    I am interested in going to a couple of F1 next season and I was wondering if Ferrari has a program for their customers. I just received my F430 a month ago and would hope that when I spend that kind of dough Ferrari would give us the chance to purchase decent tickets. If this is a no then is there somebody out there whom can offer good tickets. I have attended the Montreal F1 in the past and we had great suite type tickets, that is the only way to see a GP.

    No and GrandPrixTours.com has a pretty good offering.

    LOL, in some cases, you're lucky if buying an F430 gets you an F430...!

    Actually not true, Ferrari does have a client program to attend the GPs, it just doesn't come with a 430 or for free.

    Take a look at the owners site. Prices vary from 3-5000 EUR per person per event. Hospitality, presentations from kimi & filipe, pit visits etc, but VERY expensive. GPtours is probably much cheaper. I personally would rather have regular seats and spend the diff on legendary meals (especially in Montreal with all its great restaurants).

    In past years they have also had an insanely priced package which allows you to travel with the F1 team to a European race, including a seat on the plane. I didn't get the offer this year....maybe they were afraid that Mike Coughlan would show-up.

    You have just come up with an exceptional marketing idea! I REALLY LIKE IT! Too bad they don't need to prop up sales yet.

    Thanks for the input.
    I've sat at the Air Canada suites in Montreal with the complimentary food and booze with basic bus transport from your hotel. I tried the cattle class hairpin on the bleachers. I tried the food at the great restaurants in Montreal (not bad food at New Town (Jaques Villeneuve's place). Now I want it all.

    If you have ever been to a Montreal GP, you've experienced the exodus from the island after each day. It really sucks! Does anybody know how to book those seats that also offer you a helicopter ride from Downtown?
