The weather was Depends on the weather that weekend, it's mostly beautiful. Wear sunblock. Even in the mid 70s, you'll still burn.

Parking is expensive. $20 to $30 buck per day unless you get 3 day pass. So are food trucks. You might wanna put on the tennis shoes and park in the residential areas nearby...no parking permits needed but keep an eye on signs for street and trash servicr times. Bring your own water otherwise pay $4.00 for tiny bottle.

Didn't spend a lot on assigned seating for the event? don't worry lots of great views and they stop checking if you have an assigned seat. Bring ear plugs and sunblock and drink plenty of beer.

It's cheap and easy - park at any Blue Line station (we parked at Willow with secure parking garage parking) and paid $4.50 each for a round trip pass just for the day. Parking lots close to Ocean Blvd. were charging up to $25 for race day parking. Save some money and take the Blue Line.

The Convention Center hosted several Grand Prix related activities, access to race gear. All and all this was a great experience, one I will repeat and recommend for even those who are not race enthusiast.

The various food options were part of the fun. Awesome that the restaurants along Shoreline to include the Shoreline Village restaurants were open to event attendees. Additionally, the latter locations served as great locations to watch the Grand Prix.

The blue line metro leaves you within walking distance of all activities, 1/2 of a mile.

They say no "stadium seats", but I saw people who got them in, and the aluminum grand stands aren't very comfortable. Might be worth a try to bring a cushion.
