Later in the day once I'd watched the opening races I headed over to the shopping area of the circuit on a scouting mission. Since starting up the Gavin MacLeod Collection I'd often thought the best method of promoting my dad's artwork would be to purchase a stall at a BTCC or Formula 1 event, only the cost of which is pretty daunting with no guarantee of sales.

The final 'Clio Cup' race of the day saw Lewis Hamilton's younger brother Nicolas crashing out directly in front of my seat at Luffield corner. Now into his second season as a racing driver, he is growing in talent and was a major distraction for the fans who would rather take snaps of the stricken Renault and its forlorn-looking owner than concentrate on the race. Fair enough I say, he's a good lad.
Jason Plato (MG KX) drove a stunning final race, battling his way from 20th on the grid to take his second win of the day and now moves to within 15 points of the leader, Matt Neal (Honda Racing).
