11tenths should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Monaco GP Online Ticketing Drama

Has anyone purchased tickets online for the Monaco GP? I'm interested in a pair of seats in the numbered seating area but have yet to find a website that will both:

1. Give me some sense of where those seats are in the section (no description given for numbering system within the section). I don't want to end up with a view of some lamer F1 cameraman's rear end while he's busy missing the action on the track.

2. Guarantee I have two seats next to one another

Also-

Is there any particular reason why some resellers are charging north of 100 Euros more for some tickets than the ACM (www.acm.mc) is selling theirs for? You get a free carwash with that or what?

Thanks for any and all suggestions/prior experiences!

I believe it is called capitalism

The clue too your question is in the word 'reseller' - why shouldn't they charge whatever they can get !

Thanks for all the heads up - Here's what I learned from my recent experience buying tickets for the 2005 Monaco GP:

1) All sites selling tickets will describe where the section is you are purchasing tickets along the circuit, however, within some sections seats may be assigned with a seat number. I could not find a guide as to how each section is lettered/numbered.

2) The price delta for tickets within the same section (but different seats within that section, I assume) on different websites was indescribably large - over 100 Euros in some cases, with the acm.mc website offering tickets at face value. Why you would pay one site extra $$ for a ticket within the same section isn't clear when really you've no clue where the seats are within a section. That seems a bit optimistic in terms of pricing. There could be a Grand Prix awarded after the race for highest price paid for a ticket above face value, in which case I must remember to bring the yacht next time and heli into town! Right!

3) As of yesterday, I didn't find it too terribly difficult to purchase my tickets once I realized that the available tickets on the acm.mc website updated periodically for some reason - you could do a search then and find different seats on different attempts at looking up your desired section.

4) Finding two seats together in K7 was difficult!

11 tenths - if you go to the race do let us know what the seats you had were like

given even at face value they are so expensivet this information is really useful
