Hi guys, did anyone else make it to the free RBR homecoming event today? I went down there and just wanted to say how cool I thought it was, even if it was bloody freezing! It was really well run and not too difficult to get a decent look at the displays.
I’ve got some decent videos, does anyone know if I can post them directly on here for others to view?
I went down there and I spent a good four hours stood outside the garage, I actually quite enjoyed watching the mechanics go about their work! I did get squashed though, my poor camera survived the ordeal though.
@Eggry – Ah right, I don’t have a YouTube account unfortunately, I’ll look into it.
@Robk23 – I went down to the garage part but I think that as the busiest bit of whole show, so I opted for a good view of the area they did all the donuts! Did you get to meet anyone, or get some good photos down at the garage?
@Icthyes – still so gutted about Simoncelli, but glad his hair is living on with fans!haha
I got to meet a few people, I got autographs from Seb, Christian Horner and Adrian Newey. Unfortunately Mark Webber came near me twice but he didn’t sign my photo! Jake and DC also interviewed a few fans right in front of me, I’m glad they didn’t pick me!
Most of my photos before midday were poor because of the sun but there was certainly plenty to see, Webber and Vettel spun the cars around just outside the garage so that was good fun.
@robk23 – awesome footage, particularly the start up and wheel spin away from Vettel!
You should have asked Horner or Newey where the exhausts are going to be on the RB8, that info would be worth a few quid!haha
I was on the main straight hoping for a few high speed runs, but it was too damp really so for the run with Vettel and Webber both out at the same time I got a decent spot at the top where Vettel did some great donuts.
