the race is great. Crescent Street is the place to be at night. I sit at the Hairpin but have sat at the first corner and also on the pit straight. Great atmosphere all around.
