Went to round 1 at Brands this year, managed to get Corporate Hospitality tickets with Team RAC, so met both drivers, Colin Turkington and Tom Onslow-Cole, was allowed onto the grid before race 2, and spent some time in the pit garage. Food in the motorhome area was excellent, too! IIRC there was a Clio cup round as well. All in all a great day out, particularly as it was free.

Looking at the Monaco F1 race, it's probably the worst race in the year for my tastes, the only overtaking you see is of backmarkers under the Blue flag rules, so boring, and to call it the race everyone wants to see, as ITV seems to do, is a travesty.

Yet the bikes, be it The Doctor in Moto GP, or World Superbikes, or even Shaky etc in the British series, now that's racing, IMHO!!!
