Weekend at Donington – BTCC

It’s finally beginning to look like spring around here.. the sun shines in the morning.. and for most of the afternoon.. the cold is not as biting… the wind has died down a bit.. The sun is shining as I write this!

Minh and I headed out to Donington Park National Circuit over the weekend to watch the British Touring Car Championships. Minh’s got a ton of pictures over on his blog if you want to check it out (Saturday and Sunday).. but I’ve included a few here as well..
