    I'm considering it, but only as a spectator, won't be heading down the strip.

    Hmmm... still undecided if I'm going or not, I only want to spectate and not hit the strip, so 15 per person, is there anything worth buying whilst I'm there?

    dunno why you don't do the strip as you won't lose your way like at Castle Combe
