your welcome to it , i hate that place . way to overpriced especially as you carnt see bugger all , i actually worked their when they rebuilt the pitts way back in 95/96 was great come the end of feb as testing season started and they had a few formula one cars buzzing around the track , also met david coulthard their wandering around , what a stuck up ignorant tw*t he is , one of the labourers asked him to sign his pack of rothmans fags (at the time he was sponserd by rothmans) and he said no and went off the other way in disgust that he had been botherd by a working person .so ever since then i am glad he hasnt won anything serves him right
