British GP pricing announced – over a ton for Sunday alone

Hot on the heels of the announcement that Silverstone has signed a long term deal for the British Grand Prix, pricing has been announced on their website.

WIth general admission starting at £103, an uncovered grandstand at £157 and a covered grandstand at £220, it's one hell of a day out.  £880 for a family of four in a covered grandstand seems pretty extortionate to me.  

With little or no discount for children and the only real discount coming from a 3 day ticket, it's hardly a triumph for the fan who wants to visit in the flesh.  Looks like I'll be watching it on TV as usual.
