Cheaper to fly to Monaco and watch it there.

Is that the cheapest place to see a GP live? (Where totalCost = ticketprice + transportPrice)

I think its Belgian grandprix which is cheapest. But considering how expensive Monaco is, its still cheaper to go out there and watch a grand prix than Silverstone. But again, british grandprix gets sold out no matter what the cost is.

But the money always goes to a good cause: Bernie Ecclestone's daughter buying most expensive house in the U.S. (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/06/15/bernie-ecclestones-daughter-buying-most-expensive-house-in-the/)

Best place to watch a GP is Europe, and Spa is my favourite. Camping best option, as its a good crack out there

Anyone been to a Grand Prix? Would it be a nightmare with a disabled person?

Mother a big GP fan. Got a big birthday next year - thinking it would be nice to treat her, but not sure about the practicalities - she can hobble a short distance on crutches, but realistically looking at wheelchair.

Well, Alonso complains endlessly that the Ferrari this year is slow, but still I think your mother will struggle. Maybe wet weather and an early change to Slicks? Could be worth the gamble. Talk it over with her.

Its out in the sticks, so given the state of British public transport you probably will get to drive a car that day

I used to go watch the F1 tests at Silverstone, which sadly they don't do anymore. I remember on a few occasions there were people in wheelchairs in a special area at the front, and pleant of ramps everywhere. This is the 21st century after all.

I saw an ad for weekend tickets for the Monaco GP, including hotel and a view from a balcony somewhere. "From 3000EUR per person".

Indian GP is probably quite cheap.
