Popped up to Silverstone to get one last look at the Academy racing before mine arrives. There were surprisingly few spectators, nevertheless the racing didn’t disappoint.
We saw several classes – The Academy, RoadSport, SuperSport and Superlights. Without exception the racing was incredibly close between the packs of cars on the circuit – regularly changing places lap after lap.
This weekend really whet my appetite, and for the first time I’m genuinely excited about it. Sounds like a weird thing to say, but since putting the deposit down nearly a year ago, it’s all seemed a long way off. With the car arriving in two weeks (so I’m told!) Silverstone was the perfect aperitif.
