My brother, nephews , brother in law and I bought our tickets for the Italian Grand Prix at Monza next september and since I am D2, I will not miss the oAo race on the 8th :wiggle:

Very excited, it was a childhood dream to see a GP in Europe, on one of the original track no less ! :yu:  pics when I return !

Someone on the internet mentioned this a while back, I may want to pretend to be a Ferrari fan for the weekend. If there ever is a spacetime coordinate for it that's it.

On a more personal recommendation I know a great ice cream shop in Monza town.

I've only been there for an afternoon on a Thursday with the ice cream being the best part of that little adventure. Cant go wrong with Italian food anyway if you ask me, but our Italian members may be the better judges of that.

I envy you Alain, take plenty of pictures and post them here on your return. Have a word with the authorities while you are there about removing those Bloody Chicanes.

How exciting! :)

I'm looking to go to the Red Bull Ring potentially with my dad in 2019.
A bit further away but waaay better organized than Spa.
Looking forward to how the Dutch Village will be there :)
