It was go, go go....

Awesome. Thats the only word i can use to describe my weekend. The A1 GP in durban was a blast. I was lucky enough to spend all 3 days at the race, and with full on rain on Friday, a scorcher on Saturday and lovely overcast weather on Sunday, I have a full on "my dad is a farmer"sunglasses tan .

The race was won by ex F1 Dutchman, Jos Verstappen. South Africa came 5th in the main race which was brilliant consedering that he started 20th and there were only 8 cars left in the race.

The atmosphere was incredible with evry single person supporting all the drivers.
Those cars are LOUD, and fast. Even though I have only been living in Durbz for 2 and a half years, I still think it was absolutley amazing what was pulled off this weekend. If you watched on TV you will know what I mean. The track was built in only 12 weeks, and was super cool.

Here are some of the pics I took with some more to come sooon :)
