I am having some serious BTCC with-drawl symptoms already. However, it fills my heart knowing that at the end of July I will be at Snetterton for the whole weekend. If you weren't aware I camped last year at snetterton for BTCC and it was incredible. This year I am wiser, more motivated and happier. There is no where else I'd rather be that weekend. It is going to be incredible and there's lots of reasons why.
Firstly, I shall be reuniting with some of my best friends Hannah, Gemma and Becki (we got Becki into it at media day this year). I dont get to see them a lot and it's where I first met Gemma and Hannah so I think it's going to be a tradition now! Hannah and me are literally double trouble, same humour, same sort of personalities. Gemma is the adult of the group, the one that calms us down. Becki well this will be her first camping BTCC weekend. Unlucky for her she is sharing a tent with me! But the gang will be back together for over two days.
Also, Hannah and Gemma are so good at camping, me on the other hand awful! So hopefully with them it will be better. Although they basically saved me in the rain in my small tent last year. That's how we become friends, they took pity on me! But waking up to the sound of cars round a track is one of the most incredible feelings in the world. I do enjoy camping, especially with them last year. I also want to improve my camping skills a lot so if anyone has any tips or advice let me know! I love not having to get up earlier than I need to and worry about queues and getting there by a certain time because i'm already there. Plus the track and paddock after most people have gone is quite nice, its quiet, you have access to places. For example last year we went on the track and on the podium.
An obvious reason why I am so excited it because the action in each series will be immense. Straight after the summer break, everyone all rested up and ready to go out there and fight. Plus Snetterton is a good track in my opinion. I find if you sit along the senna straight you can see a good third of the track. Drivers, teams and fans are all going to be raring to go and get back racing again. Also, being at a racetrack gives me anyway a special community feeling. Like I could go up to anyone and have a chat with them because we're all there for the same reason, to watch amazing racing. Every series has been action packed, BTCC, F4, Clio cup, Ginetta, you name it there has been incredible racing and will continue to be.
I cannot wait to be back at a track and it will feel like I will be at home. Racing and friends, what else could I ask for? I may also have a few interviews lined up with drivers from a couple of different categories, if there is anyone you want to try talk to let me know. I am also going to be vlogging my weekend. I always thought if I did videos it would be something I would watch someone else do. And I love watching people have experience and feel like I am there too. So that's something i'm going to do. I want to encourage as many people as possible to watch BTCC and all the other categories and go to their events. I can sit here and tell you everything I love about it and why it is so good but I want to show you as well because actions speak louder than words.
If you were thinking about going or happen to be free and near Snetterton on the last weekend of July do come down and give it a chance. You will not regret it.
