    Silverstone and rain is great fun, just think of Glastonbury with cars making loud noises instead of crappy bands
    If you never been to an F1 race, just wait till you hear the F1 engines fire up, it really is awesome, you feel it as much as hear it!
    Have a great time

    Lucky you are going! I will be watching the whole thing on the BBC including the practises which I keep open while I work.

    Good luck to the brits this year!! Mclaren 1-2 with Resta 3rd would be a dream result.

    Yeah I'm going VIP stylee Can't wait, although traffic worries me a little. Have to be there at 8 for breakfast although thankfully not via the front door.
    First time too, huge F1 fan and although I've been many times before (testing, renault world series, BTCC) I've never been F1.
    Make sure you think of me when you see the Wing!

    Going to a party near there Saturday night for wifes cousins 30th. Having to come back same night as all hotels are fully booked due to the GP.
    Funny thing is the cousins dad AND husband work in F1 on the cars, so its not like she didnt know it was happening this weekend!

    Some friends work there in the study centre, and it gets taken over each year to use for the police control room ... it means they have to use their passes and go and sit elsewhere ... on the Sunday ;-)
