  • The Bo55 is back....from Daytona

    Well, just got back from a week in Florida for the Daytona 500.....did you miss me........thought not.....

    All I can say is that you have to be there...Seeing 43 highly tuned V8s whizzing past at almost 190MPH, inches from the wall and each other is a spectical that cannot really be visuallised on TV.

    On Saturday, in the Busche race, there was a 10 car pile-up right in front of us....wicked....and the tyresmoke...almost choked us....

    Sunday was a great race but sadly my driver (Tony Stewart) was punted off the track and finished dead last.

    A few other highlites of the trip were

    - Scraping ICE from the car, This is Florida for Cripes sake..
    - Pulling up an artificial golf green from a Golf store that had just closed down.
    - Watching a Delta rocket launch from Cape Canaveral
    - Airboat ride through the marsh lands east of Orlando and seeing some fairly big Gators * This is a MUST DO if you are ever out there, It's fantastic *
    - Chatting up the hostee on the Delta flight to New York and getting moved from Economy to 1st Class \/
    - Yep, Sunburnt again
    - Filling the car up and only costing $30 (£15)
    - Massive pizzas for $5

    I've posted a few of the race pics in here and will post some more here when I get them sorted out.
