A brilliant race to attend - i can't recommend it enough. Having been to Spa, Monza, Silverstone, Hungaroring, Le Castellet and Barcelona, this is the best organised race in Europe. We flew into Vienna (two hours ish from Heathrow) then hired a car. Its about a two hour drive if you take it easy, roads are quiet and its well signposted. The camping is right next to the circuit (we were in Camping Red), maybe 5 minutes walk to the gate. There are food stalls and clothing stalls on site, but not much choice in terms of variance - its sausage and chips! A few pop up bars as well which adds to the atmosphere. The is also a small supermarket on site, although we didn't use it, it was apparently very sensibly priced . Camping ground is a nice soft field, so easy to pitch up. Toilets were acceptable, although showers were cold! We were in Redbull Tribune Section K. This was a great spot. Good view of exit on turn one, full view of turn two, and good view of turns five, six and seven. With it being a short circuit, you see a lot of action. Commentary is split between english and german, and the screens are plentiful even in general admission. The commentary is also broadcast on 93fm i think. We never once queued to get in -security is there, but unobtrusive. Despite what the sign says, there was no issue with taking beer into the track. Pitwalk on Thursday was the only failure of the weekend- no-one seemed to know what was going on, so we gave up on that and just enjoyed the weather and the view from the pit straight. Most important bits: Beer cost - pint of Heineken was 4.80 euros food cost - tray of chips was 4.00 euros schnitzel burger and chips was 8.50 euros Things to take: seat pad - seats get very hot, and are hard plastic. earplugs for the campsite - the techno stopped about 5am, started about 7am. brolly - weather is changeable, but the sun is brutal and there is little shade. Go - you wont regret it.

My wife and I had a great experience at the 2018 Austrian GP. The circuit is well laid out and the facilities are great. I highly recommend attending the Austrian GP.
