Fans can bid for VIP F1 passes for several European GPs

tom-pryce

F1 fans have a rare chance to bid for Formula One paddock passes with team hospitality for two at each of the nine European Grands Prix.

For nine weeks from 9 February 2009 the Tom Pryce Memorial Trust will be auctioning one pair of passes for a Grand Prix each week, with all the money raised contributing towards a memorial to Tom Pryce in his home town of Ruthin, North Wales.


Tom Pryce is the only Welshman to have won a Formula One race and is also the only one to lead a F1 Grand Prix. He he was killed in a freak accident during the 1977 South African Grand Prix.

Bernie Ecclestone and the Formula 1 teams have offered their support by providing the paddock passes and hospitality. The following passes are available: McLaren Mercedes, Spanish GP (May 8-10); Force India, Monaco GP (May 21-24); Toyota, Turkish GP (June 5-7); Williams, British GP (June 19-21); Renault, German GP (July 10-12); BMW Sauber, Hungarian GP (July 24-26); Toro Rosso, European GP Valencia (August 21-23); Red Bull, Belgian GP (August 28-20) and Ferrari, Italian GP (September 11-13).

Auction schedule:

Spanish Grand Prix: Mon 9 Feb – Fri 13 Feb
Monaco Grand Prix: Mon 16 Feb – Fri 20 Feb
Turkish Grand Prix: Mon 23 Feb – Fri 27 Feb
British Grand Prix: Mon 2 Mar – Fri 6 Mar
German Grand Prix: Mon 9 Mar – Fri 13 Mar
Hungarian Grand Prix: Mon 16 Mar – Fri 20 Mar
European Grand Prix: Mon 23 Mar – Fri 27 Mar
Belgian Grand Prix: Mon 30 Mar – Fri 3 Apr
Italian Grand Prix: Mon 6 Apr – Fri 10 Apr

Well, let’s see how high will the fans go. My guess is the winning bids will be seriously higher than prices of the “regular” Paddock Passes … The fact that each new bid must be at least GBP100 higher than the previous bid shown sort of suggests what kind of winning bids the organizers expect.
