Super but Wet Weekend
On Sunday I was very lucky to be able to go the British Grand Prix. But my weekend started on the Saturday afternoon when I went to the hotel where the team were staying. I caught the bus from Oxford to Buckingham and found my way to the hotel..The Best Western. Once settled in, I took full advantage of the leisure facilities..lovely pool and then a sauna!!
My husband and the team came back from the track, so we had a few wines in the hotel bar..My friend Roz who's partner works on the team as well, was there..we had a great time. We all then got changed etc and made our way into town...few more wines and then for a meal. We got a taxi home, and prepared for the early morning start and the very long day!!
I was soooo lucky to get a pit pass, and go on the pit walk...this gives the real fans time to look into the front of the garages..amazing.
I had my pass for all day, so I was able to go into the Williams F1 motorhome for hospitality..and come and go as I pleased. Great being looked after, it is normally the other way round. Despite the weather and despite the fact that our team only got 1 point...it was a fantastic weekend.
