    So Paul, there’s this judge I know who needs new tyres for his car. Think you could get some Silverstone spec Pirelli’s for him?

    Confusion hits with the realisation that even though the position of the camera man was so, the picture ended up coming out mysteriously the wrong way around.

    “How long til the start of the race?”

    Bernie: Hey Paul, remember the tires that I ordered to be a little bit rubbish in order to spice up the things a bit?

    Paul: Yes, aren’t they amazing?

    Bernie: Yeah, a little too rubbish tough…

    Weve got some girls in the motorhome for a late night show and they are all wearing silverstone grade pirelli clothing. How about we go and see what the boys were really trying to achieve in the factory.
