After reading about the Valencia/Barcelona races having to alternate for financial reasons, my question is simple, do you think that the live races offer good value for money, and if not what do you think they can do to improve the situation?

Personally I have attended both Monza and Spa. At Monza I paid for general admission and found a good vantage point nigh impossible to find as the Italians had roped off the best general seating areas for themselves. At Spa I forked out for eau rouge seats and invested in a good pair of ear protectors with built in radio. There was so little commentary in English however I spent a good portion of the race watching the big screen through binoculars to follow what was happening when I should have been enjoying the spectacle.

My own thoughts really are that, while I thoroughly enjoyed the experiences, there should be more effort made in radio commentary so you have a minute by minute update to progress on track which leaves you free to enjoy the show. From what I've heard, what they've done similarly in snooker has done a lot for the live show. This alone would make me prefer to spend the money on a bigger tv instead of a ticket next time but what do you think they could do to improve things for the live race?

Always finish what you
