I went to the Biritsh F1 GP at Silverstone this weekend, with my 7 year old son.

Went up first thing on Sat morning.
Watched the support races (GP3, GP2 and Porsche Super Cup), and then the F1 quali
Then stayed at a motel about 20 mins from the track.

We went back to the track first thing on Sunday morning.
120,000 people, so we got there for 6:30am. Bright and early. But better to be parked etc, than be caught in a massive traffic jam.
Watched more support racing.
Then the Red Arrows air display put on a 1/2 hour show.
And then the F1 race itself. It was a bit controversial due to multiple tyre failures. But we enjoyed it none-the-less.
And then we managed to get back to the car quite quickly, so it didn't take too long to get out of the area, and quite quick back home.

8) Yoda. Glad you managed to get out of such a huge crowd and back home with little trouble.

So am I! :pray:

Last year we went to the practice day on the Friday
Took 3 hours to get out of the parking lot!

There had been a lot of rain. The whole area was flooded and there was chaos.

Good win for the Bulls over the Kings. Sharks scrape through with a win and helping the Cheetahs on the log.
Stormers awesome win over the Cheetahs.

The next games are going to be interesting. Will be a shame if the Cheetahs do not qualify for the playoff's.

Had the privilege to take my son with me to watch the 2nd Test between the British & Irish Lions v Wallabies on Saturday night. Not great rugger but absolutely thrilling. The Wallabies lost the first Test by 2 points after missing an attempt at goal after the final siren, and in this game, the scene was reversed with the Lions missing a very tough but goalable penalty chance after the final siren, to lose by just 1 point. So it's down to the final game in Sydney this Saturday - no doubt an absolute do-or-die affair. Can't wait!

Markus yes, the Cheetahs were doing so well, can't understand that they lost all direction and lost soooooo badly :big_eyes: :big_eyes:

It shows how well the Stormers can play if they don't listen to Fleckie!

27 kg lighter than the Cheetahs, but the scrums were solid.

Why did we have to wait until the 14th game for such a performance?

The pink cattle could, and should have been fighting for a place in the play offs. :wall:

Anyway, I hope the Cheetahs make it. I'm sure Naka will get out the hair dryer this week.

For those of you who don't know what I mean by the 'hair dryer'......

It is rumoured, (well founded I believe) that when Sir Alex Ferguson was unhappy with the performance of one or more Manchester United players he would stand right in front of them and deliver his criticism full blast at point blank range, hence the 'hair dryer'.
