"If all goes well work could start at the track in October this year. If we started it in October it should be finished by early spring 2010.

"So everything's ready to go, the only thing we don't have at the moment is the money."

Definately too early, but there's just 2 races to go. :) Donuts for breakfast is my tradition at Silverstone, along with the customary bacon egg and sausage breakfast. A bit of black pudding wouldn't go amiss either... yum!

Indeed I am, and a few others on this forum I can think of are going too. Perhaps we should arrange for all of us who are going to meet up at various points throughout the weekend. :)

depends whether you want to see speed, action,be close to the track, near the pits. Ive watched in lots of places all good for diferent resosns. Bridge enclosure this year (and the last few years) cheapest reservable seats.

Yeah I think I would like to get as close to the action as possible. In 2000 I sat in the pitstraight which was quite good.

Yep, 1-2 for Mclaren.

And DC equalled Moss' record of 3 Silverstone wins in a row.
