At scrutineering this morning in the town square, the presence of press and media along with the great swarms of fans and their spirit left me feeling almost as if I was dreaming. I am doing all I can to try and soak it all in – advice many have given me and I plan to make a discipline of.
This afternoon has been normal preparation by the team to the car and preliminarily going through seating variance issues with my co-drivers Rob Bell and Tim Sugden. I’m working to get my helmet functioning with the car radio system as well.
I have to say it feels just incredible to be here, to know I am on hallowed ground and such historic territory relevant to sports car racing teams and drivers around the world. I can’t wait to start driving!
