Well you guessed it, this little puppy has arrived in time for the Brno 500cc Grand Prix. Chilling out in the old town on a pint of scrumptious mothers milk for the bargain basement price of 30p.
Went out to the track today for the Friday practice session, and could not believe my eyes. Some grand master has built the race track inside a GOLF COURSE, only three words in the english language could describe my elation at witnessing such a beautiful sight, BRING IT ON!
The tickets are really cheap, so i picked up a three-day pass for US$50, one level below VIP. That allows me to go into the paddock behind the pits and move right around the track, so got to say hi to Valentino Rossi as he left his motorhome after today's session. What a hoot!
Had 6 hours of motorsport today, ran into some Aussies at the gate wielding the flag, gives you chills up the back of your spine when you see a reminder of home. Like the other day when i was walking to the train station at 6.30am and Men at Work were on the radio, playing "I come from a land Downunder". Anyways, hung out with Adam and D.J. at the best part of the track, McCoy came off right in front of us but luckily he didn't injure himself. Will go out for tommorrow's session and again for race day. After 5 months of not being able to go to any major sporting events, hearing my mates going to the State of Origin and the cricket at Lord's, i hope they are sorry that they are not here.
Also the student card came in handy, i couldn't believe my luck when i stumbled across a new hotel in the centre of old town where all the action is, they gave me a a 50% discount so i only have to pay $US7.50 per night.
Anyways, must go. I have just a mouthful of beer left and i think it is time that i went out and checked out the local nightlife.
Wish me luck!!!!
