I'm pleased to say that one of our exec members has arranged to have the Union screen tomorrow's Grand Prix in Cholo. This is great, since traditionally the Union/Hospitality seem keen to go out of their way not to put F1 on. Gah, the troubles that gave me in my TV-less first year. If a reasonable crowd turns up then it's more likely that this can be made into a regular occassion…and makes it less likely that some awkward employee will decide to turn over to the snooker halfway through the race 8-). Word on the street is that the projector is broken, but meh, if you're a TV-less campus-dweller, you'll get over it!

Mark Spencer looks on

Our long-deceased club mascot looks on as Narain bangs in some laps at last year's test

Also, we're going to go to Silverstone on Thursday to watch the testing. We've got a couple of cars going down and perhaps a minibus, so if you're interested in taking a look, we might be able to give you a lift. Details to follow, but of course paying club members take priority ;). Last I heard, there were at least six teams signed up, so there's going to be plenty of action. I'm looking forward to it; 'tis my first chance to actually hear these new V8s, and to check out that shiny McLaren.

    Nice one – i was running round earlier trying to find out if anyone was showing it. I'll be there!

  2. Can we make the minibus take the lead on the drive down the M40, and recreate our own "Trulli Train" :D ?

  3. Haha, if you really want you can follow the minibus…but unlike most F1 circuits, the M40 does have plenty of overtaking opportunities :-p

  4. All these F1 entries are boring – get back to complaining about your personal life…

    I went down today – those McLarens are real pretty close up and in the sunlight – glued to the track too

    Tom: Personal wha…?
