An amazing celebration of motor racing that ranges from "modern" day F1 and Touring cars back to pre 1950s Grand Prix, World Sports Cars and early F2.

There is just something engaging about watching the drivers, because you can actual see the driver rather than just the top of their helmet, wrestling with a 3 feet wide (that is metre to our friends in the metric world) steering wheel, as they try get the tyres to grip. All this while chasing the car in front, who is also having exactly the same handling issues.

More of the same tomorrow (Sunday) Oh and by the way, it snowed again. This time for just a few minutes and it did nothing to the quality of the racing other than put the schedule a few minutes behind.

The weather forecast for Sunday is dry most of the day with sunshine!
