… your mother knows to check your Google calendar to see if it’s a race weekend before phoning you.
… you are driving through Belgium on your way from the Nurburgring to Brussels and see a sign for Spa-Francorchamps and HAVE to detour just to go have a look at Eau Rouge.
… your honeymoon was a driving trip round Europe that was a pure excuse to go to Spa and Monza Grands Prix (and it wasn’t my husband’s idea, it was mine!).
… You know that the plural of Grand Prix is Grands Prix.
… You fight with your husband over who gets to drive the Type R to work, as it corners better (much better) than the Focus.
After renting a Kangaroo at Monza last year, they are an absolute must. This is especially true of you’re going general admission – if a car crashes on the other side of the track you have no idea what happened, just that they’ve suddenly gone missing! Commentary at a lot of tracks is near impossible to hear due to the noise of the cars, and it’s usually in multiple languages, so you can miss a lot.
The headphones give you hearing protection too and it’s easy to hold and navigate around the different options. You can rent them for the day or the weekend and as was noted above, headphone splitters allow 2 people to share the same unit. The picture quality was excellent too.
