    We’re (well, I am at least) all very interested to know what you finally settled on for the message on your Italian GP banner!?

    Great pictures so far, I went to Monza in 2003 and the atmosphere and passion of the tifosi makes it a great race to go too. Can you visit the banking of the old Monza oval when the F1 is not on?

  3. I am sure Keith was so overwhelmed with our massive list of VERY witty suggestions for his banner that he couldn’t make the choice and settled for “I LOVE RALF”
