Did you get stuck at the GP last year?

Donington Park has launched a £40,000 traffic study to try and beat the traffic madness of last year's British GP (see related article above). Do you think they'll get it right this time or will it continue to get worse?

Did I get stuck at GP in 2004?

No, we got to our bikes and it took @ 20 minutes to get out. But yes, in previous years it's taken over 2 hours because of where we parked. Choice of food and toilet facilities in 2004 were better than in previous years. The number and range of vendors was also quite good (IMHO) However, the actual viewing facilities and toilets could and should be better. The traffic management also drastically needs attention. Given that, it is still arguably the best race event in the UK and certainly up there with Brands and Silverstone WSBK races. It provides a full race event with lots of support racing. Zebd who shall be there again

My dad went with my uncle and they said they were stuck for 6 hours. We thought they were lying but it was on the news next day. I hope it won't be the same if I go next time

be very....

careful what you say... apparently its completely fine and dandy to be still stuck in your car parking space at 10:30 at night - all part of the fun of the British GP! We're all miserable b*ggers who should stay at home this year (see earlier thread if confused)!

Donnington traffic probs

I think they could get it right if they had less brainless idiots on the so called security side and used them to run a system where each carpark had a warden who only let one car out at a time, ie if you had 5 parks a,b,c,d,e let one from a, then one from b etc til you got to e, then start again it might be slow but at least everyone is moving slowly and stood still for up to 7 hours

Donington

No I didn't - not at Donington. We parked half way between Wilson and Donington, and were home within 30 mins of watching Rossi get the cup on the start finish straight(didn't go on bikes due to rain, and passengers not being keen last year). It did, however take over 5 hours to get through Scarperia following Mugello. We did have to walk 5 miles - all the way to Jerez following the race there, coz we couldn't get a taxi. We'll be in Assen next weekend. We'll get a mini bus to take us close, then walk the rest. We'll get a mini bus to pick us up from somewhere not static with traffic. Worst jams I've ever had, Monza & Mugello - both around 5 hours. I'll be there, as ever :)

Donington

I think its a great circuit but a cr*p venue. Having been to Le Mans and Catalunya this year, I've been spoilt..especially as far as Catalunya is concerned. Le Mans - 55euros for 3 day pass, free programme, free grid line-up flyers, No xtra for seating.(Ducati stand excepted) Catalunya - 70 euros for 3 day pass, seat included on race day, brilliant track, brilliant vewing. Donington - 120euros for weekend pass with seat. Why don't they put in other seating areas around the track?. Rip off.
