Formula 1 Russia - Sochi Grand Prix schedule

Formula 1 Russia
 Sochi Grand Prix
Where can you really go and see something interesting? Simply, naturally, understandable.  The program of Sochi GP events is divided into races and entertainments at the racing circuit area. I put it all together.

26 SEPTEMBER, THURSDAY
09:00 – 12:30 Pit lane walk for 4-day ticket holders /Entry from 08:50 to 12:00/ 15:50 – 17:45
The best way is to go in the morning because a lot of people would be sleeping. Evening pitlane walk will be with a huge crowd. Only 50- 100 fans get the pitlane last year. After that, pitlane boxes were closed, there was interesting nothing. 
09:00 – 19:00 FORMULA 1 Drivers' Autograph Session Central Square, main stage
Every time it becomes unclear when and which team exactly will give an autograph, but the organizers don't understand too. So, this schedule will be known on the same day. Keep in mind people will be coming at 7 am. We have very strict queues and it is impossible to get to the autograph session, really, only if you are Racing Point F1 fan. 
09:00 – 18:00* Sochi Auto Sport Museum exhibition, World of Illusion and Magic attraction 
The Museum is located to the left after the entrancing to Sochi Racing Circuit and before crossing the bridge. Admission is about $ 10 per person.
09:00 – 19:00* Activities for children and adults: karting, runbikes, dance, art and photo zones, street performers
Nothing interesting.

It is best to prepare in advance and plan your days. You can delete from your diary all 'non- Formula' activities,  and devote time to a walk around the city, the sea.
