So a 5.15 departure from our hotel saw us parked and walking to the track by 6am.
The place was already packed, we managed to find a spot on the hill overlooking the whole track, Casanova Corner - it had a huge video screen so we were happy. Down side, no shade a very hot sunny day.

Mark and Ann spent some time doing battle with AirBerlin and then walked over to Santa Croce to see all the dead famous people! Mark tried valiantly to make use of his expensive LatinSchool education...but....actually seeing Galileo and Leonardo ...
