These days its nigh on impossible for children to get up close to Formula One cars. Life was very different when my brother and I were children. The sport isn’t going in a direction that makes me happy as a life long fan. It’s so much about money these days and has so little to do with inspiring the future generations to love this form of motor sport. One of Monkey’s favourite exhibits at the British Motor Museum has always been the old Jaguar F1 car. I love this shot, taken last month when he saw his favourite car in the newly opened collection storage part of the museum.
Monkey was in deep conversation with the ‘driver’ when I walked up behind him. We’re both on countdown until the season restarts in a couple of weeks. Let’s hope Channel 4 do a better job of hosting than ITV did.
