Silverstone 1999

10th and 11th July.
Winner - David Coulthard, Mclaren Mercedes. 2nd - Eddie Irvine, Ferrari. 3rd - Ralf Schumacher, Williams.

We arrived at the campsite just in time to watch qualifying on a portable TV and to hear it in the background from the circuit. Managed to get in to the circuit on Saturday afternoon to have a look round. Sat at Bridge for the race, which was memorable as being the race where Michael Schumacher broke his leg. Fortunately he has more than made up for it since!
