Thanks for replies - feeling really excited now!!! The race is the day before my birthday and 2 weeks before my son's so it's sort of joint pressie but really for him - got a fab top for him today which is HotWheels racing brand and on the back is says "Pit Crew" and has a car attached as a gift - always said we would make big thing of his 10th birthday (double figures and all that) and he will be SO thrilled - I am so thrilled - yeee haa!! No doubt he will get many more treats on the day!

We went to Goodwood Festival of Speed last year (always do as local to us) and had the chance to meet Lewis Hamilton. By chance we happened to be in an area he was being ushered out of in 'secret'. By chance I was yapping (always chatting me!) to a security bloke and he said - "stay here and your son will be well happy" - waited a mo and out he came! Had quick few words, my son gave him a hug and we got nice autograph - FANTASTIC!!!! Pure chance - right place, right time - and only cos I was a little lost and asking the security some daft question - ha ha!! After that I said to my son that if poss I would take him to Grand Prix - well now we are going!! :D :D :D

I am a newbie here - been an F1 fan for a long time and always follow it on TV/mags etc - but not looked for forums before. I am a skier and a moderator on a forum. Spend all time thinking of skiing then as it ends (now) turn to F1 - just curious - do you have meet ups and things? Alot of our ski forum are in resort at same time and so say "hi". Do you folk on here tend to meet up? Just wondering really.

Anyway. great to be on here and thanks again for all the advice.

Here's to a great season!!

:D

I think a Forumula1 get together would be a rather interesting experience.

Silverstone should be a blast though :thumbup:
No more James Allen :(

A bacon and egg buttie and probably a slice of Racechick's chocolate cake. Well she brought some last year and hopefully with more of us at Silverstone this year she might make another. :)
