WELCOME This year is our thirtieth anniversary and looking back over the years our business has changed dramatically. Just looking at the technology we use in marketing our product would be considered science fiction thirty years ago. It’s not just cell phones and the Internet either, motorsport has developed in ways we could not imagine. Television captures all the action on the track and the tracks have become works of art. In Austin in November we saw the ultimate in track design. The track in New Jersey will be equally as exciting. A certain Mr. E seems to realize that the United States is as large as Europe and other race locations are being considered. When it comes to racing Formula 1 has become the most exciting motor-sport series with world-wide appeal. New races seem to be popping up all over the globe. We’ve always preferred to go to Monza or Monte Carlo than staying at home, now there are the delights of Singapore, Abu Dhabi and of course Austin. Over the next five years or so Formula 1 will grow like soccer and become a firm American favorite. We on our part have got some really exciting programs to offer. Our twenty year relationship with James Allen and Peter Windsor has blossomed. James and Peter have agreed to become celebrity hosts on some of our events. Peter will be with the group for the Italian and British Extravaganza’s and James will continue to host our talk shows. Look out for many upgrades in future programs as we follow Formula 1 through its best years. Thanks for celebrating 30 years with us!

QUICK – can you name the second smallest country that takes less than an hour to walk across, is inhabited by mostly foreigners and the entire population lives in it’s one and only city? On paper it doesn’t seem very impressive, but Monaco is synonymous with glamour and exclusivity (along with being a tax haven). During the Grand Prix sponsors throw money around like there is no tomorrow and the F1 circus is in full song - all the pomp and circumstance, ritz and glitz, shows the glamorous side of F1. Arguably for some, it is the most esteemed motor race on the calendar and if you get your name on the trophy here you know you're a quality driver.

TRACKSIDE VIEWING OPTIONS

To see the cars reach the speeds they do in such a confined area is incredible. It's also a testament to the talent of the drivers. Anyone can drive fast on a wide, smooth racing circuit but the bravery factor definitely comes into play at Monaco; you can fluke a win in F1...but you don't fluke a win at Monaco.

Café de Paris Watch from the rooftop as the cars brake to maneuver through the tight turns and accelerate out toward the Fairmont Monte Carlo, or from inside at a table with a glass of wine on the restaurant's closed circuit television. Either way the sights and sounds are amazing. Includes lunch and 1/2 bottle of wine.

FAIRMONT ROOFTOP Uncovered grandstand seating looking directly down on the famous Loews hairpin. Open bar and snacks are included. This option is only available for guests staying at the hotel.

GrandstandS Grandstand B is located at the Casino, offers a fantastic view of the right-hand turn up from the Hotel de Paris and close-up views of the cars as they accelerate out of the turn through the short straight to the Fairmont Hotel. Grandstand K is the main grandstand and offers a view of the harbor and the cars coming out of the chicane. Grandstand T offers a great view of the expanded F1 Pits. A big screen TV is adjacent to all grandstands.

TERRACE viewing Caravelles Rooftop & Ermanno Terrace 6th Floor are two of the best viewing options in Monaco! Located on Blvd. Albert, about 3/4 of the way down from the start/finish before the 1st turn. Viewing is superb; you can see the start/finish straight, pit lane, all the way up the hill to the Casino, and the chicane all the way to Rascasse. Highly recommended. Included each day are breakfast, a full catered 1st class hot and cold buffet lunch, afternoon tea and open bar with champagne, wine, beer and soft drinks. With the purchase of a Saturday or Sunday Grandstand B, K or T ticket you will have access to the pits on Friday afternoon from 2:30 pm - 6:00 pm. Pit access is subject to FIA regulations. Access to the pits on Friday is not included with the Fairmont, Caravelles Rooftop or Ermanno Terrace options.

CANADIAN GRAND PRIX Montreal, Canada, June 9 WHEN our neighbor to the north hosts F1 in

Party on Crescent Street

RACE TICKETS

mid June there is reason to celebrate. Fans descend onto Montreal by the masses diving head first into the fanfare, parties, pageantry and high rolling that inevitably go hand in hand with Formula One racing. And they love it! The race track was originally called the テ四e NotreDame Circuit but changed names in 1982 after Quebec racing hero Gilles Villeneuve died in a crash at the Belgian Grand Prix. And while the actual race is about two hours long the brouhaha emanating from those 120 minutes easily covers a week. Practice, qualifying, street fairs, vintage cars, live shows, choice people watching... there's more than enough action on and off the track that make the Canadian Grand Prix a fan favorite!

