We're off to Silverstone to see the F1......... I am so blooming excited it will be very difficult to sleep tonight.
We are setting off about lunchtime on Thursday to the campsite which is walking distance to the track. We are camping Thursday night to Sunday night and coming home Monday lunchtime so we don't miss a damn thing!
We'll be there for all the practice races Friday, qualifying on Saturday and the main events on Sunday. There is a party on Sunday and all of us (Me, Paul, Gaz and Hazel) have said we want to see everything.
I've been shopping today for the last bits and pieces. We'll have brekkie, pack the car and skedaddle down the motorway. It's only about 90 minutes drive so that's quite cool. We'll get there, get the tent up, have a few bevvies and get into the serious business of relaxing and having a brilliant time. With a bit of luck the weather will be good, if not we are prepared for rain so it doesn't really matter. A wet race is always good and we've got waterproofs and big brollies :)
Can't actually believe it has finally come, it is so long ago that we paid for the tickets.
And another good thing, whilst we are there I will be celebrating having passed my driving test 2 years ago so I will no longer be on probation and will be a fully fledged driver. I've not had an alcoholic beverage since Easter but I think that deserves a bit of a celebration.
