Touring Car Championship Brands Hatch

Just got back from a great days racing at brands hatch and i'm knackered as the day started at 9am and didn't finish tell 6pm which was filled with tyre smoke the odd crash a few beers and a belly of burgers

Brands hatch is a great place to see motor racing as even if you don't buy tickets in the stands which are placed round the track you get good views as you can just stand round the fencing and get a lung full of tyre smoke which will save on buying cigs for the day

Touring Car Championship Brands Hatch

Never been to Brands Hatch before but some tickets came up so had to go as wanted to see the last round of the touring car championship which had which had fabrizio giovanardi and jason plato locked in the battle to see who would pick up the crown this year

Touring Car Championship Brands Hatch

Will got there about 9am which was just in time for the free practice of the ginetta junior championship which is pretty mad as the drivers are only about 12/14 years old and there were going for it big time which was then followed by races from formula renault, seat cupra, renault clio and porsche carreras which have about two races over the day

Photo of me with the Seat Leon TDi which was the last outing for the SEAT Sport UK car in the Touring Car Championship which is a shame a it was a great car showing what a diesel engine could do on the track

Google Chrome Browser Is Here

Google launched Chrome an open source web browser to compete with Internet Explorer and Firefox today.
The browser is designed to be lightweight and fast, and to cope with the next generation of web applications that rely on graphics and multimedia. Called Chrome, it will launch as a beta for Windows machines in 100 countries, with Mac and Linux versions to come.

I'm liking the clean look and feel just having a problem with videos from youtube which seem a bit jumpy which also crashed the browser once so hope there's a fix soon

Charley Boorman Race to Dakar

Just got Charley Boorman Race to Dakar DVD the other day thanks to amazon which is the story of the latest adventure by Charley Boorman but this time without Ewan McGregor who he did the long way round and long way down films with a few years ago

This time he takes on the hardest race in the world The Dakar which covers 16 days of sand dunes and more sand dunes with rocky landscape in between with a new team consisting of Simon Pavey and Matt Hall

have to admit i wasn't sure i was going to buy this DVD but was shopping on amazon and needed something to get my order over the right amount for free delivery so got a DVD

Right from the start you know what your going to get as it the same crew from his other adventures plus a few new faces as for a 16 day trek a backup crew is needed for the bikes to keep them going each day

So from the very first episode i was griped as it's one of them DVDs where you sit there saying "i'll just watch one more episode" and you could sit there with a few beers and make a night of it

So even if your not into bikes but love other peoples adventures it's will worth buying as Charley Boorman brings the emotion of every day across it such a way that you feel your there with sand in your eyes and the hardship of sitting on a bike 12 hours a day in the hardiest bike race in the world

Riders and backup crew
