Teamworks Birmingham

After all the excitement of Autosport International, we're now heading towards Teamworks Karting in the centre of Birmingham. The plan is to meet up with a host of familiar faces and thrash out some laps on the track. Attendees at today's inaugural F1 Bloggers & Friends karting event included Alianora (who organised the entire thing wonderfully), Steven Roy, Andy Taylor, plus myself and Mr C, whilst Jackie joined me trackside. We were also joined by Neil, Stuart and Scott from another website. A practice session, followed by seven heats of qualifying, led up to the race itself, and we saw plenty of action. One particular corner caused plenty of trouble, whilst we had a few bangs, prangs, cheers and tears. Okay, no actual tears, but we even saw a few appeals to the official ref (a computer who wasn't having any of it), and to top it all off, we had a black flag. Only the Sidepodcast crew could turn a simple karting event into a politics filled evening Max would be proud of. There will be plenty of pictures forthcoming. We'll also have a full round up of the night's events in a forthcoming podcast. Stay tuned.
