Joining us at #FirestoneGP?  Here’s the 411 on where to sit.

Choosing where to sit can be exciting yet confusing, especially for new fans. Whether it’s a Grandstand seat or a General Admission ticket, there are a lot of choices at the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg presented by RP Funding! Don’t worry, we’re here to guide you through the viewing options and vantage points with expert advice.

What are the Pits?

The Pits is a lot of things- it’s where the teams & crews watch and communicate with their drivers during the race to help guide them, it’s where drivers make a "pit-stop" so that their tires can be changed and cars refueled and it’s where teams try to fix any car problems that may happen during the race. The pit is action packed and exciting!

WHAT IS A PADDOCK?!?!

The Paddock is like the locker room by comparison to hockey, football, basketball or baseball.  It is better known as the GARAGE area in the racing industry. Whenever the cars are not on the race track during an event weekend they will be found inside the Paddock. Race teams are assigned a space for housing each car and accompanying equipment, and the impressive, purpose-built transporter trucks transform into a fully functional temporary garage for race weekend.
