Think it’s the Wing/International Pits as it’s the full circuit, but we shall see.

Surprised it didn’t mention during the sign on and briefing.

Weather’s looking good!

<5% chance of rain, with highs of 9 degrees. Should make for good running!

Just chucked a bunch of wedding cake samples in the car, I don't think we'll have the usual hot beverage facility's but there will be cake!


Please for the love of God come find some. It was a full size cake to serve 70 people and it's to good to go in the bin.
