We’ve arrived in Spa and after 2 sec I was ready for beer. Ian and Rich proceeded to take minutes with their tents, being so old fashioned.
After a rather slow burning attempt at a BBQ we manage to eat a few burgers and pass out for the night. That at least was the plan. A group o over enthusiastic lotus owners next door kept us awake however. On top of that I’ve worked out that my sleeping bag is… Well… Rather thin. Had to wear two t-shirts and jeans to not freeze to death in the bastard!
But, none of that can take anything away from my spirit. Awaking at 8am to the sound of a Ferrari warms up every cell in my body!
The day turns out to be great. We see loads of cups racing, warming up, qualifying and watch an amazing pole by Fisichella an get slightly sun burnt. The day ends with a somewhat nasty accident by coletti (GP2) right under our nose. As I write this I’ve no idea if he’s OK. I hope so.
Only one thing they could improve here: the food. We’ve got deep fried fat coming out of our ears by now!
