At Donington we usually see excellent racing. I am looking foward to it.

I will always remember 2001 when Muller and Plato bumped each other. First

according to the BBC weather report for Nottingham, It's heavy rain for Sunday as well. The feilds going to get quite muddy for camping BHCP.

I am off on Sunday so was looking at the possibility of going to watch it. Not sure if I want to now, knowing it's going to pour down all day.

Yeah it don't look good, but the forecasts change every day so maybe by the weekend things may be better. Not camping this weekend, travelling from Lincoln for each day. If you decide to go Steven PM me, can try meet up, will try to get some Saturday pix up on Saturday night as well.

Just opened my tickets on returning home and the map on the back says no access to the infield, so no more inside the Old Hairpin viewing Sad Sad

I think have to walk round to the outside of it then, at least see them coming down the Craners, and some of them (probably John George is favourite) end up in the gravel at the bottom.

Yep agreed dave, the first Carrera Cup race was mega. Shocked

The BTCC action was good, if not brilliant. I am very happy for Thompson, him and BTCC go well together. Matt Neal seems to have the edge over Gio. Mad

Rain is not good for the spectators though. It lashed it down at one point.

I've just watched the first race and I can know see why Jelley didn't compete the other 2 races. We walked past the car, when it was in the barrier,We could only really see part of the front bonnet and thought it didn't look that badly damaged. lol! What do we know.

Me and Boyhitscarpimp met up.

Didn't get back home till 10pm. I left my house at 5.15am Got loads of photo's so I will try and upload a couple, Although mine won't be as good as his. I am off to bed.

Hey Steven, you must be shattered!!! We got back about 8.15 last night.
I thought it was a good day apart from getting a soaking cos i said about going to pit walkabout. Donington was umbrella graveyard last night, every bin passed contained some!!!
Watched races 1 & 2 last night, yeah Steven from the left hand side there didn't look much wrong with Jelley's car, we couldn't see the right whilst walking past.
Over the next few days i will get the pix uploaded, and try to catch up on some of the racing from other series from this weekend, and download DTM race, and avoid seeing results til i've seen the races.

I was. The car park was empty when I left so I got straight out So I was happy about that. I had to stop at Wetherby services to have a break for 15 mins or so as I needed it.

Yeh, You made me get soaked, But I didn't mind it. It was good to see the drivers as I normally don't do that at Croft.How long did you stay after I left?.

I wish I made a Harry Vaulkard banner of some sort Maybe would of got on the telly then. lol!

We had a quick wander round the paddock but neither Martyn nor the other team members we know were about so we just went back to the car then so only about 10 mins after you.
You can always do a Harry banner at another race, plan it now and it'll be ready for Croft in 4 weeks.
Off to work now Sad rather be at home so much to do.....

I wish we had one of those big screens to watch as it looks like we missed out on a fair bit of action around the other parts.

I will look a bit stupid so don't think I will bother.

Enjoy work mate, If that's possible Laughing
