    We set off around 8.00am on Sunday for the drive to Silverstone in Northamptonshire. Traffic wasn't too bad, and we were amazed to see the very quiet M4!





    oooh it's starting to get exciting now!




    oh lookee - a Mustang!




    yaaay! a roadsign for Silverstone!




    hmmm, traffic's getting heavier.....




    YIKES!!





    S'okay - no need to panic. There'd been a 5 car shunt and that's what was blocking the road. Nobody was hurt and we didn't take too long to get past the hold up..........after we cleared that and found a parking space we arrived at around 10.45/11am ish! HURRAH!!

    (urgh! this could take some time as my laptop is realllllly slow!)


    After we went through the gates we somehow managed to find our way to the other side of the track where we sat and waited for the 'Euro Cup Formula Renault 2' - it was a flippin' long walk!



    just waiting around....







    and they're off!










    here it comes - can you see it?






    errr, where'd it go.....

    it's definitely worth thinking about. I'll tell more about it at the end. Was a long walk so you'd need some wheels i 'spect, especially if the weather is as hot as it was.


    the other pics may have to wait til tomorrow - this *thing* is driving me crazy tonight!
