F1 prediction: Win 2 top grandstand tickets for British GP
Posted By: James Allen  |  25 Jun 2010   |  2:40 pm GMT  |  872 comments

I’m delighted to be able to offer two top of the range grandstand seats for the British Grand Prix on 11 July, courtesy of my sponsor FX Pro, the Forex trading company which sponsors Virgin Racing.

You could be trackside at Silverstone in two weeks time (Darren Heath)


All you have to do to enter is leave a comment and predict what the margin will be in qualifying at Valencia between the two Virgin drivers and in whose favour. The times in F1 are measured to 1/1000ths of a second. So for example if you think Timo Glock will be faster, you might answer “Glock by 0.123 secs”. Please do remember the three digits after the decimal point.

To give you a guide, in Turkey Glock was faster than DI Grassi by 1.245 secs. In Montreal the gap was down to 0.734s again in Glock’s favour.

In the event that no-one gets the correct answer, the person getting the closest to the time will be the winner. If two people get the same correct answer, the one who posted first wins. If one of the drivers fails to set a time, the person who predicts that wins.

Obviously, as with the Fans Forum, only people who are able to physically get to the event should answer. If you are in Canberra with no chance of getting a flight, please don’t enter and spoil it for everyone else. Or enter for fun, but declare that you do not wish to claim the prize.

Entries must be in by 12-00hrs UK time on Saturday 26 June.

We will send the tickets and information pack out early next week.

The full JA on F1 Silverstone package courtesy of FX Pro

· Premium grandstand tickets to Saturday and Sunday’s events

· Large TV screens so you don’t miss one second of action

· Packed lunch with Virgin Racing cool bag

· A tour of the Virgin Racing garage, F1 Paddock and autographed team merchandise

· Kangaroo TV set

· Official F1 Programme

· Virgin Racing ticket lanyard with map, time table and Virgin Racing info

· Virgin Racing gift bag

Good Luck!

79

I reckon Glock by 1.235s.

I have a question which I was hoping you might be able to help with, I'm going to Monza this year and was hoping to hire a Kangaroo TV but it isn't available, do you know of any other way to follow the race from the track?

80

Buy a UHF scanner for £100 or so and scan through until you find some English commentary. You'll find some team radio frequencies too

81

OK, let's go for 0.555

Last year's Silverstone was my first ever GP, atmosphere was incredible.

82

(Glock!)

83

In favour of Glock - 0.450

84

Great prize. I say:

Glock by 0.255 sec

85

Glock by 0.982 seconds

86

"Glock by 0.555 secs"

87

Glock to be 0.650 faster than Di Grassi

88

90
Alex O'Donnell

The gap between the Virgin cars will be 0.584 secs in favour of T.Glock (spinning like a clock)

91

I feel compelled to comment as a regular but non-contributing reader for the past two seasons, particularly as this such a great prize.

Here goes:

Glock by 0.560 seconds.

92

Glock by 0.812 secs

93

Timo Glock by 0.954s now, I do not have a psssport so I could say playing merely to see how close, however if I won I would immediately get a passport to partake in the event. My last live grand prix attended was the British Gp in 1996 where Jacques won and I wore my country flag proudly. Damon most at track remember was towed for the fans after the race, and both Ferraris went out.

Best of luck to all.

94
Richard Dreyer

I think Glock will be 0.846 seconds ahead.

95

I predict 0.727 in favour of Glock.

Thanks for the really cool fan initiatives lately. See you at the FOTA fans forum. I can't wait.

147

Glock by 0.418 secs

149

Another tough day for Virgin, especially Timo today. Really illustrates that in some respects, the in-season testing ban hinders as much as it helps. Whilst the "arms race" to resource and fund test teams (benefitting the rich teams) is eliminated, the new teams are forced to make painfully slow advances in their development due to the lack of track time (and the track time they DO get is under the full glare of the world's media). I think some limited in-season testing should be permitted, to give the smaller teams more chance to develop their cars, give the test and reserve drivers more track time and perhaps reduce the rule bending which sees teams stretch the spirit of the rules permitting demonstration/media days.

Glock by 0.874

150

I reckon it'll be 0.726 in Glock's favour.

Where do we go to enter. Surely you don't want us to enter our times in Comments. If we are not able to attend, might we donate the prize to a known poor soul in England that is an F1 fanatic but can't afford to subsidize CVC and Bernie.

242

Your email address comes through to me, so I can contact the winner. You may donate the tickets to someone who is able to attend
