    Sounds good to me, looking forward to it even more now Will be a good day I am sure, just need it to be fine though, don't fancy getting completely pee wet through, although its not my car that will turn into a wet soggy car hey Tim But the camera kit won't agree with being too wet I don't think

    Fair bit of traffic this morning, mostly campers. And yes, it did include a Vodafone sponsored VW campervan Quite pleased to have sat behind that for a while!
    And I can officially announce that I have, in real life, overtaken both Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton





    *yes, I did have a slight vehicular advantage

    Interesting video:

    BBC News - Driver's-eye lap of new Silverstone F1 circuit

    The Formula 1 season reaches the UK this weekend as Silverstone hosts the British Grand Prix.

    The track has had a facelift for this year's race, with the circuit being extended to 3.66 miles and the addition of several new turns.

    Richard Westcott joined former F1 champion Damon Hill for a driver's-eye view of the new Silverstone.
