Welcome, Lee. Glad to have you here.

I've been to many F1 races. Trust me, there's nothing like actually being there!

I'm over here in the States, too, so no Silverstone for me this year. Hope you have a great time. We have a couple of good threads about what to take along to your first race.

smashing bunch of people on here, with a couple of exceptions, namely the yodeller and the redneck

THE redneck? I thought there were at least three of us here!  :yahoo:

Maybe they just went to the race, got drunk together, ogled at some Italian girls wearing less than their wives

My wife sometimes wears less, but it's not made entirely of spandex  :P

Before we allow our members to go to races with strangers they
have to pass a background test.
Scott wanted this rule after the Monza GP ;)

Ian's seemed to have gotten lost in the mail - if only I had gotten it before I went to Monza   :'(

Welcome Limelee.  Good job you found a wife who could buy you a house, a car and an F1 ticket!!  You've got our admiration.   :good: :good: ;)

Have a great time at the GP - and if you can't find anyone to go with, have fun anyhow...you'll run into plenty of people who'll be happy to talk about all things F1 and share something to drink with.  I went to Monza my first few times alone, and as much as Ian was wonderful company, the first few times it was quite ok to just do and go where I wanted to, when I wanted to without looking out for the wants or sore feet of a companion.

I held your bag too when you went to the loo Scott.  :DD

Now now lads, I'm sure there was plenty of mutual bag holding going on.

You have to watch those shifty Kent residents.

He may come off as a buffoon but there's a mastermind
behind those beady eyes ;)

I went in 2009 and had a great time! Memorable moments include spending 45 minutes chatting to a complete stranger about hire cars, Jenson Button and the merit of learning foreign languages, all while queueing for a shower at about 4 am...

Unfortunately there's no possibility of me being able to attend this year - among other things, I have to save up for a friend's wedding.

Which one are you a friend of, Will or Kate?   ;)

Neither. The friend in question marries tomorrow, not 3 weeks ago.
