Tweets of the Week - Finding ways to keep racing // Karting, running, and ultimately counting down to Formula One

Published by Christine

We've reached the halfway point of the summer break, which means it's all downhill from here. The Belgian Grand Prix is in sight, now, but that doesn't mean the news is picking up. We're still having to find ways to entertain ourselves, and it seems - from our F1 on Twitter list at least - that other opportunities to race are a good way of filling the gap.
