It’s the first time I’ve been near a computer since yesterday, what a great day it was too! Flash getting the title he has deserved for a long time, plus two new BTCC winners as well!
The last race was fantastic to watch as the cars drove on into the darkness, it was darker than the TV pictures suggest. It kind of reminded me of Le Mans, and it was good that plenty of fans stayed despite the rain and the cold.
I also stayed for the championship trophies to be awarded, something I’ve never been to before and it is definitely something worth seeing. In the end I was at the circuit until just before 7pm, by which time I’d also got into the GP paddock to have a look around. There’s something about wondering around a racing track at night that’s exciting and unusual, similar to walking around school in the dark.
Chris Evans was talking about the BTCC on Radio 2 this morning, they also had Gordon Shedden on the phone for a chat. I think they had Jason Plato on Friday as well?
While I was watching the end of race two and I saw Aron Smith (race winner), Gordon Shedden (overall champion) and Andrew Jordan (indy champion) getting out of their cars and I thought of a twist on an old joke.
“What do you call an Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman?”
