A small but valuable and personal collection of F1 related trips and activities over the last few years...
I have been very fortunate to have easy and regular access to places all over the world at my relatively young age. Coupled with my passion for racing of all forms, I have seen this as a huge opportunity to visit places of interest regarding all forms of motor sport. Unfortunately, this first album only touches upon the surface of the places I have been. However, I fully intend on sharing my experiences and visits with like-minded people as time progresses.
To include pictures and videos of all the wonderful circuits, museums and areas I have been to would be impossible in one short album.
This first album focuses on the past 2 years of 2009 and previous to that, 2008. During time off from studies, I travelled extensively in Italy to where most of my family live. This gave me the opportunity to visit historical places such as Maranello, Fiorano, Imola and Monza. My base in Romagna gave me the perfect distance to travel each day to these special places (barring a 3 hour trip to Milan and Lombardia).
Added to the back of the album is a sole picture from a visit I made to São Paulo, Brazil in the early summer of 2009. Due to other commitments, I was unable to travel the extra hour out of the city centre to see the Interlagos circuit, although this is in the pipeline for Late 2010/Early 2011.
I hope this brief and introductory look into my travels gives you the same amount of pleasure as it has given me, and will continue to give me in years to come. I reiterate the fact that this is an introduction more than a summary, but this is something that will run and run, I'm sure.
