You can tell it's a quiet week when even a NASCAR race at Daytona is relatively free of noise.
I say relatively, as when it did eventually kick off it involved half the field, even though everyone kept all their wheels on the track (and don't start saying that it's all down to the magical placebo of a blade spoiler)
But, that's Daytona, and that's why we love it (OK, so not everyone loves it....)
Elsewhere, Indycar went to the Watkins Glen, the world's most expensive Touring Car series (the GT1 World Championship) sweltered in Paul Ricard, France. F1 had a week to recover from Web-Air and Fernando Alonso counted to ten and took a deep breath ahead of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
Donington Park seems a whole other epoch!
