    I was thinking of going... but cannot find anyone to look after the kids, as i would imagine it will be really busy and noisy anyway... shame as it would be good.

    As far as parking is concerned there is the furthest north tube station (cockfosters lol)just inside the M25. Get a long stay ticket and leave it there. I used to do that.

    Here's a pic of Nigel Mansell coming off Regent Street onto Piccadilly Circus. Just after this pic was taken, he RIPPED that Jordan car down the straight. Was a sight to behold for all of 2 seconds

    Here's the Toyota that followed Mansell's Jordan. Driven by Brazilian, Cristiano da Matta

    Right after this pic was taken the driver done a proper burnout right in front of us before shooting down the straight. The smoke from the tyres wafted over us.. and he left a 10-metre long skidmark on the road[/img]

    Looked very popular !

    They have to do it , although they'd need really good security to stop nutters getting on the track.

    London was a bit chaotic cos of the road closures. A few underground stations had to be closed im sure Oxford circus was not sure about wich others, so im not quite sure about the practicality of it. But who cares about practicality? It was awesome to see F1 cars going through the streets of London. Many were comparing it to Monaco. So many people turned up you couldnt move.

    We were pretty late, got there for 5. Luckily they were just setting up barriers where we were standing so we got front row . Felt sorry for people who said they had been waiting since 11 am and didnt get to see anything.
