I think it's safe to say that was mum's first and last time at Silverstone :)) :))

Actually she said she enjoyed it, but prefered sitting in the car with a cup of tea and a cake =))

And I was suprised how easy it was to get there, we were late leaving the house and even though we missed the warm up (sat in the queue at that point) it still only took 2 hours, which is quicker than it takes us to get to Duxford. and once they've finished the A46 it'll be even quicker, I'm off to book my F1 2012 tickets =)) =)) =)) =))