2012 RACE FACTS

Formula 1 can bring out the most adrenaline-fuelled emotions in someone and 2013 looks to have six World Champions - all with egos crazier than one of Eddie Jordan's shirts. Who knows what will happen next year at Silverstone? One thing is for sure - Webber wants to defend his win, Alonso looks to take back the lead, hometown hero Hamilton hopes to take the checkered flag for the first time since 2008 and Button wants vindication at a track that has outsmarted him since his F1 career began. Join us for what is shaping up to be an exciting race!

$850 (2012 price)

A , B & D tickets include a roving seat on Friday and Saturday in any “open to the public” roving grandstand, and a reserved seat in your allocated grandstand on Sunday (covered).

Time/Winner: Team: # of Times Held:

PREDICTING what the English weather will do in the summer months has been about as easy as guessing the numbers on a lottery ticket. Last year’s rain of biblical proportions left team strategists with an extremely taxing job trying to decide how long to run on their limited allocation of wet weather or intermediate tires during practice, as well as trying to make a call on qualifying. For Alonso and Webber, the race was another intriguing battle of race strategy and ultimately Red Bull’s tactic paid dividends with Webber reeling in and passing Alonso.

GERMAN GRAND PRIX *Nürburgring, Germany, July 7 'You're hot then you're cold / You're

yes then you're no / You're in then you're out / You're up and you're down.' Yeah, these lyrics could very well be the theme song trying to schedule the 2013 German Grand Prix… ‘Nürgurgring / Hockenheim / Nürburgring / no Nürburgring / yes to Nürburgring’. For the record, we are pleased to see it remain on the calendar. Honestly, we really couldn’t fathom the automotive world without the mecca of speed that is the Nürburgring track. This tricky piece of German racing asphalt has been the birthplace for many of the most exciting cars in the world, demands a car that is well balanced for high, medium and low speed corners (which isn’t easy) and offers the action and drama of a thrilling Formula 1 race with lots of overtaking and passing. Take advantage of the opportunity to watch Nürburgring racing at it's best - while it's still on the calendar!

Stirling Moss once said "There is so much more to racing when it’s dangerous, because the exhilaration of success is far higher". He might as well have been talking about Spa Francorchamps. Iconic? Yes. Historic? Yes. Exciting? Yes. Unpredictable weather? Yes. It has ALL the boxes checked. Synonymous with Spa is Eau Rouge, which may just be the most famous circuit-curve of all circuits in the world. Why? Well, scenery aside, the thing that makes this snaking piece of tarmac so special is the one thing that is so difficult to convey, its gradient. This corner is a steep, wild, violent complex series of curves with a blind exit taken at full throttle following a long downhill straight in top gear. Spa demands respect and no circuit offers better raw racing than this one. Treat yourself to once in a lifetime memories at the famed Spa Francorchamps!

SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX Singapore, September 22 The words "luxury, glamour and F1" are usually followed by ‘Monaco Grand Prix’. If the aforementioned combo has been a dream of yours but Monaco’s hefty price tag sent that dream up in a puff of smoke, start packing because we’ve got good news for you! The Singapore Grand Prix may as well be Asia’s version of Monaco but with a few extra perks. Just like its European rival, Singapore abounds with gorgeous historic architecture, luxury and wealth but also gives you an exotic locale and modern skyscrapers at a fraction of the cost. Singapore is one of 4 street circuits and as street circuits go it’s pretty much on par with the others. BUT how many street circuits race under the lights? And offer a free Katy Perry concert? So what are you waiting for? It’s time to start packing!

ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, November 3 RACE TICKETS

ABU

Dhabi has the unique distinction of being the only twilight race on the F1 calendar and when the lights are turned on, Yas Marina becomes the largest lit permanent sports venue in the world. The aesthetic impact of a race which starts in sunshine and finishes under artificial light is stunning to the ticket holder, but the flip side of that coin is the bulk of pressure that falls on tire strategists dealing with dropping track temperatures as the race progresses. It has been said in the past that Yas Marina was a dull track with little opportunity for passing but the 2012 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was anything but dull! The desert race exploded with drama and excitement, giving us one of the best races of the year. Well, actually, what happened in the Emirates wasn't just a race; it was a free-for-all battle scene and everyone was thrown into the fray. Men clashed, men crashed, Rosberg went flying and Hamilton was sent to an early grave retirement; Alonso did more with his car than many thought possible, Vettel was pounded into the ground but fought his way back to the front, and an old warrior that we haven't heard from in a long time, Kimi Räikkönen, rose from the sands to claim the day. It's action like this that keeps us coming back for more!

FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIXTM Austin, Texas, November 17 REMEMBER

your favorite roller coaster ride when you were a kid? As soon as you got off you ran back in line because you just HAD to ride it one more time? That’s how we feel about the USGP in Austin! Any doubts that the Circuit of the Americas would produce a ‘passing’ race were well and truly laid to rest with a tremendous return to the US by Formula One. The grandstands feature excellent views of more than a single corner or straightaway and the layout allowed for enough passes throughout the field that it was easy to lose count - when was the last time you could say that about a Formula One race? We aren’t stretching the truth when we say it was probably the best race of the year at the best F1 facility on the calendar. So, anyone want to get back in line with us for next year's race?

YOU have to travel far and wide to find someone who hasn't heard of the Indianapolis 500. Barcelona, Spain...heard of it, Cozumel, Mexico...heard of it, Edinburgh, Scotland...heard of it. The Indy 500 has grown from a one-day race into more of a phenomenon. Even the locals tell you there's something special about Indianapolis in the merry month of May. There are many other auto races, but the mystique of Indy stands alone. For over 100 years the 2 and 1/2 mile oval has stood the test of time. Indy, Formula One, NASCAR and MotoGP have all run on the famed track. Completed in 1909 and paved with 3.2 million bricks, it's still referred to as the "Brickyard", but only the start/finish line is bricked now, for nostalgia’s sake.

Back in those days, mechanics rode along with the drivers, but at the first race, driver Ray Harroun had no mechanic in his car (the other 39 drivers did). Instead, he mounted a rearview mirror to watch for traffic. Auto historians claim it was the first ever usage of such a mirror. Thanks to his new invention Harroun won the race, amid some controversy. 2012 saw a record setting 35 lead changes and was one of the most competitive Indy 500s in recent memory with a nail biting final 6 laps. From the first 500 to the most recent, there is never a dull moment. Consider this our personal invitation to join us as we find out what 2013 has is store!

In July 2010 a man named Tavo Hellmund said he had a longtime relationship with family friend Bernie Ecclestone, and it was this unique status, he proclaimed, that would allow him to succeed where whoknows-how-many others had failed. He would build a state-of-the-art F1 mega circuit in the wholly obvious location of Elroy, Texas, about 20 minutes outside of hip and thriving Austin. Approximately 120,000 fans would flock - oh, this was going to happen. Many didn’t believe it. There was little reason to when you considered F1's history in this country. And despite other’s disbelief, Hellmund and motorcycle racing legend Kevin Schwantz trudged through problem after problem, facing numerous issues that threatened the USGP in Austin. But in the end (cue the music) the crowds did flock and stared wide-eyed at the gorgeous 3.4-mile circuit that was everything he said it would be – the best facility showcased the best race of 2012. All right, now that the credits have rolled you are probably wondering what this has to do with MotoGP. Well, it only makes sense that after the success of F1, MotoGP gets a turn. And you know it will be good! As a complete, modern facility, the Circuit of the Americas stands absolutely unrivaled by any racing venue on this continent. Period. And as for the views? Excellent sightlines and the grandstands offer great views of more than a single corner or straightaway. If you love MotoGP, the circuit is the ice cream and the vibrant city of Austin is the cherry on top. It doesn’t get better than this!

V8 SUPERCARS AUSTIN Austin, Texas, May 19 NASCAR

is as American as apple pie and V8 Supercar is as Australian as Vegemite. The love of V8 Supercar is no longer limited to the land down under as they have branched out globally to New Zealand, Bahrain and Abu Dhabi. The search for a venue to host the first V8 Supercars race in the United States ranked high on the list of priorities for series CEO Tony Cochrane, and less than a month later they found a partner in the new Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. While some American fans are unfamiliar with the size and importance of Australian's No. 1 racing series, it doesn't take long to appreciate how deeply ingrained it has become in the culture. V8 Supercars is on par with what we have here with NASCAR (it is one of the country’s top three sports) in terms of the level of interest and support it receives from fans. NASCAR fans tend to be more loyal to the driver, but with the V8s it's all about manufacturer loyalty. They have their driver favorites, but if you're a Blue Oval fan, that never changes, and vice versa.

RACE TICKETS

V8 isn’t just about the race; it’s just as much about the show. The V8 series have become event specialists - never is there a dull moment. Their thought is that if you’ve paid money to sit in the stands, you will be entertained every moment of the day. Who can argue with that philosophy? So when the Aussie’s head to Austin to bash a few fenders and make their USA introduction, why not join them and be part of this Inaugural event?

AND NOW A PREVIEW Just a little taste for what we’re planning for 2014

SNEAK PEEK INTO 2014 AS Formula One grows into a major

world-wide series we find that to get the best hotels and most exclusive programs we are arranging programs up to two years in advance. Here are some of the really exciting events due in 2014! Three major new 2014 races: The Russian Grand Prix, The Grand Prix of America at Port Imperial, The Mexican Grand Prix, along with our Ship in the Harbor for the Monaco Grand Prix.

