Thanks very much guys – had a ton of fun doing it. Today was rather easier than yesterday, still a few mistakes but not as many as yesterday and I felt able to talk for longer periods without running out of things to say, particularly when we got to the F3 race.
I have to say, though, I think Ben does a superb job. Obviously he’s a mate so I would say that but once you give getting behind the microphone a try you realise what kind of effort and preparation goes into it and Ben does it superbly well. He does a lot of circuit commentary, often single-handedly, which can involve talking by himself for hour after hour, and you can’t do that well unless you take it seriously and prepare a lot for it, which he does.
I’ve just watched a little of the second GT race back and I must admit I expected to be a little embarrassed about my efforts but actually it was not too bad. I hope I get to do some more in future – certainly if I do I’ve got a much better idea what kind of preparation I need to do in advance in order to do it well.
Thanks to everyone for the support this weekend, I’ve heard from many readers over the last say or two. I hope you enjoyed what you saw – I thought we did rather well in terms of the quality of the races, really only the first F3 was a bit on the quiet side.
