Agreed.

It dosen't get better than the British Grand Prix weekend. :D

The only thing that would beat it is maybe Torquay United getting through to the FA Cup final. :lol:

Its probarly going to be alot more expensive through-out my life than a smoking addiction but hey, I don't care. :D


Sounds like a good addiction to me :) :) Am determined to save up for Monaco though...........might just make it before I'm 40 (so a few years to go yet :wink: )

Or in my case Sheffield United. :P

As it's getting closer towards the British GP weekend now, those of us going and planning on meting up we should trade mobile numbers now. If anybody wants to swap numbers, just PM me. :)
