Anyone going?
My third visit to this event, and my last visit to Silverstone this year. Praying for at least half decent weather

Sorry MMM.....missed the midnight post............the "old" circuit will only be used for Historic events, that is as much as I know.....will have to wait till next year to see what events use it.......

Weather forecast not changed ....but it said showers today and not had any so far, nice and sunny.....

It's the series that shows F1 how it 'should' be done!!
Can't wait for tomorrow.

What a cracking day!
Great to see Anthony Davidson on the top step of the podium!!
Slightly tired now, and still 90 miles to go.

What a terrific weekdend of motorsport. I took all my photographs yesterday and then back to the race today. Shame the McNish Audi packed up so early - the first 40 minutes or so, with McNish and Davidson racing wheel to wheel, was fantastic. After that the Peugeots had it all their own way, but the time passed very quickly - loads of thanks to the Radio Le Mans folks on the radio commentary - kept us informed all the way through. There were lots of people around us who had no idea what was happening.

Then back home to watch the recorded Italian Grand Prix.

Shame it's back to work tomorrow
