What a truly awesome day, that's all i can say!
Met up with JayKay at Gatwick at 0730, got to Brands about 0815 and parked up on the South Bank.
As well as the 2 main World Touring Car races we also had the 'Swinging 60's' with cars such as Mustangs, Austin Healey's, MG's and Corvettes, Formula Palmer Audi, Formula Masters and the SEAT Eurocup.
But the highlight for me, and i can't stop thinking about the noise as this was my first 'live' experience, was our Andy Priaulx doing some flying laps in the BMW F1 car. Un ferkin beleivable sound for those of you that have never witnessed one in the flesh. And the speed......well, i've never seen anything like it. They were using the full Grand Prix circuit for all the races and it was so loud, you could hear it all the way around the track, even when it was deep in the forest! I'm still looking for words to describe it!
Anyway, enough of that, my keyboard is getting soggy from all the drooling! Here are the pics from the day, sorry about the fences in most of them, including some video clips (please excuse the quality but they were taken on my digital camera), which of course, include Andy in the BMW Sauber.
Big thanks again to Jay Kay, bl00dy fantastic day mate!
Yes, it's a LADA!
Being directly behind the pit's, it gave us the chance to try out the zoom on our camera's. These we mine on full zoom of the Grid Girls!
Now that i've REALLY got your attention, back to the cars!!
And now for the Grand Finale!
Andy Priaulx in the BMW Sauber F1 beast. Quality speakers are advised and maximum volume too!!!
