Anyone been to one before?

I'll be in the area for a week over this weekend.

Long story short, back in Aug 18 we booked a nice place local to the circuit for a week. It was based on risk, hoping that the VLN 6 hr would be on over this weekend. Having looked back it has typically been on the middle weekend in Aug hence why we spunked out on it. For 2019, it's on 3rd Aug. The twats. Anyway......

.....No loss. There's plenty of other shit to see & do. However, seeing as the Masters is on we'll go watch that instead. From a spectators perspective, is it as good as the VLN for pit walks etc? (yes, I know it's only on the GP circuit). Do you get the same experience as you do in the paddock with the VLN?
