OT: Anyone here ever attend the British GP @ silverstone?

I feel very cheated from attending the USGP this past weekend at Indy and for some reason feel the need to get satisfaction from experiencing a real F1 race this year regardless of what a farce the whole thing seems to be right now. I've got F1 blue balls and the soonest one that fits my schedule is the British GP. I have the usual questions... what kind of tickets to get?/what grandstands?/is this a worthwhile venue?/etc.....

I already have accomodations taken care of since my sister is spending the summer there on some kind of overseas study program through boston university so making the weekend trip to see F1 at silverstone is making lots of sense.

Figured I'd ask here since there seems to be a healthy amount of members from the UK versus other forums I visit.

Don't forget the San Jose Grand Prix right here in Silicon Valley (California) from 7/28-7/31/05:

It's a bit closer than the UK...although both have merits an maybe you can do both...[;)] [:D][8D][:D]

I am planning to take my car on the GP circuit, looks like it will be next year now.
The circuit is about 3.5 miles long, there is plenty of good viewing places, my favourites are the area between Stowe and Club, and Luffield...
