10th September 2011: F1 World Final

10th September 2011: F1 World Final

Friday night we spend getting everything loaded and ready for tomorrow’s World Final. With thanks to my crew who come to the farm to help out, we finish just after midnight, there’s so much to remember and take. The Mini truck has been loaded too just in case I get damage and can’t race on […]


4th September 2011: Ministox National Championship at Buxton

4th September 2011: Ministox National Championship at Buxton

We drove through the night from Coventry to Buxton, and slept in the car park. We were awoken by the sound of the Buxton gates opening. We’re first in and get a decent place to park. As usual Buxton’s weather doesn’t fail to make us grab our jerseys! There’s a short practice before the Gold […]


3rd September 2011: F1 at Coventry

3rd September 2011: F1 at Coventry

Earlier start than usual for us. We left farm at 10.00 because I wanted the kids to have a trial run at Buxton before their gold roof race on Sunday. Phoebe had never been to Buxton in this car before and Frankie has recently has engine trouble, so for my own piece of mind I […]


29th August 2011: F1 and Ministox at Belle Vue

29th August 2011: F1 and Ministox at Belle Vue

We arrive at Belle Vue on time. It’s already busy and Phoebe and Frankie JJ are on almost as soon as we arrive. It’s been raining and the track surface looks a bit sloppy! Phoebe is in races 1 & 2 and Frankie JJ in 2 & 3. Phoebe didn’t have any time to put […]

27th August 2011: F1 and Ministox at Birmingham

The first round of the Shootout has arrived! Guess I have to prepare myself for some aches and pains over the next 10 weeks! Phoebe and Frankie are racing tonight too, it seems a long time since we were here last. We leave home earlier than usual so we can try and get a decent […]


23rd August 2011: Ministox at Skegness

23rd August 2011: Ministox at Skegness

Much to Sam’s relief this is the last Tuesday night Skegness this summer. With us not getting back from Holland until 10.30 last night and it taking us 15 hours, we are all pretty knackered and could have done without it if I’m honest. Anyway Phoebe’s allowed to race again tonight and she’s looking forward […]


20th August 2011: F1 World Cup weekend at Venray, Holland.

20th August 2011: F1 World Cup weekend at Venray, Holland.

We left home on Thursday evening at 9.30pm to make our 6 hour journey to Dover. We fuelled the truck in Keighley ready for our big journey. All went well and we managed not to miss this ferry which set off from Dover to Calais at 4.00am. The crossing was smooth and after a short […]
