B A F E D
There are two more spots for spectators in the rear section of the track. Grandstand E seating may be the secret trump card in terms of price and view. The entire inner portion of the track from T4 to T9 is visible in addition to the fastest dramatic T2 and the long following straight.
The general admission D area is located immediately after Turn 1 on the outside. A good viewing point for any start collisions. The area near the top has views of Turn 10 - a popular overtaking spot.
Grandstand B offers views of the start/finish straight and especially the run into Turn 1. This is the fastest part of the track. It is also the largest grandstand with great fan atmosphere. The views of the main straight as well as the inner portion of the track with T10 to T12 chicanes and the final long straight. Turns T5, T6, T7 and T8 are best viewed from higher seats.
Grandstand A is the best choice for uncertain weather conditions or scorching sun. Its the only roof-covered grandstand on site. It also provides easy access to the paddock, VIP area and a view of the pit lane. Track visibility is about 70-80% and it also overviews the starting grid.
This general admission hill overviews the second crest. Heavy braking into T3 at the end of a long straight is a must see. You can follow the race cars all the way up to T8 and as they power up the third crest and later into the final "parabolica"

Stand D

The natural Stand F hill seating area is just past the 2nd straight. Dramatic braking into T3 after going all out through the straight is something you have to see with your own eyes. You can watch the racers all the way up to T6 with the added bonus of watching them come out of the 4th straight at full throttle up until the next to last curve at T13 and as they come out onto the main straight.

Regular binoculars are an excellent choice, even though most of the track is visible to the naked eye. Binoculars really help uncover a lot of hidden details. Race speaker commentary is clearly audible from the public announce system at all the stands and is sure to give your race experience an added dimension. It's also a better idea to sit here with a poncho, rather than an umbrella, in case of inclement weather. Races are a thrill and grand adventure for the future race drivers among us but don't forget to bring appropriate hearing protection. The revving of the motors can be very loud, in particular if you are close to the track.
