British Mud Prix

It was touch and go as to whether the event would go ahead but the organisers decision to close the car parks and restrict attendance on the Saturday probably made the Grand Prix go relatively well. We actually ended up parking fairly close to where we did previously and were only delayed for the last 1/2 mile or so. The staff were pretty helpful not just towing people off but towing them on!! They also stayed well after the end to help as well.

Yes it was very muddy and some people were ill equipped but it was ok. The toilets were pretty good,better than Monza (wouldn't be difficult) and more plentiful than Spa. The racing itself was good and the entertainment not bad. The weather was a pain and typically it stopped for the race. Bernie's idea of sprinklers is not that mad. 

Pie was available on site, but for guaranteed quality reasons, supplies were bought in advance before we set off. The Pie of choice was the dependable and excellent Steak Pie from Phil Salts mmmm very very tasty. Also once you've got a reasonable spot your there for the day. An added treat was meeting up with some Vikings for beer in the rain!
