What a Grand Prix! It’s been a few years since I last attended one so this was a great event to get back in to the swing of things. Firstly, it’s great to hear that both Zhou Guanyu and Alex Albon are okay after their first corner crashes. Secondly, it’s fantastic that Carlos Sainz scores his first win, and for Ferrari at that. Beyond that there wasn’t too much else that happened off the track—I didn’t see any supercars, let alone any other Ferrari’s en route or in the car park. Perhaps I just missed the memo about Supercar Parking and was in the wrong place. Maybe next time.
Another September, another Ferrari Racing Days at Silverstone, and although it is 4 years since the my last attendance I wasn’t initially expecting to make this one. Previous commitments, one by one, started to disappear and so with less than a week to go I went in search of the promo code that was giving free entrance to Ferrari owners and requested a couple of tickets. That being said, it wouldn’t be a proper Ferrari day out without some sort of mishap.
A much better Silverstone Classic than 3 years ago, which although we did attend, it was Ferrari-less due to events earlier in the year. That said, there isn’t really too much that we can say here that isn’t already widely known, as The Classic is one of the biggest motoring events of the year.
