Got to get myself to a touring car race this year, bet it sounds and looks totally different than on the box.

Where do you get tickets from?

Joey my advice is to have a look atthe track online then try to pick a great advantage point...near a chicane...always a good crash and some bumping ...as long as no one is hurt.....enjoy!!

Go here to look at the map http://www.croftcircuit.co.uk/circfac.php
Great place to stand is on the hill between the two Complexs as you can see right out to the back of the circuit. There is always bumps and nudges as the cars through the Complex before the hairpin. Another place to see good action is at the Chicane
