With another two crew members you would have thought we would have been off this morning but we had other plans.. We had tickets to see the British Grand Prix which was a 21st birthday present for David..
We were up early and ready to go at 8.00am. Sarah drove us to the circuit and then returned to Derwent6 .. The weather on Friday was not too clever but we were excited about seeing the cars all be it they were balls of spray when they went past us on their practice sessions.
We hit a bit of traffic but we managed to walk into Terry's 60th Birthday party at 8.45pm.. We were pleased we made it as it was a lovely surprise for her to see us as she thought we wouldn't be able to make it. It was also great to catch up with all the family...
On the Saturday, qualifying day, we were up and out at 8.00am again. We had got it sussed now with the seven mile drive through the lanes to the circuit. We had to walk pass the hotel where the racing drivers were staying. Al got to meet up with Sergio Perez, Jenson Buttons teammate.
When we got back to Derwent6 in the evening we then got ready and went to the Indian restaurant here in Stoke Bruerne called The Spice of Bruerne. We had a nice meal but we all found small bits of plastic in the chutney and ended up getting a free meal for two next time we go.. With full tummies and knackered we fell into bed..
Sunday, Race day.. Up like a lark and excited about the race we got to the circuit a bit earlier. It was a lovely day and nice and warm. We saw a few more drivers on the parade laps and watched the GP2 and GP3 races.
