    I've actually won something for the first time in my life!

    Entered a compo a while ago to name the new Pit and Paddock complex at Silverstone circuit - and won with 9 other folks!

    Got VIP tickets to the opening, british GP and motoGP as well as a racing experience of choice Over the moon!"

    Synaesthesia, you lucky devil you- you've managed to change my complexion from frostbite blue to an envious green!

    So what was the winning name then?

    Mark

    Yeah, it's called The Wing. It was suggested by 10 people and they liked it so much (as it bears in mind the tracks aviation history and the shape of the building) they awarded the prizes to all 10 winners

    Was almost in tears yesterday when I found out (after spending half an hour confirming it wasn't a scam) - then phoned my best mate as the guest I can take to all events - as it's both our dreams fulfilled!

    I didn't take the call, somebody must have claimed to be me. The least you can do is take loads of photos to share with us.

    Aye, I thought of that just after seeing it at the Renault World Series event. Reminded me of a stealth bomber a little. Can't wait for the launch party!

    Was in September this year, and was July the year before that. Went to both, got one hell of a sunburn in the July one! Great event that, can't fault it for the price!

    I wasn't at the Renault one, but was at the F1 in July and my gosh the sunburn was bad, I'm sure Timbo343 was also rather well burnt as I was with him at the F1.

    I was peeling on my ears for about 2 weeks after, was a lovely day though, bit too hot at times but I'd rather it be that way then pouring with rain, I suspect its not the nicest place to be in torrential rain!

    May bump into you at the F1 seen as you get tickets for that as part of your prize!
