He's the first Brit to win a MotoGP for 25 years and all you do is slag him off.
I'm delighted he won.   :celebrate:
I'm delighted McFee won too.  :celebrate:

Ted.
I'm pleased he won Ted, but he's still a moaning git.  :008:

I'm embarrassed that he's a Brit.  He confirms all of the racial sterotypes of whinging poms.

Enjoy it Boggs. I've NEVER been to one. I was all set to go to the UK one at Donnington, can't remember when but decades ago, until I found the entrance was 30+. Remember decades ago 30 was a LOT and I simply wasn't prepared to spend that much on a sporting event even though I could perfectly well afford it. I guess my war-time and post-war upbringing of thrift did it to me. I still have it. Annoying at times. Stuff has to have REAL value.
The TV coverage is so good these days I suspect watching and not knowing exactly what is going on would be very frustrating.
The atmosphere will be pretty special though I guess, like the TT, which I have been to.

You can buy tickets on the gate.

155 for Fri, Sat and Sun
50 for Fri
70 for Sat
90 for Sun

I'm going on Fri (practice).  I go Fri every year.  Obviously, not as exciting as race day, but still lots of fun and great to see the bikes come screaming by - even when they're not competing.  Pretty relaxed atmosphere.  Not all the stands are open.  I like standing at Village (the stand is closed on Friday's) and sitting at Luffield (the stand is open).  But, Luffield fills fast so by 1100h there are often no paired seats available.  No problem if there's just one of you. 

Pre-purchase tickets were 30 and parking free (even for cars) on Friday.  Parking is free for bikes all weekend (I think) but cars are expensive.

Thanks Sylvester.
Is that pre-purchase 30 for race day? If it is, it is a hell of a lot more affordable than my 30 was all those years ago.
Have a great day.

No.  30 was for Friday practice.  I can't remember how much race day tickets were.  I think general admission was 50, but I might be wrong.  Worth noting that general admission DOES NOT only provides access to the standing areas - none of the seated areas.  Let's face it, MotoGP "aint cheap".
