    Anyone think the Silver badge is worth the upgrade from Bronze? I’ve had a race day pit pass for years but it’s awfully crowded on race day and there’s so much going on outside of the pits race morning.

    No, stay with the Bronze. It wasn't worth the money I tried taking photos and was constantly hassled by the yellow shirts. I never got in the way of teams working or pit areas.

    I paid it last year, but I guess it would be up to whoever is paying the extra $500. To me it was nice but I won't do it again. I never was hassled, but I just felt in the way sometimes.

    Update: I went ahead an upgraded. It only cost an extra $250 for two Silver badges as I’m a LPS. I usually attend at least an hour, if not more, of every practice. When May rolls around I’m out of the office at 3pm sharp and headed to the West side.

    I got a bronze again this year. I'm also taking off work the day after qualifying cause it got me on the other side of the fence last year.

    I've got a silver badge from an employee I know the last couple years but I would never pay for the upgrade. The only benefit is it gets you in the pits on non-race days and while that's cool for a minute you really can't see much, hard to get any good photos, there's constantly people trying to run you over, and I can't help but feel I'm in the way of the teams. Hope you enjoy yours though!