With a clear intention of having a full World Championship that takes place on every continent and major country, 2014 brings the Grand Prix to Russia. St Petersburg hosted the last Grand Prix one hundred years ago and the new race will take place in the Black Sea resort of Sochi at the Olympic Park circuit. Sochi has a sub tropical climate with a history that dates back to Roman times. Formula One has a reputation of promoting races in exciting locations and there can be no better backdrop than the Manhattan skyline, across the Hudson from Port Imperial and the site of the 2014 Grand Prix of America. Built through the New Jersey towns of West New York and Weehawken the track climbs the 300 feet high Hudson Palisades running 3.2 miles through the cities before returning to the start and finish line at Port Imperial. Just imagine staying in Manhattan with its restaurants and shows. It is natural that Mexico will host a race in 2014 backed by the Slim family who support the two Mexican drivers taking part in F1. Will it take place in Mexico City or in one of Mexico’s beautiful resort area’s. We think Cancun but your guess is as good as ours. It takes considerable planning to bring a small cruise ship into the harbor in Monaco at a price that will make you jump for glee. All we can say is that we have been working on this since June 2012 and are delighted that we will make an announcement soon.

Thirty to forty-four days before the tour begins, cancellations will result in a loss of 45% of the total price (65% for Monaco, Singapore, Abu Dhabi and United States GP’s). Twenty-nine days or less before the tour begins there will be no refund. All race tickets are non-refundable regardless of when cancellation was made. Refunds are subject to a credit card surcharge fee. Changes in the Reservations: Changes made to confirmed reservations will be charged a $45 fee. Any changes made within 30 days of the date the tour begins will be charged a $75 fee. No changes will be allowed within seven days of the date the tour begins. Please note, a cancellation is not covered by the change policy. For cancellations, please see Cancellation Policy. Late Fees: A late fee in the amount of $25 will apply to any balance due to Grand Prix Tours that is more than 7 days past due. After 14 days a $50 late fee will apply and so on in increments of $25 for every week past due. This fee is non-negotiable, so please be sure to make payments in a timely matter. Pit Tours: The different sanctioning bodies, not GPT, set the rules for pit tours. GPT and its clients must follow these rules at all times. Visa: It is the responsibility of all tour members to obtain all necessary visa and passport documents. If you have any questions, please contact GPT or the consulate of the country to be visited. Race Cancellations: GPT will not be held responsible for race cancellations. If a race is canceled, GPT will attempt to make new travel and hotel arrangements, if available, at clients cost. Motor Racing and Racing schools: GPT is not responsible for any damage, injury or death to persons or property taking part in race schools or attending motor sports events. Responsibility: The tour services described in this brochure, including without limitation transportation, lodging, and sightseeing, are provided by carriers, hoteliers, and other suppliers that are independent contractors and not the agents, employed partners, or joint venturers of GPT. GPT issues tickets, vouchers, race tickets and other travel documents for such services merely as an agent for the companies that furnish such services. Such tickets, vouchers, race tickets, and other travel documents are subject to all terms and conditions of the respective suppliers (some of which may limit or exclude the suppliers liability). GPT is not responsible for typographical and/or printing errors. GPT nor any subagent, shall not be responsible for any damage to property or death or injury to person, resulting from any act or omission of any supplier providing any tour service or any other entity or caused by strike, war, acts of terrorism, weather, quarantine, sickness, government restriction or regulation, or any other cause beyond its reasonable control. Circumstances beyond our control could force us to alter, revise, or cancel any product outlined in this brochure. If GPT cancels a tour for which you have received final confirmation of deposit, we will attempt to offer an alternate product of similar standards. The tour participant waives all rights which he or she may have against GPT in connection with the foregoing. Terms and conditions are governed by California law and an Orange County venue. Under no circumstances is GPT to be construed as a carrier for safe carriage of the passenger or his or her baggage and belongings. Travel Documents: Final documents are sent by overnight delivery about two weeks before tour begins. Delivery charges will be added on your invoice. Sweepstakes & Prize Winners: At the time of booking, GPT must be made aware if the reservation is to be awarded to a sweepstakes, contest or prize winner. Furthermore, details of the contest must be disclosed to GPT and a copy of all documentation provided to the winner by the sweepstakes company about the prize must be submitted to GPT. Tour Photos: All photos and videos taken by GPT may be used for any reason, at any time, without permission of the client. This brochure and reservation form are valid for tours operated between February 2013 and February 2014.
