Hi...

Can someone please confirm the prices for FRIAT 20 and what discount you get for being a re-booker?

Many thanks
:)

Hi there,
For 2020 FRIAT (will be my third Mach 3 in a row), I have been charged £230.00. This includes a little discount for being a returning booker.

Hope that helps...

The longer you remain a loyal, returning and unbroken booker, you get a slightly bigger discount up to a maximum :smile:

Full price is £250/£230/£210 for Mach 3/2/1.

Loyalty discount on Mach 3 at least is a tenner a year up to three years maximum, so for a long term member renewal is £220.

Having been a member since 1983 I have Mach 1 for £180. (Long term member discount! They should be paying me to go!)

I guess you'll be ok for an all upfront booking, but I gather that if you wanted to pay in instalments you needed to be registered some time ago. I got my email for making payments yesterday. £270 for almost a newbie Mach 3.

Its tricky to answer that question for you cos what something is worth varies that much between everyone, but from my point of view FRIAT - especially at Mach3 level - is tremendously good value for money. Five days access, with a great viewing spot (crowd line or grandstand) but above all the comfort of being able to saunter in and out when you like, having facilities at hand etc etc is well worth the fee.

I dropped out of FRIAT after years of being a member some time ago when it all stretched to a five day commitment, I had baby children, all those things, and after several years of doing the event without my FRIAT privileges it was inevitable I was going back. For me, it makes the event on the whole much more pleasant.

the viewing spot and being able to have easy access to facilities is one of the major draws.
being on my own this time round i dont want to have the hassle of fighting for a spot, then having to do it all again when i go for a piss. even last year, when i did get a good spot some 7ft tall bloke with a step ladder, would magically appear in front of me.
i was looking at a mach 2 package and do 4 days, but given at the moment the price difference is only 20 quid, im tempted to go for the Mach3 whether i go for all 6 days or not.

The final straw for me was having stood in the queue at blue gate I was one of the first in, to find a good few folks already on the show ground and the crowd line at centre was already gone. Obviously one or more of the other gates had opened first. But that was the final straw.. and back to FRIAT I went. And wondered the next year why I hadn't done it years before. It really changes the event. And I don't see that queue any more. :smile:

Is the grandstand the only option for seating or can you take your own seat and sit infront of the grandstand?

You're able to sit in front of the grandstand but space is at a premium and fills quickly.
