The day Formula 1 came to London
I was searching through some of my old photos to see what I could use for today's almost daily photo when I came across some I took the day Formula 1 came to London. It was back in the summer of 2004. It was only a demonstration I believe to show the potential for a real race on the streets of the capital, but as you can see thousands of people turned out to watch, or more accurately to listen. Getting a view was nigh on impossible for most people.
I'd forgotten about these photos until I found them last night. I even managed to grab a couple of bad shots of Formula 1 legends Nigel Mansell and David Courthard.
Will Formula 1 ever return to the streets of London? One can but hope, it would be quite a spectacle.
