Where do I start!!!!!
What a day, got to Silverstone abut 2hours early, so killed a bit of time listening to the Jordan F1 car blatting about, too quick!!!! And some of the drift academy stuff too.
I had parked in front of a nice black Astra so the Mrs said we should flyer it, as I walked back over, what should be there....but another Astra, a red GSi. "That looks like Hev! Shit the bed, it is Hev!!!!" That was one hell of a surprise!! Made my day!!
Anyway, the driving stuff, had a half hour briefing session about what to do etc, then we were let loose in the Formula Firsts behind the pace car for a few laps to get used to the cars, then all 12 of us were let loose on a random grid. I started 2nd on the grid, managed to overtake the person in 1st after 2laps, then eventually started lapping people. Was 6th fastest of the day, with a time of 50:21.
Then on to the pub for Hev's fix of Stella!!!!!
Had an awesome day which I will never forget! Thanks to Hev for driving half way down the country to be there too!!! And a big thanks to Marlene for arranging it all for me!
A couple of photos, before Hev puts some embarrassing ones up!
Red ones go faster!!!! Ask Hev!
