Getting up close

I’ve been very lucky and been given a media pass (thank you Graham :) ) which allows me to get out into the pits and up very close by the track – very cool!

The pits are used by the Toyota Racing Series cars. All the other races (V8s, Porsches, Minis etc) come from their various areas, are sorted on the dummy grid before going out on the starter grid.

I expected eveything to be very well organised – but I think I expected to see, well, dirty stuff like oil, grease and black smelly stuff like that. All beautifully neat and tidy!
