    Hey Keith! I think Sidepodcast were also at the paddock yesterday? Did you run into them? :) They said the drivers weren’t as outgoing as usual. Did you feel the same way yesterday?

    No I didn’t – I only arranged my visit at the last minute so I wasn’t able to fix anything up with them. I’m going to do a write-up of the day later.

    I attended on Wednesday, sadly not with a paddock pass. Although it was immensely enjoyable seeing (and hearing!) the cars.

    Great pictures Keith.

    Sush – these are 15 of several hundred pics I took, more to come later.

    oh ok, that is a bit stupid of me, thinking u’d only taken about 12 pics. Common sense doesn’t win this round.

  9. “Hey Keith! I think Sidepodcast were also at the paddock yesterday? Did you run into them?”

    looking at the pics, i think we were in different places in the pitlane. good shots though.

    “They said the drivers weren’t as outgoing as usual.”

    no, no, they were just not as outgoing as the day before. wednesday evening there was plenty of hanging about and banter at the end of the day.

    Sorry I missed you guys :-(

    no sweat. it seems like quite a good place to meet up actually, not as easy to get lost like you can at the gp or at goodwood, and not as crowded either.

    Sidey, you just might’ve made Keith a bit more guilty saying that. Hahaha! :)

    damn, i meant we should keep it in mind for next year. doh!

    Will do – until then there’s Goodwood. Got my tickets today, just opened a thread on the forum to find out who else is going:

    Goodwood Festival of Speed – Who’s Going?

  15. just a question – how difficult is it to get to the paddock and pitlane during the test ?
