Name: Silverstone Circuit
Where: Silverstone, Northamptonshire, England, UK
Why: British F1 Grand Prix
Who: MSA Motor Sport Association UK
Notes: My one and only British event turned out to be a disaster. First the train tickets for Eurostar were lost in the mail so I had to hitch a ride with fellow marshals from Le Mans just to get into the country. Then I had a bad gout attack on the first day of the event that lasted for the whole weekend, so even though I got dressed in my overalls all I could do is sit on my ass in the corner in pain and watch other marshals work. I have tremendous respect for the way British marshals work their events so it was an excellent learning experience for me.
