FIA GT series

Silverstone was home to the FIA GT series this weekend, and we were there to witness it all. Although the weather wasn’t particularly spectacular, it was dry and I still managed to walk away a lobster.

I tried for ages to get one of the fire spitting Lamborghini’s on my D50, but my photographing skills are none existing, so I settled for this Aston Martin instead ;)

Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go shawty
It’s your birthday
We gon’ party like it’s yo birthday
We gon’ sip Bacardi like it’s your birthday
And you know we don’t give a fck
It’s not your birthday!

Yup, another year older, another year wiser… And what do you give someone who has everything? A day out on the track… Twice! :D

Blazing around SilverstoneUnlike last year I managed to stay on the track and even overtake a few cars. It had rained throughout the night and we had the 1st session of the day at 9am so I was very nervous, in fact, so nervous I forgot to switch the ASR off and the video camera on… Doh!

The 2nd session was at 11.20am by which time the track was completely dry and this time I was flying… Skylines may be fast on the straights, but they can’t corner if their life depended on it ;)

Why is pole position a Bad Thing? Cos it leaves you with no car to focus on and it may make you judge your braking point incorrectly therefore going to hard into a corner (which to my defense was slightly hidden from view due to a small crest) and spinning it 180 degrees :D

Still, the car and I survived and I was able to continue my track session (or more importantly, not stopping anyone else’s) as if it never happened… except that I have it all on tape!

Watch me go
