Since Rookie Superstar Lewis Hamilton has been DOMINATING (see the ‘Race Pos’ column) 2007 Formula1 season, interest in the sport has been rising across the planet.
One place where interest is sky-high is in the United Kingdom. The British Grand Prix takes place at the Silverstone racetrack on July 8th. Until then the English get treated to F1 Team testing currently going on at Silverstone, as well as the Goodwood Festival of Speed, which takes place this weekend.

All 4 current British F1 drivers (Lewis Hamilton, David Coulthard, Jenson Button, and Anthony Davidson) have confirmed participation at this year’s festival. In addition to the current stars, several familiar British F1 faces such as Sir Jackie Stewart, Damon Hill, Martin Brundle, Mark Blundell, Sir Frank Williams, Ron Dennis, Patrick Head, Ross Brawn, David Richards, Christian Horner and Adrian Newey have attended the Festival in recent years and may be present once again this year. Along with McLaren, Honda, and Red Bull Racing, Toyota and Ferrari will be on hand demonstrating their latest F1 packages.

If you have never stood on the side of a track and experienced the sound and fury of a formula 1 car passing you at full-throttle, I would highly recommend you add that to your list of things to do while you are still alive. To get you in the mood, crank up that volume and check out this short video taken yesterday during testing at Silverstone.
