Now the dust has settled....there wasn't that much. What were your highs and lows of the F1 world final?
Highs:
Car parking a bit better than usual
Food outlets reasonable on quality and queuing times
Great turn out of drivers and good (if not epic) racing
Good track prep given the weather
Oh and the free vegetarian desert offering was nice (well the blackberries growing behind turn three)

Lows:
P.A system was terrible in at least 3 points around the track (this robbed some folk of a big part of the event)
Scoreboard as hopless as always
Nothing for the kids worth a mention
A dire build up to the big race and a equally lacklustre presentation
Traffic lights sometimes not in sync with the starter again

Overall (the racing aside) I think this event will be remembered as being the the most low key and unimaginative world final in the last 40 years. To try and be constructive I would say that the event was not a total disater from a promotional point of view.......it can still serve as a bad example which others will hopefully not try to replicate.

I think I might have mentioned this once before and Mr Heaver claims to have had meetings with their team to learn from each other.
So take a look at the organisation and slick presentation offered here http://www.santapod.co.uk/e_europe_finals.php
Ps. Kids under 16 go free.
Pps. Live free tv web stream...... how do they do it?

Just been looking back to the "glory days". I noticed it was Belle Vue's world final in 1975 and a entrance ticket to the popular enclosure was 50p for an adult and the world final winner picked up 400. So looking at this years entrance fee and working on the same ratio (800 times the entrance fee) we would have been looking at a winners prize of 27500. Or looking at the prize of 6700 then the entrance fee ratio would be about 8.50.
