My second Race of Champions and this time I bought the family with me and also had front row seats so was worth paying for.

The Lewis Hamilton vs Chris Hoy race had to be cancelled for safety reasons so we had to settle for them doing a parade lap in a rather tasty McLaren SLR 722. David Coulthard stuffed one of the cars right in front of us and also nudged one of the barriers with his F1 car later on.

It was great to see how the different types of drivers handled the circuit in the range of vehicles with some very close races being fought. I know my wife and daughter want to go again so it looks like this will become an annual pilgrimage for us.
