On Saturday we went to Stony Statford so Pauly could visit The Climbers Shop in search of a new Patagonia jacket. He tried on all of them and in the end he found one he liked!
This year the FIA World Endurance Championship and European Le Mans Seriesraces at Silverstone fell on the Easter weekend, this meant we could go on all three days!
On Friday we saw the first WEC free practice session.
We enjoyed our few hours at the track getting ourselves in the mood for a weekend of racing!
On Saturday we arrived in time to queue for the pit walk! We enjoy the pit walks and autograph sessions, it is exciting to get close to the cars and drivers.
On Sunday we arrived at the track with enough time to walk out to Becketts, we didn’t go to the pit walk as it was at 8am, four hours before the start of the race! We didn’t feel like a really long day.
We sat in the grandstand at Becketts. It is one of our favourite parts of Silverstone as you get such a good view of so much of the track.
Here are the four LMP1 hybrid cars. The first few laps are so exciting as the LMP1 cars make their way through the rest of the field.
There were a few small rain showers, but they didn’t make too much difference. We watched from various places around the track during the six hours of the race.
It was mostly overcast but we had a glimpse of some sunshine towards the end of the race.
We left Cornwall early on Saturday morning and headed towards Bristol. We spent the afternoon in Clifton.
Our stay was OK, but the room have a very creaky floor!
We went to Pentewan beach to look for seashells and sea glass.
We had a lovely time and found some good bits. We drove on to Mevagissey. We had chips for lunch, Zoë and I had battered halloumi and chips, it was amazing! The weather was fine and it was really mild, sitting outside was lovely.
